Premium Member Scratched

There are gaps in the particleboard;
quince wads fill the breaches.
Nicotine newspapers underlay the linoleum.
It's a rented place, he tiptoes
around its yellow layers.

He has a friend he visits on Sunday afternoons.
The walls of her bedsit are paper thin.
She thinks her neighbors...Read More

Yellow newspapers underlay linoleum.
The apartment is a nicotine
an atlas of a blotched sky

And Margarita holds her mother's sleeve
as she's lead toward the waiting surrey ride.
El Segundo with reins of bays doth weave
to find a space at colonnade's near side.

With pleasure Margarita's mind agreed
with mother's nice suggestion asking leave

How uncomfortable I was, sun beating down,
wished I was back home in Esher,

Family Tree
Family Tree

The family tree grows tall and true,
Its leafy branches cradle me and you.
Like every tree it has a season
When branches drop, sometimes without reason.
Our tree has suffered great distress,
Not merely damaged, but under major stress.
Our central trunk now counts...Read More

But no! You let her ride across 
And keep her corset dry!

The secret lives of chimney pots III
Marching out of the cloaked shires
Of landowners, stockbrokers, 
Hereditary Peers, and ruddy faced 
A vast multitude of many varied 
Amassing in the great cities, where,
Inhabiting shadowy chambers, 
Behind nodding sighs and hushed 
The Masonic Civil Servant plots and
Standing vigil...Read More

And went towards the bathroom.
He shaved himself 
With a Gillette Techmatic

When you're old, though no one heeds, 
Your mind is verdant with weeds
And I find I must admit
Other's problems take a hit.

You're friends are all just crazy
And you grudgingly conclude,

Catch 22

In pursuit of extrinsic desires anew
From a dead end grave startled she wakes
Within her eyes fate appeared to be taut

Island of dreams
Johnny’s got an island
In the Surrey countryside
It isn’t very long 
And it isn’t very wide
It’s got a little duck house
There’s a tree upon the bank
And on a summers evening
You can smell the septic tank
The views are truly stunning
To the south,...Read More
