He who wanders is a Canis Lupus
as if to say ‘water’.
On foot, he searches the Arable land
learning of Bedu;
give him well being, and holistic
removing the material
and the worldly.
and distant song,
which becomes evermore real
with his dim myopic stare.
And with taking out his dusty notebook
He finds poetry
within each grain of the sand.
Texts Past Midnight
A text before dawn in hope
I see the sun
and clear skies of blue-
like earth in awe
before my eyes.
I write of my mothering dove
without the aid of light;
preaching to the quiet
I feel the love
that might have been
I am broken and colder
than her, though I feel
as if we’re yet to meet;
I pleat my duvet
to cover from the chill.
I hope you get this.
I cannot sleep in this world
where ghosts linger and bite
upon my toes,
-do I speak amiss?-
for all I feel in haunt is guilt.
A Night in With Gordon
My Mother never told me
that a beverage can comprehend such life;
a piquant of desire as the soul
of its breath pimples my naked frame,
as if to say
... yes, you still can begin to feel.
Tonight there is a
certain odour in the air.
I overlap my sheets to which I bed
and my body I begin to hide
to elude the watery paste
that has dried upon my shaking thighs.
Gordon, where is my love?
Andy, she is envious of your adherence
and belief in maudlin love;
as you delve in the beauties of free porn
and circulate your luscious tongue
around the salty centre
of McVittie's mini cheddar biscuits.
If you say, I must believe.
Promise you'll cradle me tonight
until the day is due?
Just cup my wealth to your lips
and as we adjourn this I promise:
that tonight- of her- you will
never have to feel.
