The New Millennium

THE NEW MILLENNIUM

Men’s spirits raped by calculating brain
Did misremembered Orwell write in vain?

Luxury Cruise

LUXURY CRUISE

Beneath, behind
This emptiness
No consumption
Can ever fill; the
Craving masks
A deeper hunger
The yearning of
A homesick soul

Well-wishing

WELL-WISHING

May your yearning be satisfied
Your thirst quenched
Your hunger assuaged

The Ghosts Within

THE GHOSTS WITHIN

Let us speak then of that other life
The spinner’s repository of folderol
Festooned in imaginary encounters
Draped deep in private consequence

Studded with those who never were
Beyond skull fashioned imaginings
Willfully departed, or lost to death
Or fairy phantoms yet unincarnate

Take as Molly and her wheel-barrow
A sat nav with no sense of direction
Still flappy tongue and cock the ear
All one in God as God is my witness

Watch as Aunt Peculia cocks a snook
At all those landlocked into Mr Polite
Let all sing together, “Alive, alive-O!
Cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O!”
…..

Pass Key

PASS KEY

Caught up in anger?
Intend Forgiveness, Healing
Release and Peace

An Easter Egg for all.

Simple Pleasures

SIMPLE PLEASURES

I enjoy sneezing
I find it pleasurable

I consider sneezing
A respiratory orgasm

But my wife just says
I complicate everything

Utterly Lost

UTTERLY LOST

Too too easy to be
Utterly lost even in
A so familiar place

Physically present
Mentally miles away
Emotionally absent

A promising moment
Utterly lost in anger
Dissolved in my acid

Eternal Light

ETERNAL LIGHT

The stars cease not to shine
Beyond this gaudy luminescence
Obscuring their softer light

This heart and mind of mine
Do not forget their silent presence
With closed eyes I wait for night

Brain Wave

BRAIN WAVE

A few chemicals
And electrical changes
Teeny-weeny sparks
Pray tell me do at which point
You began calling it “Mine”?

Supposing

SUPPOSING

In the gentlest of tones
She raised the question
Of whether mankind’s
Current predicament
Might not have arisen
If only we had elected
To portray ourselves
Instead as womankind
