funeral for a dead name

 

in hebrew
it means

'god has
favoured me'

there
was nothing
holy
about
it

On keeping your friends close and your enemies closer

 

the audacity
that my enemies
think they deserve
as much as a chair
at my small table



thank you,
and goodnight.

on gardening and burials

the knob did
at some point
had the fingerprints
the damp composting soil
ensured they too
were recycled

the iron heads
matters not how hard
eventually rot out

the earth
always takes
it
back

i though
on the other hand
prefer burying
seeds

Ode to October

October comes
crashes of memories
fears and tears
on sodden diaries

remembrance
of closed doors
and broken whispers
pleas to deaf gods

mantras recited
on prayer beads
unheard inner screams
help me....

on to November
when Soul left
to surfed the skies
you know...
named for archangel
Gabriel
one might think
prayers would be heard

I live still
but when I resign my heart
to the stars
remember me as one
who loved well

as I do...always.

excerpt from a bipolar sufferer

 


i'd call
myself
a liar

if my
tongue
began to
say:

i swear
to the gods

my mind
has never
imagined

if peace
tasted the
same as
death.

Hermit Girl

The Glade plug in  
ran out earlier  
 
so I changed it
 
swore at  
the lack of bag  
in the kitchen bin
 
tried to cook dinner, but  
I’ve got a burn on my thumb
the size of a copper coin
and spent a whole spag-bol  
wincing weirdly above
a sauce splashed blister.
 
There are some days  
I enjoy domesticity
 
and other days  
the grind just  
wears me down    
 
like today
 
the cats smelling
of synthetic summer jasmine
after rubbing themselves
against a fresh scent refill
in the hall
 
and I’ve stuffed bills
behind the clock  
because I can’t be doing
with British Gas playing out
their paper estimations on
my purse strings.
 
Some days
I want to lock myself  
away from everything,
everybody  
 
live in a house  
with a chef
 
a maid—
 
let her
dust the price
off my time.

(NoPoo 325 ) I Ache

As i dream
Once more
Of your beauty
My soul
Does ache
All over again

I dare
To release fear
Open my ever
Battle scarred heart
To feel
Once more, love

The intimacy
I seek
Is in your eyes
And in your smile
I am bound
To them completely

So i expose
My very being
The gentleness
The kindness
I have hidden
I offer to yo

Verdurous


 
 
 
It's always been there
deep verdant fascination
where highland dreams...peak

Song of the Mockingbird

it's  
unequivocal  


where the past
left
it's deep  
traumatic  
scars
.  

.  

.  

.  

like neon
flashing—
highlighting  
a marquee  



advertising  


the pain.

Last of the great romantics

Ate a packet
of love hearts tonight
for the first time in years

was shocked to find
emojis printed on them now
where words once dwelled
 
their lacklustre eyes
blowing kisses,
oddly winking.

Even love
has had the soul
kicked out from under
its dying ass.


Can’t allow it.

I won’t.

she hungers for flames
burn sexual horizons
beyond all limits

wonderings of a sunset's intent


 
I adore  
these longer nights  
 
walking  
close to dusk
where hues have  
noticeably changed
pigments of fall maybe
watching the day
give way
as I weave west
directly into  
the sun's last throes  
thoughts heavy and full  
dissolve
along with the day  
exquisite colors
brandish to bedazzle
blistering perfection  
they turn me into
nature herself
I melt  
slowly withering  
into apricot skies
scorched amber embers  
flare to combust  
consuming all  
everything  
burnt orange  
ripens  
relinquishing  
to pinkish plum  
highlighting
bluebell  
 
where night  
teeters—
 
 
 
beckoning
