between the book ends
big bang to final heat death
standing in the light

between the book ends
big bang to when protons decay
standing in the light

between the book ends
big bang to the final rip
standing in the light

between the book ends
big bang to uncertain stop
standing in the light

the lives of the dead
Emperor of the known world
Nearly forgotten

Sunday, November 28, 2010

the bridge, the silent
winter landscape between us,
we hold hands in dreams
the gate, the flower
the exchange of touch, looks, licks
the thrusts, trust, release

Saturday, November 27, 2010

stroking the petals
playing with the nerve cluster
breath, fingers, tongue, juice

Friday, November 26, 2010

my housemate's birthday
going out for a curry
wearing silly hats

Thursday, November 25, 2010

spirit animal
the mouse in a shadow maze
searching nervously

the memes of my world
I bow to the east and west
Kali, Jesus, science

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I had love, yet to
pick at the scab of childhood
the can of maggots
during my childhood
books my solace, clouds of flies,
bags of food rotting

Monday, November 22, 2010

my self confidence
brittle, the slightest knock breaks
a glass spider's web

Sunday, November 21, 2010

soap greyed bath water
womb warmth enveloped and steam
in the cold bathroom

Saturday, November 20, 2010

beyond hydrogen
forged within a star
the dust in my tears

Friday, November 19, 2010

The autumn garden,
masala of damp and cold.
Waiting for acorns.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

my subconscious mire.
My mother ... gross ... freudian
just a dream but yuck

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

write about that now or not?
I force myself to.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

integer to float
cast to a more precise type
it is still discrete

Monday, November 15, 2010

brutally honest
poetry of warts and all.
Did I go too far?
skid mark on my bed
what the fuck! I clean myself,
so why is it there?

Sunday, November 14, 2010

my thoughts torque and tilt
surfing a wave of crazy
extra meds for me
Remembrance Sunday.
Free. Yet war has murdered sleep
for my godfather.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

place strand over strand
learning the weave of the knot
memory, life, death

Friday, November 12, 2010

my furry neighbour
the world's meowyist cat
exploring my house

Thursday, November 11, 2010

I thought it was me.
Bereft of motivation
because of the meds!

the drift of silence
letter to a dead father
sea glass tumbling

inspired by "Full fathom five"

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

the quiet breathes deep
the warm bed of sleep's river
holding me with love

Monday, November 8, 2010

to save the tiger
beautiful fearsome neighbour
fine in the abstract

Sunday, November 7, 2010

thou art "art" my muse
illusion and delusion
I grasp you recede
unrequited love
tranquility eludes me
I seek to awake

Saturday, November 6, 2010

the night drawing in
the season where some friends shriek
inside their marrow

Friday, November 5, 2010

festivals of light
Diwali and Bonfire Night
Leicester together

Thursday, November 4, 2010

blue is the beauty
sailing in the solar wind
a spectrum apart

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

My uncertainty.
With the observation done
the wave collapsed

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

resist temptation
slide through the water of doubt
she loves another

Monday, November 1, 2010

walking out of step
i hear the beat of a drum.
my syncopation
