Shirt Button Torch Light

Shirt button torch light
Glowing out gently,
An owl’s plastic face,
A small marbled dolphin.

Shirt button torch light
Making the walls move,
A dog on a hillside,
A sky caught by cobwebs.

Shirt button torch light
Absorbing the TV,
A hero splits cotton,
A bad guy melts softly.

Shirt button torch light
Fading out slowly,
A flickering signal,
A thought before darkness.

Under Flamingo Clouds

A week of factory smoke
Glued tight by a still wind,
Sitting pink above a sunset,

Flamingo clouds
Perched in the country.

Cats fang voles,
Pheasants skip like infants,
Bullocks sulk in unison
And the sky interrupts with showers

As I sit cold on a bench,
Rain waking my face,
My shivering body
Bringing the trees to life,

Leaves gently falling,
My heart beneath soil.
