Rain tuts on the roof
Winter keeps growling at Spring
And the dawn just yawns

Those tropical winds
Wafting out of cheap heaters
Turn dreams inside out

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

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 at dusk
Burnt terracotta patting
A lollygag gagged.
