Come-on

COME-ON

If sex is magic
(And who are we to question?)
Let us explore it

The Get-together

THE GET-TOGETHER

Meet your family.
Here is your brother Andyet;
Your sister Maybe.
Your cousin Alltheanswers’s
Not here yet. Her plane’s delayed.

Explorer (16a)

EXPLORER

Mystery
Childhood favourite
Whyspering
In my ear
Fairy stories beckoned me
Hinting at ingress

Looking here
Looking there of course
(OCD)
Each stone turned
Discovering vibrant life
Cloaking … Mystery

Growth (4a)

GROWTH

In our youth
We would give ourselves
Foolishly
We admit
Only partially awake
Yet there’s more to it

For later
As we grew wiser
We became
Discerning
Let us be loved yet also
Explore our own core

Open Ended

OPEN ENDED

You are invited to take the air
On wings for too long trussed
(Not the best sort of trust)
So switch craving to braving
Half the sky is already yours
The other half yours to explore

She Seats Herself To Write

SHE SEATS HERSELF TO WRITE

She seats herself to write

Half fearing her writing
Will drive her mad while
Half hopes it will cure her

In two minds – Ah, if only
Thinks were so simple
Turmoil turmoil turmoil

Enough! Dismisses them all
And seats herself to write

The Wrong Approach

THE WRONG APPROACH

The world my oyster
And I the hopeful diver
With a plastic knife

Wedded To Verse

WEDDED TO VERSE

For better or for worse
A poet likes to lift
A stone to see what is
Going on under there

Amicus Curiae

AMICUS CURIAE

I am happy
To bring you
To the window

But not to tell you
What you should see
Beyond the glass

Sylvan and Golden, Fairy Tale Wood

SYLVAN AND GOLDEN, FAIRY TALE WOOD

Boundaries there were
When first I ventured but now
Crumbs eaten by birds

At home in the wood
Where we meet one another
Time and space unborn

Ponder mysteries
Wondering while wandering
Thickets of thought-spun words
