the tilt of the world
driving the seasons, the wheel
and rhythms of light

Sunday, October 30, 2011

halloween parade,
costumes and dark fantasies,
rotting flesh make-up

Saturday, October 29, 2011

rigid shapes, like ice
captured frozen pattern of
falling water - snap

Friday, October 28, 2011

the brain's delicate balance,

Thursday, October 27, 2011

I don't remember,
the ingredients are wrong,
counteract the salt

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

information dose,
throw it into the silence,
people recoil - dark

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

the herbs and garlic,
casserole slowly cooking,
a glass of red wine

Monday, October 24, 2011

ginger cake and cream,
coffee and a cat asleep,
afternoon slips by

Sunday, October 23, 2011

a countryside walk -
drifting through the scenery,
ambling with friends

Saturday, October 22, 2011

the piano keys -
the white walls and a black cat -
waterfall music

Friday, October 21, 2011

with a little fear
a wisdom tooth extraction -
human ivory

Thursday, October 20, 2011

drink when I get in,
a couple of vodka shots,
and supper cooking

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

taut like a bow string,
put the pebbles in my mouth,
throwing lit matches

Tuesday, October 18, 2011


the silence folded,
the teeth which rip the fruit's flesh,
the smell of clean sheets

Monday, October 17, 2011

I don't know the way,
I don't have the heart to fight,
I walk straight ahead
falling like raindrops,
leaf buffeted by the wind,
I'm at your mercy

Sunday, October 16, 2011

walking on the sand
the wind swirls and I am blind

Saturday, October 15, 2011

clean my eyelashes
and groom my eyebrows - my eyes
surrender silence

Friday, October 14, 2011

my life is empty
a lonely sea of nothing
stretches out in front

Thursday, October 13, 2011

suicide and fear
haunt my waking mind today
to escape - to fly

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

when the door opens,
slip outside and run in light,
let it embrace you

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

silk and the twilight
of morning's slow increase
transitions - melting

Monday, October 10, 2011

exam aftermath
leave the autopsy alone
and on to the next

Sunday, October 9, 2011

tumbling downhill
jangles in my head - zombie
stagger stepping stones

Saturday, October 8, 2011

psychosis babble
the jibber jabber jagged
warps and wefts drumming
pineapple wineglass
vinegar gingerbread man
soil and dancing ants
to bath in sunlight
the warm blanket of floating
azure skies and breath

Friday, October 7, 2011

venom scratches puss
oozes maggots and flies - fear
razor blades my soul

Thursday, October 6, 2011

the doubts I had - wash
and recombine to form ink
puddle bounced light
drag me over sand
I am an exile from peace
the landscape bleeds wire
geometric shapes
the tide pool left by the dreams
we remember - caves
to melt the poison
that leaks from my eyes - acid
rain burns electrons

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

buddleja and drums
the beating rain - moss and ferns -
dripping foliage

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

the dragons - the sharks -
the nargles and the demons -
stealing sanity

Monday, October 3, 2011

apples - strawberries
sunlight and water - the earth
made flesh to nourish

Sunday, October 2, 2011

the structures we build
coral - the bones of the dead
a surface of now

Saturday, October 1, 2011

the watermill turns
the grinding stone adding grit
to the flour - bread and life
my daily ritual
carved into the water
of photons and shells
