Surreptitious folk
They may have something to hide
Concealed weapons

Friday, 28 September 2007

When I close my eyes,
Lids sealed to TFT glare,
I can see spreadsheets.

a friend that is lost
is a kite without a line
reach up and catch it

Internet-Unique Names for Children

For their future friends,
Give internet-unique names
So they can be found

Tooth Ache

Small dental soldier
Brings down greater counterpart
Like with the Death Star

Bicycle Supremacist

Four legs beats a pair
Two wheels beats larger numbers
When they are motored
"A simple answer"
Said the armchair observer.
That person is wrong.
Think through solutions -
No simple explanations
For global problems
Defining moments -
Necessarily fuzzy.
To think is complex.

The fire isn't mine!
Though my gaze held me in place,
Flames cannot be owned

Bicycle Race

Down by the river
The underdogs now top-dogs
A million wheels

Twisted organ pipes
Redirected through the choir
Great blood boiling sound

Friday Night VII (I think it's VII now)

Sun chills and goes down
Town lights up, pockets of heat
Combining gas clouds

While moments pass by
Great eras are lost to gods
Who while them away

light like a cake. and tasty

Verse dense with meaning
Sinking to the ocean floor
Struggling all the while
Brought together by
Shared Gustatory Desire,
Love in the kitchen.

No Waste Land

September is the
Kindest month, breeding Haikus
Out of fertile land.
Edible folklore!
And a pudding of hearsay.
We will eat our words.

Two Parts to Toilet Etiquette

Never talk to him
Who urinates - don't intrude.
Silent toilet time.

While urinating
Never speak to fellow man -
Toilet etiquette!

I wrote this backwards

Woods hold secrets things
You might find a new creature
Keep it under wraps

The Traveller

I've seen big green trees
Water under great pressure
And strange strange people

Friday, 14 September 2007

All the world's lovin
Kept from the undeserving
Scumbag of scumbags

Won't save you from slimy death
But will pass the time

Found that Cd, Al...
Kept it in my top pocket,
It stopped a bullet.
Give me ideas!
Squeeze in the middle until...
Each end bursts brain juice
Vitamin regime
Restarted to bring me life.
Edible folklore.
Chocomento time!
With both sugar and sweeteners,
Weakness in plastic.

Hole shaped earth hollow
Rim extending out and down
Holding trees and streams

Left in The Dark

Sometimes I prefer
Things not to make sense to me
Or to anyone
Poems are better
Categorised by subject
Than by their birth month

{...once we do the book that is.}

You Heard Me

Verse that is perfect...
Non quite inconsequential...
Shaped like a carrot.
Small bird on hippo
Hippo on great dinosaur
Nature's pyramid

Failing to remain
And plough a single furrow...
New veg discov'ry.


A dream of spiders
Jumping like spiders should not
Please stay still, spider
I heard of a place
Where food and music were born
On y va, mon frere
Accused of evil,
Crow considered his charge...
'Evil it shall be'

Wind swept me away
Earth longed for my return but
The flight took my heart

The Real New Leaf

When the morning comes
All that long-ago planned change
Will surely happen
The week at an end
We rest on the Black Sabbath
Gifts of riffs from God

Friday, 7 September 2007

Turn of the seasons
Oversees wide-ranging effects
Increasing heartbeat

Ridicule (Us)

Heterosexuality -

Biking Capers

A pure Notts croggie
Not undertaken lightly
Down a steep descent

Harvest Time

September comes round
A great harvest yield this year
A verse a day or more
We all of us fret
This time would be better spent
Humming for instance
Lunchtime - a concept
So abstract that I struggle
With its great borders
Too long 'till lunchtime!
Hungry like Ouroboros
Starting on toenails.

There are many ways
To strip, scalp and skin a cat
But get the right one
At the hill's summit
Observation powers thought
Which powers all else

By one of the Als again
As the seasons turn
Unstoppably, I hope you
turn out some Haiku.

I have a passion
For the musical arts scene
One thing I do have

I have a passion
For intelligent women
One thing I may have

I have a passion
For environmental health
One thing we don't have
Inspired by absence,
Rhythmless weeks, sparse thinking,
No haiku for days.
