He Was Just Some Joseph Looking For A Manger.

If I could bottle up the sea breeze I would take it over to your house And pour it loose through your garden So the hinges on your windows would rust and colour Like the boats pulled up on the sand for the summer And your sweet clean clothes would go stiff on the line … Continue reading

The Penultimate.

I traipse up the hill, then down again after finishing work, to meet a friend. I take the main streets. I walk on the road. I phone a friend. My clammy body smells of a double shift, on my feet again, muscles sore from yoga and hospitality. It’s a nice kind of pain. An honest … Continue reading

To A Teacher.

Hurt once and for all into silence. A long pain ending without a song to prove it. Who could stand beside you so close to Eden, When you glinted in every eye the held-high razor, shivering every ram and son? And now the silent loony bin, where The shadows live in the rafters like Day-weary … Continue reading
