From the big man's mouth
In a pub down south
Gold, frankincense, myrrh.
Spirited in liminal time.
The burlesque dancer with a schruti box
Releases a contagion.
We are all infected with an
Salty iced caramel beads
Swirls on my tongue.
Need Zero: Desire One
Light and shade: elemental truths.
Bricks and mortar: essential binds.
Nature and nurture: eternal
Ringtones, the peel of a new age.
Tweets and posts, the new gauge.
Augusta Zadow squeals with
The quintet dissected the week fuelled by hops, bubbles and tweets.
Governance driven discourse,
Not slip ups
Slide into the ballot box.
Custodian of democracy sits still in the
Snap, crackle, pop
In a bowl rimmed in blue.
Knees, hips and back
Make these sounds anew.
Festival 14: abundant delights,
Blessing and caressing me,
Night after night.
Shafts of light in the early evening sky
Sculpting questions: How, when and why.
Dabbling in digital deeds
Fingers tapping feeding insatiable needs
For upworthy shareable leads
Flamingo coloured fingers, the day dawns
Rubbing my eyes, then a few yawns
Good morning gratitude.
No such thing as an ugly harpist
Angels audition them not John the Baptist.
Racing to get home on an ordinary day
Just cost me almost one week's pay
Accident free zone a
Pitching to pernicious publishers,
Synoptic sentences stored.
Rejection letters anticipated
Judgments are made about the company you keep
The prince once a toad may still be a creep
Dinosaur days are coming to an end
Decide and defend.
Collaborate, collaborate is where
If bigotry is a right
Then what is the responsibility?
I want to be able to sleep at night
Bumps and grunts and aches and pains,
Inspection, injections and ligament strains.
Aren't rules meant to be broken?
And some words to remain unspoken?
Mulberry bush moments.
Too many good-byes
Morale new low
Tied with ribbons and bows.
Summer's slip is showing
As the sun sets on the southern ocean
Her flirtatious pastel pinks and
Checking last details like insurance
May seem a bit of a nuisance
But essential for
Dose of dyslexia haunts me today.
Wrong date to my utter dismay!
Case built, I need a holiday.
Scallywags on the line steal copper and my time.
Driver antidote humour soothes this frustrated
Figures in violent isolation may cause conclusion jumping;
Or perhaps a violation embarrassingly
Crisp and clean, yet still unseen,
Is the duopoly of power.
Before too long it will go badly
Biennale beauty and a few beasts,
Harbour horizon a certain feast.
Cockatoo Islands sights and
Thud, stomp, broken bottle.
Cough, rustle, sliding tyres.
Buzz, flushing water, drip,
A final decade of Hail Mary's
With a Sikh mantra chaser
And a Celtic blessing on the
A bunch of bananas rests there at night
Lessons all day on a rice and cabbage diet
With stealth precision
The bomber finds the repellant free zone
Executing a stinging
Threat of rain maybe days away
Mariah's breath is hot and slow
Beads of sweat add to golden
Golden orb descends
Arise Your Royal Eveningness
We bow to receive your breeze blessings
Putt putt chariot.
Swish, swirl and sway.
All part of New Year's
Hoses, buckets, water pistols
Precision unnecessary for laughter
Second flat tyre a party
Tetrad of tangos
Earth, moon and sun
Trio of dancers
Eclipse number one.
A generation of dreams and schemes on this flight
Greeted by thunder and rain as we alight
Patchouli infused scarf of silk,
Nurturing me like mother's milk.
Hands too cold.
Poet’s premature ejaculation
