The maps of dried veins
A year of turning colours
Now we fade as one

The Pitch

The mould was broken
An asterism collapsed
And now it’s just you

Shadow Hovering

Two creeping cats twitch
Spooked by a midnight nothing
Shadow hovering

Exhausted

Overworked insects
Wade through the hot summer air
Hanging onto breath,

Daylight fibrillates
Through apple white cotton blinds
As eyelids quiver,

Soft wet excuses
Glazing each subtle tremor
And sepia blink.

Seedy Sun

Seedy sun at dusk
Burnt terracotta patting
A lollygag gagged.

In A Frozen Field

Words sketched into black
Breathing in a frozen field
Feeding hungry skies

They

They burn effigies
And whisper behind church halls
Self righteous and sly,

They tattoo themselves
With violent lullabies
And laugh through silence,

In strange times like these
They rise up from their gutters
And rustle their hate.
