Making sense(s)
 
   
You touch me  
with your imperfections  
   
Reaching out  
with both hands  
to silently caress
away the pain   

Recognition
of shared air
interconnected
welcoming terrain
   
Closed eyes
palpable recall   
tasting  
of sweet decadence    
hinted of salty    
richness    
all consuming

Nourishment

Snapshots of time lost
tender meanderings
scouring clean
the decay of hurt
within my mind    
   
You pierce a veil  
a pin prick    
of secure light    
steals it's way    
through harsh darkness  
to shine upon    
it's newest home  
   
Illuminate me,    
with carefully
crafted
sensitivity
   
I'm fragile  
new to  
this delicate    
glowing  
light upon  
my face  
   
Potentially
angelic grace  
   
or    
   
How lucent duality
compounds    
   
My once blinded    
shadow'd  
existence  
newly bright,    
gleaming
whimsical essence
that surrounds  
   
You have stimulated  
a thought long gone    
olfactory  
reacted    
The very smell of you—   
incandescently drawn
   
Sweetest wildflower scents  
thrill my  
subconsciousness;  
Tendrils of my mind    
arouse    
memories reminisce  
   
Oh this overload  
to all the senses
   
   
you
leave me



defenseless

whenever you arrive

 



i don't ask
for a crowd
of facades

i pray
you arrive
stripped to
the bone.

Albion

I remember
walking the unblemished  
white beaches of Cannes  
a few summers ago
looking out at yachts  
and movie stars  
and money  
glinting their diamonds  
across Mediterranean surf.  
 
English beaches  
are never that way;  
they litter the sand  
with grey memories  
 
the deathly rattle  
of pirate bones  
haunting a shore  
as winds howl  
epitaphs only  
British ears hear.  
 
I visit them so often;  
pebble graveyards  
 
turning tombs slowly  
to discover dried kelp  
and sea glass littering  
plots with treasures  
 
searching for hag stones  
with a natural hole;  
proudly pocketing them  
as an act of devotion  
between my craft  
and I  
 
tying them  
to the front door  
back door  
bathroom light  
& bed  
 
because  
some nights  
I cannot sleep  
for thinking  
about them  
 
feeling the strange pull  
of stone by my head

haunted by centuries  
of unfathomable history  
boring through rock  
to make its mark  
 
and I swear  
when all is quiet  
I can hear the sound  
of the waves  
pulling me back  
to rock pools  
in the drift  
 
to craggy beaches  
and ghost ships
I know  
 
so greatly love.

                  shifting sands

faster than the waters
beneath the boat

sometimes noticed
when the body bounces
of the rocks
no time for
hard knocks

it's all sand

open wound
uncovered eye
it
gets in
when you mistake
life
for all starboard
and no port

capitate
often feels
it can hold and carry
whilst time shows
the opposite

no magic tricks
just shifting sands...

No I Without You

 
empty plates  
lay on a counter  
 
knife & fork
right-angled
 
90 degrees
of daily hate

The bitch of grudge holding- a senryú


When being better
is blinded by bitterness
there is no winner

how terrifying

 


to meet somebody,
reflecting your past intensities.

and the black houses leaned

 
I felt it brewing  

like a particularly  
sharp knife  
in the back  
of my brain.  
 
It arrived  
with its own aura  
 
the mood changed  
 
everything got lost  
in lack of sleep—
and I couldn’t  
sleep  
 
for the details  
of every flower  
I’d ever touched  
 
vibrant reds  
and yellows  
purples  
flashing  
and the  
sky was  
a bruise—  
 
I saw them on my skin  
flashing back to you  
 
flashing back  
to that.  
 
I lost it today;  
it was something  
trivial  
 
I’d forgotten  
to buy bacon  
for cauliflower cheese  
 
as I swallowed a lactose pill  
choked on dry rage  
cried over vegetables,  
hammered a potato peeler  
into a wooden chopping board  
 
while I felt it brewing  
 
I felt it brewing  
like a particularly  
sharp knife  
in the back  
of my brain  
 
and  
maybe  
 
I should  
have made  
soup.  
 
Soup  
fixes  
things.
