A Drunken Sailor of Sorts

It’s like cold Chardonnay, This weightless floating. Homes I left behind trail Away into a pupil in the sun, A self-contained equilux, Sinking over the ocean. Mermaids sing memories Across changing winds, Upon which my realisations Race then hover and sit, still. They also sink and acquiesce Into the arms of the horizon With each […]

Plastic Smiles and Peaches (remix)

Revisited this lady and gave her a makeover. I placed her on a bunch of inky/pastel/lipstick stains that I had scanned in. They reminded me of paua shells which reminded me of eyes, seen on many Maori carvings. They also reminded me of black holes and phone screens, or mirrors. Like the original, I surrounded […]

Taurus Moon

Lost in a Kisscape The world feels like A crashing car A dying sun I clasp your face Shining colours Eyes with daggers A new-found confidence Luscious The way it tastes All these Starwaves A blooming flower In the moonlight I see your shadows You see mine Soft Cruel A sense of belonging In your […]

Time to Haiku 3

Flipping off mid-storm; Promises frosted over Til Spring consoles us.   *   Cyclone escapades Open and close my windows, Bringing outside in.   *   Lonely sinkholes sing Poltergeist passivity, Loathsome and profane.

Time to Haiku 2;

  Trying to slumber. Cumbersome ideas fall In and out of my mind,   Flying around my Bedroom – thundering phantoms; I bring them to life!

Time to Haiku

1. My fingers through yours As bullets nuzzle brothers; Float in the bloodstream.   2. Pieces of Corinth Crack the long fragility Of patterned design.   3. Dawn extends her hand Over my burning eyelids. From crawling, I stand.
