I wanted to commemorate
the day I knew you'd left for places unknown
yesterday
but I sang in my head instead
to keep out the mists
from my eyes

On Judging

 
So I entered this tool shop
right past the checkout kid
who looks like he listens
to bad emo on a weekend
and his Mum drives him
to work everyday
to make sure he attends.

I walk up the aisle
looking for a whetstone;
Iíd just about worn
my last one out

my penknife was blunt
after surviving a winter
of cutting evergreens
for Yule, and catching
the end of Autumn
where elderflower folded
& rosehips sunk into snow.

There was a man in the aisle
with a company name badge

I asked
if he had the stone in
1000/6000 grit;
he laughed and asked me
if Iím about to kill
my Husband.

Part of me
wanted to say yes
in the spirit of weirdness
and watch chaos ensueó

the shop suddenly filling
with policemen, a swat team
entering with riot shields
and tasers

and I use my frankly
inadequate whetstone
as a weapon, the cops
raining down wrath
in handcuffs
and confessions.

I didnít say yes.

I laughed, saying noó
my penknife was blunt
and I didnít want to dull
my hunting knife
for skinning rabbits
cutting into wood
and green.

Same goddamn
look in his eyes.

It made me question
which deaths were acceptable
to a man who sells ironware
for a living

who employs a guy
chained 8 hours a day
to a till register
looking for fucks to give.

Iím still
not sure who
judged who
the most.

Itís puzzling me
even now.

A Goblet of Bitter

as I sip of this
an honour bound trust
words nonsensical to most ears
un-admired frayed ends of old canvas
drawn on, painted and repainted
nothing new here
nothing to see
nothing to write home about
just mere words spouted out
their meaning known to no one
as no one am I

Cup Of Gin, Bombay
An old broken poet, with a hunger in his eyes  
for the darkening clouds coming his way
with pen and ink, he whittled a thirst
for a cup of gin, Bombay  

The gin was bitter, it burned his tongue  
but the swill made his mind full of song
and with a well of ink, he flung a verse  
for a cup of gin, Bombay  

Rolling dice in a fast lane called life  
he wrote it dark into the night
of mimes in twilight  
for a cup of gin, Bombay

I am very proud of this piece.  People often ask what is your favorite piece; though this may not be a favorite piece, I would consider a piece I highly regard.

Dominant Feeling (NoPoo 108)

its stalking the night
menacing heavy breathing
this fear has sharp teeth

Three Stops And Home

I.
 
youíll find
I havenít addressed
sickness that burns
this throat every time
I think of fire
 
all consuming;
all determined
in this universe  
where we never  
say die
 
II.
 
broke my foot
years ago  
 
jumped off a slide  
into the arms  
of somebody  
who shouted
ďtrust meĒ
 
you must understand  
the predicament
Iím in  
 
III.
 
an abyss could never
contain either of you
worn down beef shins
 
you closed doors
wrote about them,
opened another
 
much like life,
really.

after a bout of self indulgence and the emotional highs

it's a lonely place.

thoughts
about old coffee cups
grimed with forgotten dregs
saucers left with unwashed spoons
note book opened on last scribbles
fading ink
silenced breath
...dust in my eyes

mind's eye


to steal that gaze
holding
reflected back
the sands do stall
a moment seized
seared into

forever.

Woo-hoo 🎉 🎉 🎉
Congrats Colin!
It's so exciting and you're not glowing in the dark or anything... just able to be followed at will by your government or mind controlled (which ever conspiracy theory floats your boat!!) heh heh 😜
Seriously, I'm SO relieved for you!
🌹 💜 🌹

pulled from the darkness
a heart swells with thankful pride
to pay it forward
