I want to be with you

Broken poem of love to a busy world

North, South, East, West please.

hey-ho

All my loving

The Beatles' All My Loving is in my DNA There's nothing more to say
Cherry

Alone

No train. Standing in the rain. Fatality, we're told. Met his fate. Shame about the rain.

Between worlds

The initial jolt to stun.

Captive / Contradiction

The place approaches and almost everything that I am ceases to be The groundedness of me in the earth gives itself up and the familiar madness creeps in The differences are subtle

Claire

A message to Claire

Come in and sit down

Come in and sit down Kevin. How are you? Well, you know...

For a child

Re-written: Perfect childhood morning Unreachable but never lost Pristine light of infancy Glimpsed in half-awakeness

I walked across the Levels today

Searching for truth along ancient paths

Listen

So I walk in the bar and cross to the stage and the owner asks "What ya gonna play?"

Shopping list

Publish the other thing another time

Some days

Somer magic

Tuesday

Tuesday

Do you have any idea?

To no one in particular
Cherry

Do you remember?

20 years since the party

Eldorado

Nothing is ever enough

Fake / Lineage

I wouldn't say I was a fake exactly, but I don't have a catalogue or great literary lineage deposited in my depleting grey matter.

Have fun!

You haven't had your best day yet
Cherry

Light

I watched the flickering light against my eyes Canaletto skies playing in my mind
Cherry

Maid of iron

Some will rest

Moon

There's the moon Pale whiteprecise halfmoonshaped ghost of itself against a fragile sky Regular and real among the fakingclouds slashed by soonforgotten trips to america
Cherry

The red box

The wild nights bring the clearest thoughts And I wake up with a start as I recall the box I threw away as I emptied out your shed

Something I ate?

From the head to the belly or the belly to the head? Is it something I ate or something that you said?

Ouch!

Messy eater

Thicker than water

They say that blood's more thick, but water runs more clear and doesn't leave a stain

Delirium

Wakeful, restless night

Diamond-dust

From a frozen field

It's a miracle!

Right under your nose.

No name

Under pressure to tidy the books

They say it's going to snow

My head is tired and crammed My body tense My fingers will not run along the strings Landing on each pavement crack Muscles overrun by a thousand raging thoughts It's cold

Oops!

Oops! There I go ma head's a-spinning Felt life going well but seems that I ain't winning Watch those pretty fairy tales involving women who slide you down a snake to the beginning

Times like these

When the scenery falls over.
Cherry

Infinite Sky

I looked up above me and all I could see was infinite sky. Am I too late?
Cherry

So I sat down

So, anyway, I sat down and put in my earphones and that was good because I couldn't hear the bitching anymore. Dylan was providing palliative care.

The Journey

Know what I like about the journey?

How are you spelling conceit?

He likes to think he's an intelligent kind of guy

Stan

What's in a name?
Cherry

The naked self

Apologies for repeating myself. Wanted to keep it as a whole and do some tidying.
Gold cherry

Secret paths

I draw the paths of childhood.
Cherry

Suspicious Minds

I lie with this technology

Well, Madame

A watery grave for the unwary

Everything is old

Everything is old The world has a tiredness about it Like Fukayama was right And everything has been done

Just a way of gettin through

Hacking through the undergrowth.

The beck

In a dip beside a river ran a beck.

Language is

a wonderful thing

Wake up people!

The Lump is back.
