Thoughts

still thinking of airports
and hugs
talking till two dawns
walking the woods
standing on bridges

the essence of you
in places your spirit sang
and in the heart
it's never not there.

A life cycle of doubt

it methodically creeps
like a thief
stealing
that which is most precious
and dear

causing shadows
to quietly darken
faith to disintegrate,
crumbling away
pain becoming the rule
not the exception

calls of sanctuary,
muffled to an unheard
as a hard grasp
vicegrips
twisting

lungs burn
sparse air
that barely trickles
within a stagnant
vacuum

leaving nothing
but


unbreathable
battered
silence

Iím at Tamworth
or Lichfieldó
itís hard to tell
in the dark  
 
trees are scratches
against a navy sky;
pylons humming
with affairs
 
much like this train
 
bankers on laptops
checking emails  
in front of a man
in rip-off Adidas  
laughing at TikTok
 
the clash makes
me laugh as I sip
on my first tea
of the day.
 
Janet next to me
has already rolled
her eyes at the scent
of peppermint from
my cup
 
she rolls her hips too
to fill the double chair;
assert her dominance
in the carriage
 
Iím having none of it
 
press my pelvis
right back at her
feeble frame.
 
For a split second
I fantasise about
snapping her in two
 
but wet is slashing
down the windows
in middle-Earth  
as a Tannoy mentions  
something about Coventry
 
and I wonder  
if London will look
any sadder in
the rain.

(NoPoo 321) True Baptism


lover's true baptism
animalistic desire

a lone drop of him
to wet an opening bud
forever his rose

The train broke down  
before Birmingham  

I would too  

I donít know why  
the place exists †
filled with grey buildings  
and miserable people.  

Thereís more children  
heading North, most †
are asleep, curled up  
on jackets from †
threadbare Mums.  

Thought about †
a lot of things on  
the way home  
as I finished  
your book  

but nothing as much  
as perseverance †
in a world designed  
to crush a heart. †

I thought about both  
cantankerous bastards  
up there on their clouds  
looking down at blank pages  
wondering if I had it in me  
to publish in a world †
where they were not.  

Wherever you find yourself  
in this big, lonely world  
do not allow it to make  
you coldó  
do not allow yourself †
the failure of walking away  
from dreams and promises  
in the name of grief  

and I built a hut there;  
I know this now  

because I didnít want †
to let you go; I didnít want  
to swallow you into a belly  
like a nauseous song. †

Maybe thatís why  
I find myself loving people  
exactly where they are  
in this life †

not because I can †
but because belief †
is stronger than judgement  
on a planet fabricated †
with lies of what we are  
and who we should be.  

I closed your cover,  
sat back in the chair  
watching the sun leave  
thinking of us all †
as travelling things.  

Decided to finish †
what I started  

itís a long time  
to be dead.

when you read poems in your dreams


the next day
is spent.
spent
chasing them.

good luck
becomes a bitch

Eve

Nobody gave her  
credit for eating  
that apple  

they judged her  
as sinner, weak  
in feminine will  

now they call rebellion  
evil, when what it is  
is juicyó  

a great lie  
we should never †
believe ourselves  

delicious  
in its obvious  
deceit

i flipped a birdie to the rising sun

only to be returned the favour-
seeing the same
birdie's dark side.

A life saver of nostalgic resuscitation
___________________________________________________


Seeing .... now
from the birds nest
of hindsight,
how time
highlights - right
punctuating
reason
Is clean air
breathed in deep
lighter are these broken bones
burdens, lifted
freeing

gravity presses
... as it should
as it once didó
proper.

Color
rushes back
into a paleness
lived

as
life's
circulation


is restored
