Creative Coping


Fatal Reflection

Round and round it swings

With centrifucal force,

The cycle of pain and self torment, the

Frustration of procrastination

Why not do it today?

Cant! Wont?

Loud the pound, Narcissus

Streaming round the brain,

Pumping full the eardrums

With the sound of sheer

Doom

Boom, it goes, again.

 

Forget the sun, what

You had won through

Ernest Toil.

The boil on your leg is the

Clumsy spy, whose

Yellow fuss gives away

Conspiracies beneath;

Self sabotage.

Patient no longer

lips warm, feet warm

Hands soft and sentient.

Gone is the rumble and

The heart ache within,

here is Life soft and sweet

And ready to eat whole,

Nothing to peel off

or hack through.

 

Eyes whole, heart WHOLE,

Life long and waiting:

Where have you been?

i’ve been expecting you all this time.’

 

‘What have you planned for me?’

 

‘Plan? You’ll see- Be kind

To yourself as you find your way, make it easy and slow, as befits a guest,

Remember, I am Life, your host,

From this life to the next.

List your objectives,

One two three.

Tick them all, perhaps.

But branches grow from

nodes unseen, wrought in

Secret, deep within the trunk;

Roots find water and,

Without reflection on Luck

Or Risk, drink deep, sending

High and varied growth

To greet wind and find sun



Cuttings

To worry is to predict shoots

On a sapling

No tree can be planned,

No sprout withdrawn,

Only cropped.

A hot expanse swells below

This cafe floor, my Earth.

Above, if i picture it,

A bulb of light so large it might include a tree-

Between, am I, small and sitting-

Straight, I think, ready channel but feeble

Conductor.

 Let Life Force strike light

Through a balding head

Into my woken soul.



Domino Days

The days ahead seem far

Off, even the one tomorrow,

What state will be then and

The states between

Are unknowables-

To what extent can I steer

These fates,

Extend my will into the Ether

That immediately surrounds these

Hours, stacked up, a

Queue of dominos?



Pain’s Sweet Tooth

Back in this place again

This place of doom and gloom

Bloated stomach passing for womb

Once i was well and pain

Was something felt from a

Prick of thorn or cut of steel

Not as now when it grows

From a live seed

Planted deep, sown down

In furrows, virulent its saplings writhe

For supremacy, squealing for

Sugar and coffee and tea

Cake and wine and syrup and cream,

Drops will not do, bring

Buckets for bowls, Life must

Be strained and stretched to

Feed Pain’s sweet tooth.
