Shame and guilt sabotaged mine healthy growth
Internalized emotions wrought
quotidian psychological oppression

20/20 hindsight reveals absolute zero

Does a banished beacon beckon?
But of course all beacons beckon
But only briefly if not brightly
Though never as boldly as the baritone
Before balancing bagpipes blowing ballads
But it’s got backbone and backfires
Unlike the babbling bellow of a baboon
Baffling unbelievably because it’s so...Read More

The Zombies are out there.

The zombies have taken to the streets
Stirring into nothingness and shuffling their feet
it's like they have just arrived from outer space
No soul in their eyes
A miserable face
shopping bags are their weapons
And boy, do I get em

Pirate Love
the old swab barnacle bill
swilled all the grog at his will
chases the young winches
and never once flinches
knows pirate love is a thrill

Ode to the Bay of Eloise
She is whipping winds.

washing over my hair, eyes, skin.
Numbingly cold waters,
as if just unfrozen,
spilling into, refreshing
the Bay.

She hosts,

An eroded map
Of webbed and pebbled paths.
Barnacle scattered
Rolling fields of green low tides.
A fisherman’s daydream.
A meeting
Of core and sun.

She is
an awakening,
a renewal,

a provocation...Read More

Odyssey from Africa 12d, 13a
Chapter 12d (The Fireflower cont.)

As they held their breath and waited 
For a flame to catch the fire flowers 
Finally a smoky ribbon
Drifted upwards from the petals
Gradually the flowers smouldered
And a filmy smoke ascended
With an aromatic odour
As it played around Ipiki

Mill Creek
A little ways north of Mill Creek
the beach runs round
to a single wide arcing swath

Where the tide stems landward in shattered segments
fast against the open mouth
of sea and sand and barnacle

There is also a cliff near the free stone rising

The Mariner's old salted-air skin,  leather tight,
on a mast-hard frame of bones
and flash flood rushing blood,
faces ice-fed winds bouncing his ship
and helm cockeyed on continuous curling waves
from Nature's rough hewn seas,
beneath skunk-colored skies

Standing redwood tall,
in a locked jawed face...Read More

Miss Barnacle
She was drowning when

he pulled her on board his ship.

She held to his grip

anxious to start the trip.

He treated her wound with kindness,

shined her path with brightness,

took her to wondrous places,

and cured her blindness.

Soon she was hungry for more.

His touch...Read More

She's the albatross around my neck

She even got jealous when a talked to a lady of 92

When hurt is embedded, so deeply within
how does one remove it, where do they begin?

The decay begins slowly, when a life starts a-rotting
and it cannot be changed by planning or plotting

It's not be chased, nor coaxed from it's lair,
not left...Read More

She was a barnacle on my bum
Following me around town
getting jealous if I talked to another girl
even if they were 91.

I didn't want to hurt her
because she was so sweet
But every time I turned around
she'd be there on the street

She paints a perfect picture
As she trawls the rocky strand
A muscle here a barnacle there
Enough to fill both hands

Her hair tied up as best dad can

Bent double as...Read More

Awake! Dour Dreamer! And draw the curtain of benumbing clouds

Already unheeding magpies cluck rudely tongue-in-beak
