Since you went away

Since you went away I’ve been coughing up A love that tastes Like spring I see you every year In bloom A crowd of yellow and gold A vast sea of daffodils Cupping the last of the suns light In your upturned petals I hear you in the Swallows sweet song Singing your soul out…

Bumble to my Bee

Honey Bee You fill my heart With your sticky stuff My love for you Renders me I’m sugar blind For your amber nectar Let it trickle Spurt and Spill Through my veins Till they are golden Honey Bee Your honeycomb skin And your hair golden In the light Give me more of your sweetness Lay…

Foreplay

He said baby come I’ll tell you my story in the language of my lust Whispered Against the soft fuzz of your ripe feminine fruit Watching As you listen Squirm and swell My firm words dancing In your beautiful hell Your passion pocket blushing Feverish crimson He said baby come Let the lick of my lines…

Surrender

Wake me from my year long night And kiss me like you’re the sun that bears down On my silvery skin till my naked body Reddens and blackens Till I whiten to a soft ash then Blow me across the shimmering sea of your love Like you’re a passionate wind Inhale an inch of my…

Le Petit Mort

Wandering from cold and lonely cities Like aimless pedestrians Leaving behind loveless palaces Toward the open bowels of page 3 towns Unbelievable women wait Like beggars in these darkened streets Swallowing money Like public telephones Refusing to connect a call Eyes like pocket sized mirrors Bodies screaming, Reckless Frenzied cravings to touch and be touched. Desire…

The Dumb and The Bored

Dumb and Bored. A deadly couple. Emerging from their tired adolescence As seasoned actors Fluent in superior ways Of concealing themselves. Both loosening the sweaty grip Of the other on reality Their beliefs illuminating landscape The same way a blindfold would. Dumb and Bored So big they’re obese Their blistered hands of ignorance Playing the…

Rewind The Film

Naked hands of nostalgia, Coil around my bare neck. Rewind the film. Turning back the pages of our book, Your gentle touches aroused me Like soft kisses to my brain. Rewind the film. Our night sky pregnant with possibility. Sparkling constellations of romantic ardour. Together. Me and you. Wedded in a cosmic blender. Rewind the…

Indiscretion

Thin pink lips contorted into a fat lie. Betrayal lingering on the thread of his breath. His mask slipping. Sorry. The confessions of his eyes wandering, Fastening me on the spot, sweating. Every fibre of my body shedding, Tears of my souls left overs. Flowing like water down a flushed toilet. Light behind my face, galloping away…

Lost

The months groaned by, shifting into years She wandered and she wandered Turning mad with the uselessness of her life No income Living cheaply Rounding up unfinished cigarette butts from abandoned ashtrays Her fingertips stained a grubby yellow Teeth so loose, her smile resembled the bars of a prison cell Her tongue the prisoner She…

Culture in the news.

Culture. A culture of racism. A culture of political correctness. A culture of bigotry. A culture of ignorance. A culture of police brutality. A culture of violence. A culture of sexual violence and rape against women. A culture of institutionalised child sex abuse. A culture of historic sexual abuse. A culture of Apathy. A culture…

Last Sip

His half drunk eyes His old-goat smile His breath a liquor infused stench His words composed like a drunken foreign language His jokes revealing his stupidity His conversation turning his once handsome face ugly His loneliness like the slow squeeze of a testicle From an ice cold hand His only friend: Melancholy His mask: Jovial His own…
