(NoPoo 244) Welcomed Inebriation...

from lips of passion ~ become
drunk on your kisses

I don’t want to come in from the rain

to be specific
   
the smell of English fern      
curling through      
ancient wood      
     
how rubber soles laugh;      
both descriptor      
and guardian of my skin      
     
half-walking      
half-swimming      
through plush green.      
     
I don’t want to lose her      
that young girl in the wild      
who delights in simple things      
     
but just for now
I might have to—
I’m so damp and cold,      
all my clothing is saturated      
     
reminding me      
that to drown is to be      
fully immersed in this life.

tapis

 
 
i gaze  
at your pale tapestry  
hanging;
breeze manipulating
into whirls
brushing against  
ripples,
aching  
to become
wrapped
up.

Thimble

I have a sky of thoughts
to drain out into oblivion
I have an ocean of hopes
to let go and bin

but I have a million excuses
to hold on
I cant let go
No, not yet

Sacred Throes

... and there,
flickering among dancing flames
is where
pure truth
begets infinitum

Transcending,
sacrificial flesh

Opening wide—
a third eye
peaked of existential throes

Are dreams realized

over
and
over


Birthed and baptized,
eternal.

somewhere in my head there are broken splints

 

because
there are things
that'll keep a man up
in the early
hours,
especially if they've resided
in palms
belonging to a
monster,
i just hope you
sleep
better than
i fail to
do.

(NoPoo 245) Tethered

the cords that bind her
are not what binds her to him
their eyes shine with love

The caravans are coming

 

There’s been
one of those
small minded
social media
group chats
after 50 travellers
moved onto the field

the locals type things
like “have you seen
those dogs”

and “why are
the children naked”


closely followed
by that old favourite

“they’ll leave
rubbish on the grass…
I know they will.”


Undeterred
by Karen the mouth,
I walked on down
this evening,
had a quick chat

asked a woman if
anything was needed,
and she looked relieved

as she told me
there was no
hot water for
the babies bottle

and I headed back
to the house, filled
a few flasks with warmth
so the kids could eat.

I’m not sure when
we became so distant
from ourselves

when humanity
left us

when all we can think about
is the state of a lawn
over droves of people
with nowhere to go

and if the last year
has taught us anything
about the world
it is this—

be kind

we’re all just
finding our way
in the dark.

(NoPoo 246) Classy Shite

under quiet moonlight
mischevious spirits conspire
to ignite a wildfire
that will burn with touch
like fireflies glowimg

auras rise
pheonix tries penetrating heaven
bringing forth ancient dances
sacred secret knowledge
felt between intimate souls

a speck

Despair carves it's name
of fathomless darkness
pressing down—
Oh, how it can press

Despondency
spreads like infection
contaminating, a mind
leaving charred thoughts in it's wake

A trail of poisoned tears
bubbles and burns
scarring, deep
where once sparkled of pure stardust

Marks of a black reminder,
the enormity of pain and suffering
or "that which does not kill"
how it sometimes strengthens
a colossal aching

Tearing it all down
to nothing
but ashy bits of bone and sinew
yet leaving just enough

to resurrect
that tiny flicker






called hope

ebony and ivory

   
  
   
black satin    
petals    
yearn to cascade    
into waves—    
       proclaiming    
            home    
      by carving    
        themselves    
          into  
corroding  
rocks.

of wooden hearts

 
I always
thought of you  
as a tree  
 
deep-rooted  
   bark-strong  
 
but I’ve realised  
you aren’t at all  
 
you’re the leaf  
angle-poised  
in the dark  
 
and winter will  
be here soon—
 
 
I, my dear
am terrified.

Living amongst split seconds~ (the plethora of random but consequential, lightning-like, life changing circumstances)

From multitudes
of abstract moments
where eyeblinks
become sole reason
belief in purpose perpetuates
like a long cleansing inhale/exhale
that satiates we wandering aimless souls

stringing together
our singular instances
allowing joy to spill over the brim
making true believers
or softening a hardened weary

smoothing severity in rough edges
suffusing opportunities
nanosecond by nanosecond
a balm of time
that captures poignancy

reflecting it back,
amped—
tenderizing that toughest part
with jaw drops
random speechlessness


and bated breath

with
every.
single.
heartbeat.
