Thinking burns holes
Pulls the rhizome from the soil
Adulterises birth
Acts like an overdose on ice
Brushes intuition off the ledge 
Spoils the smell of bacon cooking 

It drags something in and sits it on the sofa 
A weird creamy mass that never...Read More

I Hired A Monkey
One time I hired a monkey 
He took notes for me in every class 
I would just be sittin’ there 
My mind a happy blank 
Well my monkey, kept busy 
Scribbling on little paper pieces 
At the end of the...Read More

While driving
I'm not a poem,
Nor a limerick. 
I am not a pun 
Nor am I a joke.
I'm not a scene from an apolitical 
Horror movie.
To be more concise, 
I'm easy to find.
Just look into my eyes
and you will see
I am me,...Read More

Pools of rich amber...........shimmering 
The heart needing to be touched ;

Light through honey hues
Sticky
A liquid gold 
A warming hold

Bouncing off tragedies 
Hearing the tears
Falling with the fallen 
Walking on pain
Seeing it all and more
Unable to stop 
Unable to start

Moving with the moving 
Locked within feelings not mine 
The invisible invisible 
Things that shouldn’t be 
Far away but here
Through...Read More

Selfie
You best check your arrogance 
there is a difference between narcissism and confidence
If you don’t know the distinction my dear, it’s not your competence

Thoughts May 9, 1969

The Great White Sea, I walk upon,
exists in my mind of darkness.
It’s there one moment, then it’s gone,
this unknown form of wickedness.

The dismal night, the sunless day,
explains unnatural movements.
The creatures hidden, they do stay,
until the lite from...Read More

Waiting for Nobel
Waiting for Nobel 

With the brain, body and behaviour
Of a young boy, 
I was standing in a hollow hall,
Continuously staring  the art
Of a young artist in free verse,
On the front wall.

Finding the same category
Between us,
I said, “Hi”
And suddenly 
All...Read More

Discover,
Until you discover
That your discoveries
Has not been discovered
Yet.

And then discover,
That, what discoveries
Are left to be discovered.

Keep on discovering.

Lift off of life
Lift off of life

It rises, up and up,
Leaving alone the hands.
It is still moving up
leaving his habitat
To follow a new thought.

But at a limit, it stops;
As if confused in choosing path,
And in the life of him enters the wind,
Pushing it...Read More

Something not whole 
The fifty per cent you might not want 
The fifty per cent you might

Something that could be either top or bottom

Premium Member DISCLAIMER
A chimpanzees sap is part of me
Running free
Swinging from tree to tree 
Somewhere in the past
Where my hereditary 
Was finalised and coded
Then loaded
Into a secretion
The empty palm of Chance 
Fingers of Time 
Where still the atoms dance
With everything and everyone...Read More

Premium Member SQUEEZING THE WALLABY
Intelligence Tests are completely delusional 
Designed by boffins for other boffins 
Idiots with nothing better to do 
People who want a badge
People that play with their spaghetti thinking of cake
Drink through straws like children 
And have less common-sense than a...Read More

scarcity is an unlimited amount of wants versus a limited amount of resources
i thought love should never be scarce,
but our love has scarcity

No one taught you how to scream 
It was already there 
In place behind your face
Somewhere bleakly secretive
Joined to the muscles of your gob
And the offices of pain
Completing the job of making you the same 
A bundle of  ‘ready...Read More

I write poems on flashcards in chem lectures
do you know what it's like to not Create?
to watch without expression your fate?
my Time has been stripped 
by a System that's dipped
in a false plate of gold
we do what we are told
and lose all Time to Create

Rain falling from the tips of leaves 
The tips of children’s fingers.........

A silent journey 
An unknown destination 
Always giving in to grabbing gravity 
Pulled down to earth 
Wanted and needed 

Never having to feel

Shrinking starts as a bit of fun 
And no one notices the bit by bit reduction 
As five-foot-six becomes five-foot-five ;
Even your family doesn’t see 
Until ,  of course ,  you’re five-foot-three 
Or a little bit less than...Read More

If you’re not one of them there’s something wrong 
What you say is mostly ridiculous 
What you do is not good 
Meaning that you are somehow below 
Not quite ripe

Not worthy of note

And one Sunday she did pray at mass 
With God’s answer was ‘this surely will pass’.

Vaping
A vaper does not really care
If anyone can breathe fresh air
With flavoured dung
Dusting a lung
They're happy just to have a spare!

Vaping delights their lungs and blood
Like blowing smoke as thick as mud
Repeated use
Tightens the noose
Until their heart can't beat the...Read More

Shapes of perfection 
Formations beyond imagination 
Conforming to necessity 
Performing to necessity 
In places of necessity 
In sizes of necessity 
Where necessity has place 
And place has necessity

Struggling to escape the seed and the egg

Hardly can anyone imagine them ever being sweet

Others are found juvenile delinquents breaking into condos
