Misguided – a poem

Whispers of the long dead suffer silently For wants of their former lives, those Shouts of the entitled living call harshly; Streams lost amidst the clamour for more. * Belief subliminally given to a cause In which deception plays a great part To draw more than is its lot appointed Is yet just a propped...

Dystopia Rising – a poem

Follow the cues, roll with it all, Those notes to say ‘we are here’ Guide us onwards, the rails switch, Trick and track to stay on course. * Societal patterns and games sold To the highest bidders prosper under New plans and billboards outlining Those hopes for a dystopic route. * Hopes and fears, yet...

Caramel Layers – a poem

Moments of feeling amidst the land Of dank surroundings remind me Anew of those underlayers, caramel Oozing joy ready to seep through Cracks of this burgeoning experience. * Was such considered before? Through Those long days and drawn years sold Under the umbrella of unctuous striving Without reference, always with judgement Against the world’s pained... Continue Reading →

Differentiation – a poem

Disbelief in joint experience, Guffaws with group assurance Alike to a mob tendency agreed With self-importance and the use Of charms granted by chance. * Dramatic stories told reflect The vicarious lives led apart From points of reference true Like dirty stars burning barely Through their dry and broken crusts. *

Assuming the Mantle – a poem

Points of responsibility taken, assumed For want of no other willing to be that One who stands, to whom the questions Are laid as unto the rays of dank stars. * Trials like that of singular shoulders Weighed down upon by personal Merit, individual integrity, those points Of our struggles more than identifiers. * That...

Timid Morality – a poem

​Long have I thought myself past That timid and lying morality, Self deluding and possessive Of all futures and possible past. * The now shows that though I may be Past such things, the owners are not, Strains of prejudice making rules For themselves, new ones for others. * "We are all one." they say,...

WASP – a holiday musing

Greetings. Today I break with the usual programming to bring you something different. Instead of the usual poetry (or cheeky vape ting), today's post is on something else. On holiday in Portugal for the 2nd time with family, I have taken the opportunity to photograph the graffiti when I can. This graffiti is salient because... Continue Reading →

Mint Condition – a poem

Hide, hide it all away, for expression Is no more than the death of truth And the nature of man; or so we have Been told, moulded at ages younger Than we care to think back to. * Be yourself at dire risk of being Understood, your anger, wonder, hate, All are subsumed by that... Continue Reading →
