smashing

smashing ( some poetry sheet stuff sheet poem )




as fathead hemlock sparrows whales

& cottage combat jigsaws snails

as bootleg chieftains swarm the sprite

& twenty werewolves probe the dales


as blistered gypsies bumper balls

& vacant hipbones portal walls

as hittite hopscotch flops the night

& heatstroke beeswax warps the sprawl


as killjoy gymnasts blunt the quail

& northern pinwheels stump the ale

as hellfire hunchbacks guild the kite

& sacred crayons rib the gale


as shotgun whitsuns goat the scrawl

& potluck penguins coat the shawl

as freckled foghorns frog the blight

i sit & watch - absorb it all

broccoli & mortal sins

broccoli & mortal sins ( a 20 second read of poem )



broccoli & mortal sins

portals call as portents spin

pheasants strut as red deer rut

kiss a wish then let's begin


soothsayers & dorsal fins

toxic waste & safety pins

wild bees putt as golfers sup

conjoined twins stroke double chins


farriers & haunted inns

troubled pubs & sheepish skins

badgers tut at monkey nuts

puffins swoon in loony bins


dangled limbs & water wings

piffle sings - assorted things

brim my cup when bogged or stuck

crackin' up or crackin' in


( ? )


fuck knows

absent dawn

~

absent dawn ( some rhymes for sunday etc. )




the sky was green - the sheep were clouds

the owls were air in hot balloons

the hens were clucked - the wren was loud

the goldfinch licked the silver spoon


the sun was pun - the land was sway

the badgers bastard out the tunes

the hedges edged - the horsefly neighed

at oafish newts with attitude


the bleak was well - the rooks smoked crows

the polecats pranced in pantaloons

the snails were whales - the lanes were toads

& nice 1 cried the riping moon


the hills weren't ill - the deer were fawn

the mood was baboons on bassoons

but where were you? oh, absent dawn

you missed a cracking afternoon

scarz ‘n’ tales

scarz ‘n’ talez ( a poem )


the brambles ripped off bits of skin

the nettles stang my snow-pale knees

the blackthorn left its wicked mark

the wasps kicked off then came the bees


the pollen rushed right up my nose

above my head - a buzzard soared

then duly shat upon my hat

the sun did blear - my eyes are sore


the ravens crowed a blackish din

& sappy wept the woodland trees

the hemlock rashed - things could be worse

i'm more odd socks than socrates


the goose grass stuck to sweaty clothes

the ants attacked as hornets swarmed

still breathing though - yeah, all's so so

it's summertime - it's war outdoors

blue bewail song

~

blue bewail song ( squint & it’s a bastard tapestry )




your hamster's toast, your ghost has flown

your weasel's popped, your lemon's sucked

your badger's burst, your adder's cursed

your band has split, your chicken's clucked


your orchard's dust, your monkey's nuts

your whistle's drowned, your bile is duct

your owl has howled, your vole is hole

your robin's hood, your friar's tucked


your horse is norse, your pasta's past

your art is arse, your car is trucked

your wings have flapped, your ring has shat

your peas are mush, your strings are plucked


your cousin's fine, your well is dry

your goose is moose, your quack has ducked

your heaven's bread, your slugs have fled

it's just your luck - ha ha - you're fucked
