These old oafish ways
Are like the park as it turns
All camoflaged charm

Circling Charm

He sang the birds down from the trees
And all they did was peck his head,

He never asked questions
but always found answers
Like a gravedigger chipping at rocks,

And his grace always smelt of surprise
Like a tedious shock in the night.

If you welcomed him slowly
He would jump on your words,

He was a ring road
Circling charm.

Abandon

Your nose was on fire,
Electrical sandwiches
Lay strewn across the floor,

Erotic soul spat out the speakers
As lesbians wrestled
And peace deals got signed,

We coughed up
Half chewed peanuts
And sang without words,

Everything was a chore,
But fuck it we thought,

Without weekends
Our dreams
Were just piss in a storm.

We Grasp

The difference between
Good planning
And reaching for the future
Before the present
Has played it’s hand,
Is nothing
But trimmed fingernails.
