Noble is the Stag

Noble is the Stag
Pantomime horse of friendship
Guarding man secrets

Looks like I'm stumbling

Looks like I'm stumbling
Walking to in ear music
Inside I'm dancing

Zoom out Google Earth

Zoom out Google Earth:
It seems people don’t exist –
Who drew these borders?

Joe who roams the land

Joe who roams the land
Suggestively marks his path
With a trail of pants

**Any resemblance with persons living or dead is purely coincidental**

Friday Night VIII

Roll me down the hill
At the bottom there is sludge
Sludge for our ear holes

Cookie guarantee:
Satisfaction every time
Or I'll eat my words

A brand new haiku

A brand new haiku
Makes me get my fingers out
To count syllables

- Thanks to Dan for this submission!

Morning slice of toast

Cut from the space-time loaf
Physics for breakfast!

Music in a Maze

Music in a maze
Like that time in the labyrinth
Supporting Bowie

Coffee and codeine

Coffee and codeine
A dash of ibuprofen
Todo tranquillo!

DNA Unwinds

DNA unwinds
It mingles in our children
And winds up with yours

City living with
The dawn chorus of sirens
Replacing birdsong

Haiku to end a letter

I hope few months pass
Between now and our meeting
Love from your friend Al
The extra virgin
At the party suited Al,
Juicy olive squash!

Music transcends

Music transcends the
Physical wave mechanics -

Sunshine on concrete

One tree, two bushes
Blue sky and a towerblock
Sunshine on concrete

Birthday-Ku 2

There's no point counting
It detracts from enjoyment
Hurry along now
