Chalk And Cheese

Once there were two sisters named
Chalk and Cheese.

In the bud it must be nipped.
Meanwhile Chalk, racked with guilt,
Slunk like a mongrel...Read More
mongrel, abuse, animal, creation, deep, emotions, tiger,
My favourite animal is large,
And, believe me, no mirage,
It is of a mongrel breed,

It is every tortured cat
Set on by some nasty brat,
Every pet that's left...Read More

I owe so many.
And they've become overweight.

The obligation I owe the mongrel

Perfidious voices carried on a turbulent wind —...Read More

Go on Back
mongrel, childhood, city,
Go on Back....
Sit among the dandelions
listen to the bees
thank the broken pavement
for the scars upon my knees
walk along three decker canyons

hop within the hopscotch chalk
a dance form to amaze
hit some rocks with a long flat stick

The smell of dead flowers,
Life dances at "zero hour"-s,
No wonder man is doomed,
when you sit there, deplumed.

even after I washed hands,
they still feel so damning.

City Sun Spots
He’s got a twinkle in his eyes
an aversion to cold prose
he recites – obliquely – poetry
a king without his clothes.

still they caress her dancing feet
as she pirouettes on concrete
floating down the city...Read More
