Borderline: Senryu

BORDERLINE

What is this border
Between your dream and real life
But a real life dream?

2020 Full Stop: Shadorma

2020 FULL STOP

Look around
No carrots, no sticks
All the chocks
Pulled away
Down time can become dream time
Up to us right now

Three Steps To Love

THREE STEPS TO LOVE

One: I think
I love you.

Two: I learn
to love myself.

Three: I know
we are one.

Novitiate

NOVITIATE

I ask myself
Do I love you?

Is grass green?
Is the sky blue?

Look deep
Do I love you?

Is grass grass green?
Is the sky sky blue?

Look deeper
Do I love you?

Is grass just green?
Is the sky just blue?

Do I love you?
Look deeper yet

The Mathematician

THE MATHEMATICIAN

Although rough
Approximations
Made it look
Plausible
More precise calculations
Ended a bit off

Kept going
Drowning in ego
He wanted
To figure
This conundrum on his own
Madman that he was

Till it reached
It’s own tipping point
Bouncing off
Each other
Suddenly all became clear
Obvious really

Night In The Desert

NIGHT IN THE DESERT

Silent witnesses
The stars of this cloudless sky
Like a string of pearls

Tiny incidents
Where ungoverned chance had
Drawn her here and there

Looking back she saw
Not chance but evidence of
A greater pattern

Sexism V. Feminism: Four By Six

SEXISM V. FEMINISM

There are those who get it
And then those who fail to
Who inflicts? Who suffers?
Balls or tits? Beside the point

The Definitive Connection

THE DEFINITIVE CONNECTION

Mistaken identity, long lost soul
Locked in this Dutch coffee shop
Hid deep in Amsterdam 1980

Red rice disguises another
Unauthorised breakfast item
Bequeathing the crown of horns
To the newborn king of the jewels

Then it’s thank you, cut and run
From their war on consciousness

Who

WHO

Who knew that there is
No one there to understand
That you understand?

Postprandial Pals

POSTPRANDIAL PALS

When the curtain falls
Those acting opponents
Clean off all the pancake
And repair to the pub
