teeters in the treehouse

teeters in the treehouse  (  a  p o e m  f o r  w e d n e s d a y ‘ s  a n k l e s  )




peepers shawl the seesaw

letters sprawl the espouse

lepers scare the seashore

weasels in the warehouse


hokey pokes the jigsaw

cokey gropes the in-outs

ropy rides the rickshaw

lizards in the lighthouse


colliers bowl the coleslaw

waltzes sway the j. strauss

pipers pipe the what-for

tigers in the doghouse


buggers beg the bedstraw

portals yawn the dormouse

beavers bee the buzzsaw

dawdles in the courthouse


spindles spin the folklore

thimbles thumb the head louse

gargles sing the barn door

marbles in the farmhouse


hoofers clove the cold sore

roofers speck the red grouse

sneezes seize the centaur

breezes in the schoolhouse


ruffles rile the wild boar

brussels spouts the green sprouts

dowsers doubt the outlaws

weevils in the greenhouse


nozzles spray the eyesore

wobbles sway the tea spouts

piffle whiffs the encore

teeters in the treehouse

batten down them hatches

batten down them hatches  (  a n o t h e r  p o e m  t h i n g  )





cracking shots & glasses

flopping flops & gashes

fizzles in the hush-up

riddles in the mashes


spitting dust & ashes

pissing gusts & patches

whistles on the brushed scrub

panic in the masses


rubbing sticks & matches

sticking locks & latches

chuckles in the dead duck

staggers in the stashes


lapping lads & lasses

skipping bricks & scratches

witters in the headfuck

swivels on the axis


dotting eyes & dashes

inking blots & splashes

bastards in a bathtub

muddles in the mashes


lightning fright & flashes

smashing clouds & clashes

singing songs of tea cups

batten down them hatches

...















































gloam sweet gloam

gloam sweet gloam  (  a  p o e m  f o r  s u n d a y  e t  a l  . . .  )




jumbles jump the mumble

jungles jinx the jingle

nutters span the attic

witches in the grindle


dashes slap the stumbles

clashes tap the cymbals

crackles whip the static

squirrels in the dingle


apples pip the crumbles

grapples swine the swindle

manic pipes the magic

bristles in the brindle


fondles feel the fumble

tonsils speak the lingual

woven weaves the fabric

spoken rungs the spindle


stomachs tum the rumble

thunder thumbs the thimble

warbles fright the rabbits

dawdles sprite the nimble


adders snake the rundle

ladders shake the twinkle

haddock hicks the habit

havoc spits the simple


draymans toast the trundle

ravens crow the wrinkles

roses sniff the plastic

noses whiff the dimples


petals fluff the fungal

pebbles rough the shingle

staggers trawl the traffic

stutters stall the dwindle

docket pockets  (  a  f u c k i n ‘  p o e m  f o r  s a t u r d a y  )





spindle twinkle little toes

winter whittled mistletoe

sputtered warring lion roars

silence, laws & cicero


bumbled jumble bungalows

stumble tumble undertows

snorkel snorting smorgasbords

volant ewes & u.f.o's


burble gurgle garden hose

parcel gargle marble flows

sodden amble troubadours

tosser tools & hammer throws


dawdle chortle jumble prose

portal mortal juxtapose

ripple rifle dinosaurs

butterflies & dominoes
