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

Birds On The Wire

BIRDS ON THE WIRE

Oh, Jenny
Recalling yet

How we’d sing it together back then
Swapping the words back and forth

… drunk …
… choir …
… tried …
… way …
… free

Leonard has passed
Me, I stagger on

Wondering
Where you are now

And even
If …

Oh, Jenny
Oh, Miss Jones

It’s Never Too Late

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE

We’ve both made mistakes
Let’s let bygones be bygones
And make some fresh ones

Heart Friends

HEART FRIENDS

A true friend then
Is not that coward
Who’s too fearful
To risk your anger

Yet brave enough
To bitch about you
To other people
In your absence

It took you years
To recognise this
But the other kind
Don’t even notice

Ben Her

BEN HER

We are always together
We are always alone
We are always ourselves
Alone together alone

True Friendship

TRUE FRIENDSHIP

Time spent together
Ephemeral as flowers
Yet it continues

In Touch

IN TOUCH

Where are you?
And what’s
Happening with you?

I see your on-line site has gone now too.
While – lost but not forgotten – I remain
And would appreciate contact.

Communication after all
Is even at its best
A two way street.

While without any
Bearable life disappears.

Accidental Betrayals (A Four By Six)

ACCIDENTAL BETRAYALS

Adrift in this jet stream
Futures already gone
No longer remembered
Those unforgettables

Sunny Side Up

SUNNY SIDE UP

Let us fill Winter
Cold and dark both night and day
With our warm regards

Fire II

FIRE II

Fire – a good friend
A dangerous enemy
Some people likewise
