One by one with slow deletion
All facets and dimensions destroyed
Lofty praise frazzling creative cortexes
Those who praise become the hunted
The shadows whisper whereabouts
The crypts of stories untold piled high
Chain smoking page sneerer scores another
There will be no laughter or...
Starboard, bow-perched on seaward vessel,
fixated: motions of rocking waves.
The familiar shock-chilled salt spray sting,
scents in liquid crushed shells,
glasswater and life.
Fingers clasped to air...
This is the chanced threat of falling from cliffs
that I live...
May i sit at your caves
claw tips cloudward
toes buried in your
You need not move,
from bending thorns,
nor walk the road
to find me
for it's your land i adore;
the beckons of wood moonlight
bergamoted in dusk,
the trace of pawprints
It didn’t come at dawn, it never has. This style of sky has always blossomed midday, or peaked on the break tides of sunset.
Because of that I’ve never witnessed the actual miracle of its birth, catching it minutes or hours after it stenciled itself on the
clouds. I’d like to believe we...
in some field where i love and kill,
i bury my hands in dirt.
there is nothing to say but so much to feel.
the sunflowers lower their holyheavy heads
with me, in pretty mimicry.

and crows [believe now]

He tipped me his tailored tongue
gratified my mind with eloquent faltering
the street light charmed his frame
and dusted my eyes with warmth
his vantage point lulled my prudence
I imagined he could pull me inside out
with those extravagant fingers
his aura 'vintage and...
blue lips spun from broken trinkets fallen upon the last piece of solid ground
the web detached itself from her brittle limbs, mind, porcelain existence
eyelashes sleeping in forever dreams where she escapes the torment that chased
and when the bells chime on the night breeze, I know she will...
you cannot stretch her skin across the Universe
in the hope that you can bruise her with your restless lips
it's too late now the destruction in your gut has twisted
you are your own war and she is too far removed from the battle.
my war is quiet, more often these days...
he was just a glimpse in her slightly tainted view
her pill box begged for release and she shoved it deeper
she wants a mountain top romance without the fucked up rules
that make her close down every cell wanting to reach out, to him
if she could put herself under his skin without feeling...
they say the earth heals.
but this is only for the beloved.
i, in this gravel bed with raining hair; let me sleep.
if i am so awful, allow me one equinox
and send the dark to hush me.
days and nights and cryings are no longer sacred.
they are burdens they are lepers...
i birth another fragmented creation
into the pith of a pomegranate
& seal its stasis with seminal fluid.
sepia seeds & your leavings bloom
from my marrow, sprouting vine & leaf
that never bear fruit
you filled the eyeless face
with millstones & milliseconds
& flyaway shards...
New day prayer,
one chair, scripture
with her daily bread,
divine in the
false light Father,
named god where
only she can hear.
All she knows of

no signal from...
leave me to pick at your wings
where sabbaticals mere profit upon re-entry
& in the mean.est time I gather my crayons to
coat this room in the blood of gemini
..such a reckless gravity
of balance and braille that gave birth to june
while murdering the messenger....
confused of which

shadow hiding nothing,
born of that...
My blank page
Let's start again
Green and red
And black, black, black

Valentine's can fuck itself
Tuesdays are murder
I'd kill for a drink
A fairytale on terminal...
The Consequence of Nod
The neighborhood's alive
side glances and bipolar sighs,
waves on separate oceans made of sails
coloured hair and close lapels,
pennies on the concrete
kicked together then away
never quite produce a flame,
you are a slow moving pendulum
caught-up in my hindsight
a web tangled misconception
wrapped around the stem cells
of every illusion I never want to let go of
a dream weaver, fighting my nightmares
the seconds falling into dust
an air spirit between my ribs
all wings and nervous energy
a shape(less) soul stutters under flesh and bone
the day is breaking apart
long before, the night crushes it, black and blue
thunder clouds, pressed in bible pages
from childhood schools that raped innocent minds
the wretch secretly hiding...
“That's where I'll be,
Since you left me,
My tears could melt the snow” - Mud, “Lonely This Christmas”
The dream ended in a dark and shabby hotel room,
Above a void of ceiling fan and grime.
It was Benidorm, 1985, back when you could still smoke
In the rooms without staff...
