The Extra Hour

Summer's safed minutes
Set free and giving much choice
How will you use yours?

Joint Effort (vii)

Strong bladder pressure
Each square inch felt acutely
Get me a gangway

Joint Effort (vi)

Drunk in random bars
The stochastic influence

Joint Effort (v)

Things I like to play:
Devil's Advocate, 'the fool',
Five-a-side football

Joint Effort (iv)

Lo! Fruity Mustard!
Reckless with gay piquancy
Taste buds burst beneath

Joint Effort (iii)

The Thai restaurant
We had Bo-Thai for starters
Cravatte for dessert

Inspired by Stuart Reeves and his exotic indulgences

Joint Effort (ii)

Grizzled bar person
Judge my fair features and age
And I shall pay you

Joint Effort (i)

Girl of the brown bread
Real, refined ... unrefined
You make my hair curl
Today brings learning -
PhD in paperwork.
I want to fold up.

Green shoots promise much
And deliver even more
What muddy bastards
Woozy and faint
Upright and then Parallel
A smooth transition

Phrase origins -
"Witness my strength/size quotient"
Common ant parlance

These beans-a-jumpin
Those fabulous shiver nuts
Monkey me around

When the days are dark
They still go one at a time
Facing the boatman
Low yellow sunlight -
Sparsely-leaved trees take colour,
Lamposts glow ochre.

Far, leafy bonfire
Morning air smells of whisky
And mouldering ground


Bill Hicks lost his War
On Drugs, on War, on Terror.
To arms with his cause!

That Interests Are Gay

That int'rests are gay
Inhibits activity —
You can suck my cock.

Apathy onset
In my natural hometown —
Growing within me

Join cocksucking club!
Free membership for one week —
And all you can eat!

Blog Action (one) Day (late)

Face down in the mud
A pagan's hug with the world
The earthiest love

A man immortal -
Laughed in the face of God's sons.
Then found himself sad

He made pets of beasts
Played host to disease for fun
And he dreamed no more

Time was at an end
Body crippled, insides black
Laughter cracked his bones

The nose of the cheese
Smelled just fine so we cut it.
Quivering nostrils.

Thanks to Rachel for explaining how a cheese could have a nose!

Powerful slumber
Flushing fatigue from his frame
Through trumpeting nose

I shall do haiku
Until your fair arm withers
And your hair falls out

National Poetry Day

A nation of hands
Move as one in loops and swirls

Last line a) (and downward key taps)
Last line b) Monkeys make Shakespeare
Last line c) Using ink from squids

It's like a 'choose-your-own-ending book' or something!
Too much trouble here!
People are predisposed to

Once, twice and three times
A beautiful hominid
Eating my berries

Al's New Email Address

New corporate tag
Defining me yet again
Dreaming of Spiders:
No wholesome Mandalas here.
Legs and mandibles.

Nine spiders chase me
Round their webbed labyrinth of caves
I know nothing more

When the rain comes down
The film comes to its climax
We watch window-side
