Inalienable: Shadorma

INALIENABLE

Strange beings.
Each their own planet.
Who dares calls
Alien?
Look around then look within
And burst out laughing.

The Hidden Snare: Shadorma

THE HIDDEN SNARE

Beware of
Dangerous people
Stay silent
Stay alert
Unless you’re a masochist
And want to be caught

Anathema: Shadorma

ANATHEMA

She found it
An anathema
To answer
His question
She appeared not to realise
Just how rude it was

Odd Osprey: Shadorma

ODD OSPREY

No raptor
Vegetarian
And misfit
Pacifist
In sum non-breeding migrant
Waiting to go home

Overcommitted: Shadorma

OVERCOMMITTED

Decided
To start a list of
All those jobs
Needed done
Promised to self or others
Ran out of paper

In Mourning Still: Shadorma

IN MOURNING STILL

He ventures,
“Here’s a suggestion:
Share laughter
Together.”
She points to the iron gates.
The sign reads “Keep Out”

Once Bitten: Shadorma

ONCE BITTEN

Some woman
Turns and smiles at him
Ignores her
Turns his back
Waits to walk on till she’s gone
“Nowt but trouble there.”

Roundelay: Shadorma

ROUNDELAY

It is in
The darkest hour
That the worst
Is over
And things can only improve
With this fresh cycle

Thaumaturge: Shadorma

THAUMATURGE

Fancy that
The magic of words
You love me
Then you don’t
Schrödinger’s cat in a hat
A conjuring trick

Passing The Time: Shadorma

PASSING THE TIME

Sits around
Waiting to peg out
There’s some past
Some future
The in your face presence
Spent unravelling
