water from the tap
cool and clear like love, washing
the thirst from yearning

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

the cunt of freedom
intoxicating riot
boundaries and peace

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

feel the eyelids droop
taking a languorous blink
sudden start - cat nap

Monday, June 27, 2011

the little corporals
are taking names on the bus
Don't go home tonight
Stay with me and dance at last
For tomorrow the sky falls
I curl and wither
bowed with a weight of madness
frost burned fern - brittle

Sunday, June 26, 2011

forget the mad eyes
I send towards you - frost sharp
I regret my snow
whirling colour sea
still point in a dark spotlight
I sit amidst life
spider on the breeze
paragliding on a thread
risks predatory joy

Saturday, June 25, 2011

shoots and leaves appear
oak saplings in bonsai pots -
despite the dry Spring

Friday, June 24, 2011

the perfume I bought
the present gathering dust
bottled emotions

Thursday, June 23, 2011

found when I was drunk
a little plastic tiger
vulnerable strength

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

lying in the bath
drifting off smoking a spliff -
before my break down
waiting at the bar
the pint of Guinness settles
pattern in the foam

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

sitting on the bus
listening to my iPod
going home from work

Monday, June 20, 2011

unable to make
a strong statement of colour
i see shadows; break;

Sunday, June 19, 2011

the empty vortex
another voice in the wind
cast adrift in sand

Saturday, June 18, 2011

get back on the bike
journey miles in the darkness
through the woods and moors

Friday, June 17, 2011

putrescence - maggots
childhood memories - madness
cloud of flies - alone

Thursday, June 16, 2011

hand in the river
connected by arteries
the oceans linked poles

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

slice my soul - river
put the feelings on a shelf
wash the silence - stroke

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

the lightening parade
and thunder rush, tequila
and youth screaming wild

Monday, June 13, 2011

gumption test, a wall
struggle past, moving in steps
mountain canal locks

Sunday, June 12, 2011

walking the long road
destination far away
my focus wavers

Saturday, June 11, 2011

sail and steal moments
the pirates of happiness
the flag of bones flies

Friday, June 10, 2011

insomnia strikes
sleep my friend my enemy
taut relationship

Thursday, June 9, 2011

the sinews and roots
intertwined - naked - gasping
tendrils of glass - raw

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

threadbare hope covers
the shadow, stretched thin and lean,
poverty worn socks

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

my love hides with rain
the shadows and the darkness
my soul splintered bare

Monday, June 6, 2011

particles and waves
the periodic table
with electron shells

Sunday, June 5, 2011

wandering footsteps
parched earth and naked flame
plastic detritus

Saturday, June 4, 2011

changing light and rain
a crisp packet full of pain
and stars recycled
the rhythms and waves
death and water flow, recycle
atoms into stars
tomorrow tumbles
down the calendar, like a
domino wave
The still pool of faith
evaporates in silence
like ether, like eyes
the dealers and thieves
musicians in the basement
bohemian knives
changing light and rain
the razor blades and sunshine
the clouds toboggan

Friday, June 3, 2011

the bricks I carry
to build a structure of ice
in the summer sun

Thursday, June 2, 2011

walking through the park
past alcoholics and dealers
sunbathers and kids

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

I splinter and break
ceramic security
brittle mind and heart
