Gloster Javelin
A massive delta wing machine
Big heavy fighter going after Soviet bombers
Hunting them over the North Sea
Armed with big guns and heat seeking missiles
Ready to splash the enemy communist planes
Before they can drop or launch their nuclear weapons

The hoarfrost bites the tender limbs, with hard snow on the ground
The water surface mirror like, in the forest there's no sound
The footbridge wear a coat of ice, flashing in the sun
Awaits steam blowing joggers, out on their morning run

What Party Are You?

Huh?
Does it matter?
Who I voted for? 
I am alive, 
so it was legal. 
I have not been dead, 
for thirty years. 
Surely that is enough. 

If I tell you this or that, 
you will condemn me

Keep Your Laws Off My Body
You march calling for taxes on
things that you think we should not eat,

and above all tax the meat!
We point out that you have no right,

utterly convinced that we

The sparrows and cardinals
squabble -
hedgerow turf wars.
Sudden low evening rain.
Do the trees weep, or does the sky?
Anger seeps into drywalls
fills eyes with a restless acrimony. 

Yesterday the sun was a brightness
on the wrists of small boys.
They played out a violent...Read More

Turtle by the Door


The bears and wolves are few;
one threadbare widow mourning,
two grays as consumptive as smoke.
The large dwindle,
their bodies grow more awkward,
more at odds.
The heavier beasts sway
like drunks in the scant woods.
Under a pelting dark they come.
Beneath a stabbing...Read More

Take me back
We'd wash it down with a bottle of pop, that fizzled and tickled up our noses
and when we'd done we'd get up again and maybe to gather  some posies

We played in cornfields with corn up over our heads,

With some honey as you guys swarm me
Loudly buzz about my ears, and incessantly sting me

FEARFULLY I AM DIZZY As I stand up to the honey badger--

Sprinkling fluorescent muted dots of racing shadows,
Fatefully  anxieties hypocrisies dilemmas,
As vertigo swirls away constants fathoms.

Dreamscapes inundate;
I am trapped in-between them;
No escape is visible.
Fox comes on the edge;
Four-legged animal guide,
Offers me spirits advice;
Yes, I will follow;
Dreamscape slows; we are in woods;
Among the wilds, I will learn.
Badger and wolf come;
“Join us”; spirits sent by God;

The force of my thoughts is a force to report,

Little fox silver;
Brings badger and wolf in dreams;
Sharing wisdom of spirit;
No need for language;

In the astral dream classroom.

Deep inside the hollow tree lives the humble bumble bee,
making honey all day long with its busy buzzy song.
Up above within the leaves the energetic weaver weaves,
snatching twigs and leaves with zest feathering the bestest nest.

Four fine fellows

under the weeping willows 
in confusion sat
you could see they were wise
wealthy, cultured and couth
together they wrangled their minds with the truth
their fear, awe, nostalgia,...Read More

On “The Wind in the Willows”

Here the badger, the toad, the mole, the rat
bask in heaven’s misty water garden.
On lazy noon they drift upon their craft
in pages of a world far from modern.

Sleepy, dreamy, grassy, mythical mood,

I Grew Up In Bath
I grew up in Bath in the nineteen nineties
wearing short shorts over tighty whities,
while Bath were champions of English Rugby,
a beautiful city farfetched from ugly.

We played on Stilts and had Yo-Yo's,
skateboards with logo's,  
Tamagotchi's, Slinkys and Pogo Sticks,

He was so fidgety when I was ten
He tossed up his head to make good his wager
He wanted to be a Sergeant but became a badger
And bully-ragged Harry our village mailman.

Get his own way only himself does let.

Winter-Olympic Dreams
I've been watching too much Winter Olympics;
I dreamed  I was a figure skater last night.
I arrived in the arena like a skating swallow,
swirling round the ice with the swish of fencer's epee,
an Elizabethan-style codpiece harnessing
my ridiculously-enormous, lycra-wrapped manhood.
The audience...Read More
