grey saturday


grey saturday ( a rewrite of an older post )

building blocks & bric-à-brac

dripping drops & tit for tat

sleeping dogs & pavement cracks

frequency the t.v shat

radios & foamy shaves

curtains draped & baking cakes

cheesy toes & grating scrapes

lick the bowl as slumber wakes

muddy bikes & bubble baths

antennae & anoraks

compasses & o.s maps

sticky facts in pies & graphs

bits of gist & that-a-way

scribbled lists & saturn dazed

kiss-me-quick & giz a wave

cast away grey saturday


listesque etc.


listesque etc. ( a re-winging of an older post )

mutant bastard handshakes

every morn like bran flakes

fruit medjool me mandates

tooth your pick

storming nomad notepads

tossing forth the throwbacks

quartz, blue john & topaz

mined that shit

choppy hoppy scented

heaven sense fermented

pale ale wails infested

down it quick

singing kitchens sinking

flapping caps are thinking

keen green eyes are squinting

tick - tick - tick



whether report


whether report ( some sheet )

it might rain cats - perhaps by noon

throughout this isle where roses grow

or chimpanzees or kangaroos

beware that bounce - mind how you go

it could dogs before too soon

down on the streets, upon the roads

& wolves as well & foxes too

as winds join in & howl for show

it may rain frogs this afternoon

or snakes or newts or loads of toads

or cockatoos - the sky's a zoo

so be prepared - no 'expert' knows
