Beyond Distraction

BEYOND DISTRACTION

There is no real “No”
To the ultimate question
Just “Yes” or “Later”

Open All Hours

OPEN ALL HOURS

Caught without an idea
Alive in livedness
Unexpected panic
Covers her breasts and crotch

The Voice: Four By Six

THE VOICE

An untamed voice cries out
“Here’s to awakening”
And the clink of glasses
Resounds from shore to shore

Pour Me A Stiff One

POUR ME A STIFF ONE

Black cocktail shaker
Timespace is shaken then stirred
It’s all in the mind

The Return

THE RETURN

Under a willow
Reading till a sudden breeze
Turns over the page

Terminal

TERMINAL

The conductor cries
“End of the line! All change please!”
Passengers wake up
Look round for their possessions
But no pockets in a shroud

Equality

EQUALITY

Shake your brother awake
If he is still asleep

And if your sister is still asleep
Then waken her more gently

For her’s is not a dream
But a foul nightmare

The Road To Damascus

THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS

Vision
(Enigmatic, fleeting)
Made him grovel,
Forswear his faulty murderous
Dream.

One Too Free … NOW!

ONE TOO FREE … NOW!

Remember that time is an illusion
Everything is happening at this moment
And has (also) already happened

Nothing to worry about
The worst has already happened
And we are still here

Let go and watch
Offer whatever help you can
And let it be

Going Going Gone

GOING GOING GONE

Here comes the Unborn
Celebrating the Autumn
All dressed up in leaves
