Hear the thud, thud of my heart ,beat,

With the pitter patter of night rain

Racing through thin air

Soaking the summer soil

Chasing my blood to feed

My ribs’ teaming cargo .

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.

Hope fits nicely into Today.

Yesterday was small,

An awkward size, to small to

Hold an egg-

It held salt, as much as filled it, instead.

Hope fits today,

Fills it full, pills

Throb through veins,

Skin drinks up the breeze,

Food floats light and

Sense is song



5 Second Romance

Pulsing frame cool against

My hot cheeks burning through

Finger cage of cupped hands.

Fringe spilling over hands held

High to keep out awkward offered affection.

Fringe gaping to expose the shame of

An exaggerated forehead.

With mis-placed hairs in mind

Hot cheeks singe and

The current is fused.

Now, Mascara’s tracks are blurred to bruises

And smiles flake the face,

Like butter too cold for bread.

Happy day started at night for me,

Whether from pills or injections

Or Prunes and live yoghurt

Makes some difference,

But not too much.

Am I in control or merely

A passenger in a rusty car

Fuelled by pharmaceutic diesel

And in need of repair and care?

 

Bathe me in water and leave me

To dry in the sun.

Take me in before I fry but

keep me somewhere cool and clear

Where static glare is fenced

Out and love relit.
