The Game

You can't stop playing.
The purpose is to forget.
The Game - I just lost!
John Horton Conway:
Sprouts, Phutball, The Game of Life,
This man has it down.
Conway’s Game of Life
Intricate beyond wonder,
Badass maths coolness

Bangin' Beethoven!
Rockin' Rimsky-Korsakov!
That's how they heard it.
What's 'life sculpting' dude-
Amorphous or curvaceous?
In the mind's eye it's...
You get with the 'ku
You get high with the rhythm
Don't care for the rhyme
Under the harshest constraints
They get creative
Time reels itself in.
Partition analysis
Isn't gonna help

Here is a verse interlude:

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind,
Some come from ahead and some come from behind,
But I've bought a big bat, I'm all ready you see,
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

Small Canine

She said 'Fonz is cool'
Little dog says 'What of it?'
'...ain't no flies on me!'

Last night's fears allayed:
Her words - expressing desire
Of time yet to come


Yesterday I strolled
Down the path to dark mayhem
Today I stayed in

Friday Night II

A storm brews this eve
Pirates drink their grog and rum
We join the tyrants

Take a photograph
Take one thousand photographs
Then sleep for a bit

Friday Night

Tonight is awash:
Cosy sleep, gentle eyelids
Still, dreamless silence.

Mr Potts

ev'ry so often
spanners and saws come to mind

Snack Artist

Put some butter on
Fill her right up to the gills
Set sail good sandwich!
Test tube xylophone,
The Bunsen burner flautist-

Haiku-less days start
Inspiration stops dripping
A drab hiatus

An Explanation

Head-on collision
Between me and thee, darling
Got us where we are

Car parked on pavement:
Kathump ting kaboom bam bing!
Drumkit collection.

Fruity Musing

Why do people laugh?
Bananas and cucumber
Arranged on my desk

Pan-nationality in Synthetic Skin

What transcend better,
The rifts and fronts of nations,
Than these humble links?

The Veggie Sausage

Strange sausage sibling!
Your unknown constituents
Peacefully combine.

The Sausage

What constituents,
Could combine so divinely?
I know nor care not.

they can often bring freedom.

Product Placement

Composition stops:
Product placement halts
Creative process.


Twenty-thousand leagues:
Syllable-ize a Kraken,
Fold up a Giant Squid.

Get Set

Al has joined the Ku!
Popcorn - pipe - feet up - and watch:
A lyrical treat
