Dusk: a blade of honey between our shadows, draining.

From Ocean Vuong’s ‘On Earth We Are Briefly Gorgeous‘.


sun snorts the snorkel


sun snorts the snorkel  (  s o m e  r h y m e s  )

mist whips the vicar & tryst jams the jangles

rip quips the river & flip flops the flow

egg kegs the kestrel & leg spans the dangles

wing sings the wizard & boat shows the row

land licks the sailor & mop moths the candles

handstands the baker & feet knead the dough

bread bins the tinker & flap cracks the scrambles

tank tops the bottle & grass greens the mow

spleen spins the weaver & clean sweeps the vandal

sea saws the beaver & pin pricks the sew

on swans the plodder & song whales the rambles

ale froths the fodder & drip drops the toe

brick shits the builder & tear snares the brambles

quick sands the gilder & cage caves the crow

pen inks the portal & sword swish the sandals

sun snorts the snorkel & spun spores the glow



ooh aar


ooh  aar  (  a  p o e m  )

calf a hound of fluttery flights

calf a hound of needle

stacks the hay - the honey sews ground

crop crows the eagle




From sermons
Else’s over random radio volume mist, unhappy films in weary
earlier echoes pollution, More threatened static
I honour spirits, kill factory worry… 17 more words

I’m not usually a mourning person

but tomorrow I’ll make an exception.

Like the film Inception

you made no sense to my rose bud mind… 349 more words


Pinocchio - Early Edition


Awake; like empty waves of trains in the bleary morning rush | the daily commute of metal wheeled coffins; tightly grasped by pall bearers—conductors | engineers who seek the high road to Mecca, America’s Freedom Tower; and points South | the Metro sinks to the depth of the burgeoning skyline; traces ghost lines of antiquity | to hug the rails of a fat dollar bill and a hungry New York Daily News. 238 more words

An Imaginary Embrace

You lie against me like

the ocean on the seabed.

Creatures swim between us

out for blood,

but as I hold your head

I realise they need us… 7 more words
