Fish Butt

Listen to poem:
Basking on the sun-lit ice.
Walrus mumble filled with hype.
Today I haven't a thing to do
(that's nice)
But fish, butt-wipe, butt you.

Pandemonium, On Fire

Listen to poem:
Pan-Pan, the demons have jumped,
Ship on fire, smoke engulfing.
It's Demonium here! But, we're coping
for now. Hoping in hell 
we can beat fire back to pan.

In the Dead of Night

Listen to poem:
The bridge is covered, has no light
all who pass over are shaded 
eclipsed by day, in dead of night
unseemly notice evaded
by keeping all's well, out of sight.

Straddling the Threshold

Listen to poem:
Edging close to brink,
I dare not look back nor blink.
Been here many times
before, but always slipped back,
losing grip in the leg-up.

Paul Klee- Little Fool in Trance

Listen to poem:
Floating dream on nimble feet
Swinging lines
Full of life
As if he’s about to fly

Watch him skip  blissfully,
Unaware
Of the world
Full of joy and full of peace
As you stare.

Full Stop

Listen to poem:
I'm poised to deliver a singularity,
   a pithy black hole,
a spot from which there's no escape
   once key or pen is lifted;
It's terminal - period:
Wait for it! The End is nigh!
There, it's done .

Sun Rose at Night, Dawned Twice

Listen to poem:
Humble moon
hid sun
from view;
earthlings
forsaken
shaken.

Saw eclipse at dusk,
when sun set,
then rose
at night.

Saw eclipse at dawn
when sun rose, twice
in morn.

Sun
forlorn,
occulted.

DONKEY DONKEY

Listen to poem:
Finding a cassette tape from 1962,
  Gave me the idea of rerecording it for you.
    Hearing our melodic childhood voices soar,
       I wept as magical memories came to the fore.
          Just sharing with you makes me love you more.

Really, Understand My face

Listen to poem:
I had a face transplant
'cos I was off my face, as was.
I trolled the book of faces
till I found one I liked.
We did a face swap, swabbed - 
me and my friend that was.
Now I am her, she is me,
selfies facing up.
We kept our friends and likes.

The War of Words

Listen to poem:
Mine's bigger than yours
I shout louder and longer
Jump-in interuptus
deterent be damned
I'm gonna have my say.
Mutual self-destruction
is on the cards.
Attrition balition,
siege swarming,
your flanks are weak.
You're not listening, are you?

A Struggle

Listen to poem:
I came upon a struggle 
with some words I’m trying to juggle
but have no fear, pray help is near
these words you’ll want to snuggle

if you care to help me out 
I’ll see you get a mention
what fun are words, if not to share
I don’t need intervention

Amid

Listen to poem:
chaos doubts
calm smoothes over
ooze sticks
rose thorn pricks
friends support
foes rear up
beauty flaunts
ruin despairs
praise humbles
fakes reveals real
dreams awaken
recovery spits and stalls
debt a legacy all in

betwixt and between
amid it melds

Summer Evenings

Listen to poem:
Summer evenings stroll on
With their melodies strong
And their playful wishes well-fed

Sunsets arrive in full glory
With a daring, keen story
Reluctant to cast us to bed

The skies blush and they croon
Kiss hello to the moon
and blossom in purple and red

In A Name

Listen to poem:
Baby Chantal,
giving her a lady poison 
by her name...
Dad gets glimpse
of high heels running
out of his future

He sees her at twenty
in his mind with verbose lipstick
with a long name he can't pronounce,
and mouths he is sorry
for calling her Chantal
