queen anne’s lace

queen anne’s lace  (  a  p o e t r y )




white in the lea's pit

a beacon of soap


handkerchiefs, nighties

a wedding or rope


hangs as a basket

a bastard or bat


lives with the lizard

the serpent & rat


sneezes in woodland

or patches of grass


flecks as a phantom

of feathers & gas


whiskers in whispers

& up with the lark


wild like a carrot

but blind in the dark

...

in mirrorlands  (  m y  o t h e r  p o e m  i s  a  m o u n t a i n  h a r e  )



sing a song of cell division

custard cans & campervans

aerial's on television

caliban's in kazakhstan


feather flocks a flockin' vision

ticker tapes & ticket trams

paper trains on plains of fission

bedding spreads in badger-lands


roses row as rivers glisten

adder skies & ladder lands

miners of the coalition

whispers of the midden-hands


muffle in the scuffle-schism

marbles, mars & marching bands

mumble-stuff of contra's diction

sinking swans on singing sands


weavers on an intermission

tapestries & telegrams

ariadne tickles titian

pencils pen in pentagrams


blizzard of the lizards, listen

wizardry & squinterlands

shepherds sleep as lemons glisten

mizzle gleams in mirrorlands

...

mist a parcel

sunken onions

as the marbles

shit the sack


larks are singing

as the village

chitter-chatters

spinning cack?


wraiths are fading

fuzz & phantoms

as the buzzard

bats a flap?


glisten in the

whistle's bristles

on a hillock's

tractor track

sreknaw  (  m e o p  e l t t i l  a  )





pen you peel like sieving sup

& light is lark & limb

hen you've hacksaw squill of squall

& sapless hills to brim

life is butter bumblebee

a jungle up a tree

pebble as a pox of bogs

& leck knot them punts swim

...

dinner guests  (  a  p o e t r y  o f  l i s t )





nag hammadi barmy army

flight lieutenant lupin-juicer

uncle sun & sister cistern

orangeries & orreries


pixelated pixie people

coven-gloving morris dancers

badger barks & antlered aunties

finches of the woodland winch


terrapins on terra firma

myrtle in the mizzle's murmur

unicorns on horns & vocals

trojans of the water horse


saturn's golden lab-retriever

jumbled june in measle-sneezes

ninja nymphs & squawking goshawks

judas keith iscariot

wet june afternoon ado  (  a  p o e m  )



crackle static campervans

cottages in cotton socks

caravans & ampersands

splatter on the avenue


nibble crumbs of sunken sun

otter on as puddles pond

fingers thumb & thunder drums

dusters dust but hoovers spew


simmer spanner sandwiches

bric-a-brac as building bricks

lixard tongues & languages

singing songs of xanadu


television comatose

quizzes fizz as kitchens sink

dishes fish & rivers row

breezes sneeze a big achoo


pluck a feather, weather clogs

moses gloats as noah floats

lemons suck & heavens frog

dropping dogs from katmandu


interregnum rafter-flaps

phantoms spool in ghoul-cagoules

bladders, naps & ballad scraps

wet june afternoon ado
