the song of sixpence
mirror for an unjust world
where is Jenny wren?

i hate this module
concentrate on endurance
only need to pass

Saturday, January 29, 2011

terrycloth comfort
clinging like Harlow's monkeys
food, alcohol, blue

Friday, January 28, 2011

orbiting the clock
my body clock drifts, daylight
phasing in and out

Thursday, January 27, 2011

polis, urban space
masala of immigrants
the raucous music

the polis, guildhall
rats and cats and the river
Roman baths, McDonald's

creative interzone
jobs, shops and traffic wardens
parks, pubs, dog shit, noise

I love my city
the exuberant ragged flow
detritus magic

on the empty page
etch the binary graphemes
sail to ithaca

the Hollywood divorce
available through Facebook
online mudslinging

my little blue pills
double dose to keep me sane
or at least alive

Sunday, January 23, 2011

the Bristol Stool Scale
last night we were talking shit.
Nurse keeping it real.

in case there's a fire
put your heart in a shoebox,
accessible, safe.

Naked you run for your life,
watch everything precious burn.

a knock, I descend
suicide thoughts fill my head,
tangled in jangles

Thursday, January 20, 2011

she craves a baby,
gnawed by time, ignored by love
she paints the facade

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

children of the dream
a vision reached for and lost
the future's for rent

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

slowly unwinding
the knot of stress unravels
and my world opens up

Monday, January 17, 2011

rabbit visitor
hopping around the kitchen
furry explorer

Sunday, January 16, 2011

the jangles of skew
off balance with thoughts of you
jitters tangled worms

Saturday, January 15, 2011

take the chemicals,
your brain needs realigning
to rational thought

Friday, January 14, 2011

succulent silence
from the disquiet of bees,
the nectar of peace

Thursday, January 13, 2011

song stuck in my head
spiralling behind my eyes
it looped through my dream

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

the search for a job
my greatest enemy - fear,
another breakdown

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

I see an echo
i shone my love through a prism
corinthian glass
the blotting paper
a sketch in one thousand tears
stains of memory

Monday, January 10, 2011

a spider's eye view
reality's fractal shoreline
fissures in my mind

Sunday, January 9, 2011

your belly button
the curve of your lower back
breathing in the dark

Saturday, January 8, 2011

slip into the pool
drift away into silence
sleep and suicide

Friday, January 7, 2011

I'm full of jitters
they vomit forth from my eyes
jangling naked

Thursday, January 6, 2011

filled my soul from your eyes and
then you walked away

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

the rain gently falls
a grey January day
sheltered and warm home

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

illness, brain spirals,
a shark circling, swirl, storm,
static fried neurons

Monday, January 3, 2011

slowly improving
hours of struggling uphill
but now the code works

Sunday, January 2, 2011

the pitter-patter
of stress and anxiety
inside my stomach

Saturday, January 1, 2011

caesium second
the annual increment
galactic orbit
