Domestic - For the small but perfectly formed Comp

Glasgow is all guns, knives  
Lots of battered wives  
Friday night the rain will flood  
Washing away streets of blood

Dim Hope

Is it wrong to believe
That all will be well
When darkness seems to be
The only light I see.

Behind a stuck zipper

I've uncovered letters.

Her last written words are mine.

"You are a ray of sunshine".

It doesn't make things better.

Joy Of Pain

The joys of life,
Seems to rush on by
It's only the pains,
That truly want to hang around awhile

Warring For Love

We warred, we declared a treaty
We kissed afterwards
We made love looking in to each other's eyes
We love

Posi-plus

Tainted was the ground
That I was buried in
But negative times a negative
Equals a positive, I Is Me

birthing eyes never lie

 
 
 
^^ancestry of an eye^^
 
mom's  
home-made kohl  
in steely-bellied antique  
peacockish clutch  
 
-bleeds her girl
 
lashing lachrymal blades  
of untinkering truth  
 
beatifies blinkless  
melancholy  
 
 
 
#^ smell of lies ^#
 
caustic  
caffeinated brews  
 
trickles chronic   -infuses  
a ballerina in disguise
 
cadaveric greys mildly  
coalesce  
 
daily runs high .  the deathless  
deaths  
 
 
 
 
;;// uprooted templates ;;\\
 
 
clinical fisting, diagnoses  
"nascence"
 
simply scribbles pills for a day  
 
just when the tomorrows  
forever have become
purely unholy fridays

Carried



here is
    your
    handle,
love
and shoulder strap—
for
some things are not
      “worked through”
or “accepted”
   —they are carried.

boy with the best smile

we all wore long sleeves to work
but this humid heatwave, the weight of it
sweltering

he’s still wearing them

Nobody Knows

Pain is my only pleasure.
Releasing frustration.
Mutilation, sensation.
They, the voices , tell me keep quiet.
My mind I want obliterated.

TRENDINGS

If bestiality came into vogue –
They be seen at all the right parties
With all the right animals
De’furred
#Available

Note. If # counts as 1 word, please delete ‘be’ from second line.

TRAVELLING LIGHT

As winter veins peel
Autumn heat from sky
Jet streams trail as Christmas lights
Towering inferno blisters Indian Ocean.
Satellites.

DRUNK & FLIRTING AT THE MANNEQUIN BAR

Alarm cock rings
Half past erect.
Who is this in his bed?
He turns her over…..
Plastic head falls off.

I Hear The Rebel Yells

I remember where I came from,
Sons and daughters of the pioneers.
Old ghosts sing out, they’re rising up again!

I love this, Jade! Almost reads like a super-sized haiku.

cos i usually starfish

looks like hopeless
to sleep
lips barely a breath apart
and each limb of yours
tentacled in one of mine
