I find it on the table
A dirty lid, a skeleton
a life caught in a
dark place, lost.
Long past decay,
a perfect specimen
a perfect gift for
a girl, with artist
for a middle name.
Marla, arches her back,
stretching her long limbs,
drapping her body over me,
she sings softly in my
ear, her whiskers tickle my chin ,
as she graces me
with her devine attention.
In the distance the rock rests, against sky
A landscape dressed in shades of earth,
we wander closer , to gaze through the time
worn arch, a window into a dreamy sky.
Waiting always for the su […]
My eyelids crave closure,
my brain is engulfed in fog,
fingers slipping on keys,
deleting a line or two my
body fuzzy, begging for rest,
But l can hold a little longer
Its only an hour or t […]
The lamp flicker’s in the distance, even though there is not a breath of wind,
is it you, have you finally returned from war, my feet quicken like my heart,
a hunger, long hidden rising in my throat, as l […]
I pull the net up, heave after heave, l am a small clog in the machine, one of many, with an empty belly, working for a meal.
We land the fish , the boats full, many hands maning the oars take us to shore, t […]
We arrive,tired, but excited, acres of green and a long driveway
are all that separate us from a few quiet days.
Bright lights,night tennis none of us know the rules.
We laugh and run, chasing […]
In the corner collecting earth
your lonely frame now rests,
you no longer shine or sit,
in the centre of my desk
or place ink upon a page,
no one will read the stories
we never worked to […]
I hear you
as you travel inside me.
Our scent lingers on my skin,
infusing me with memories.
My tongue washes you,
all at once hungry and full,
I feel quiet in your […]
The light flashes, seatbelt, seatbelt, seatbelt.
Arms and legs, face mask, head down.
Moving, wheels on tar, faster, faster, faster.
Rising – Rising – Up.
Ears screaming, pressure, […]
I have always belonged to the wild,
my legs seeking the solitude of long
grasses and bracken ferns, the queitness
of a forest full birds singing, the touch
of bark as I brushed against the […]
One step then another, another on and on.
We start under stars, Venus bright above us,
a trickle of light silhouetting the trees on the hill.
Lights float in darkness, the ocean singing invades
I climbed the heart of the world
Every rocky step, clinging to
its worn surface, Above the red
desert, the mountains and into
the tower, where the soul is,
I become real here, a god,
I stretch my spirit into blue, catching the breeze,
l let my self fall and drift, with its breath. There are
some moments we move as one the flow, the dip,
the trust, in fine bone and feather, tracing […]
I wander the stars, in a boat made of
sky, following dreams in a lullaby.
I carry the moon,the sun and earth
in my coat pockets, trinkets of mirth.
They grumble and moan and dance in
the s […]
Dawn, scans the treeline, searching
for dusk, the heat of noon hides him
behind a mask of light. The bottle in
Dawn’s grip contains a magic porridge,
which once inside Dusks belly ca […]
I have become a translation,
a lost language, spoken in the
vast space between , a new
version of myself, stalking the
corridors of education, of the
past, fierce and curvaceous,
almost se […]
