Without a backward glance I jumped forward in time.

It was like pushing a splinter from under deep skin

and it was sharply painful,

because I landed hard. 

But before I could get before myself the now caught up with me

and I stand a foot away from where I last stood.

And I look like a prick.

Dating a Catholic Girl

She was nice, bubbly, pretty, fun -

at least she was until she bought up religion.

It doesn’t matter if your Buddhist, Sikh, Muslim, Jew

that is just something you never do.

It’s romantic suicide.

Anyway, when we got inside

and I had sat down fearing whats next

and I have my drink as a kind of social crutch

and she drops the bomb:

“I think the most important thing is religion.”

I cringe,

my head kinda swings as if on a lose hinge:

“Uhuh”, I say

and I wonder what’s next;

I didn’t even wanna go out with this bitch

it was my mate Dave who pushed me to date,

I wanted to stay home and masterbate.

I’m good at that.

“My dad -”

Oh god she’s bringing in dads,

that’s not good, that’s really not good,

Im begging, praying for the awaited food

but she continues:

“my dad thinks sex before marriage is bad – don’t you?”


No I don’t.

I think it’s probably fun.

But I nod emphatically, ready to run.

“You do?” she asks,

I continue this dreaded farce.

“Shame” she says sadly

I’m still nodding quite hard and madly,

and then she leans forward and whispers thus:

“Coz I want you to taste my tarte de Cunnilingus”.

Hearty hamburger

I ate my heart in a hamburger

it tasted familiar 

like any other

which upset me

because I tasted common,

and wrong

because I’m a vegetarian.

Amusing Contradictions

I cannot rite.

Pumping bodies

sweaty and silken

hair falling over

need a plaster

on the kitchen

cleaner on the oven

new fitted

dress for holiday

in europe

trains cheaper tickets

to the cinema and

new DVDs from amazon


walking tour

of the New Forest

of hair needed clipping

the lawn is a tiresome job.

Buy this thing,

things bring brilliance.

Tree chocolates all gone.

Dog sick.

The Island of Body

I have a rockpool in my hand

and my stomach is a hill 

rising from soapy waters. 

The village population that lives on my skin

scream as the tsunami 

submerges their meagre province.

Bow to me oh piteous fools,

pray to your wrathful God

for I am much displeased

with your miserable offerings

of herbal essences conditioner,

twas merely a glob,

not enough for my split ends.


We’ve all done it. 

Don’t lie.

Mind map

I am a very confused individual.

Thoughts reign in muddles

dribbling down into puddles

unsure of where to step

Incase I should get my feet wet.

Heavy ideas are paperweights

preventing thoughts from blowing away

yet in turn making light thoughts dark

woodenly leaden in shadows dark

but if I look closely I see them

not as weights but blocks of paper marked.

strip them down into smaller notions

they break into thoughts not emotions

And they blow away and back again

in a well formed thoughtless train

and my head is in a seeming muddle

like an intestine, string or puzzle

but if you follow one thought through to the end

it all seems clear that there is nothing to mend.

Writer’s block - fun short poem

I know exactly what I want to say
But all my words have run away.

Thinking straightly

Don’t think straightly

or loosely

but hardcore 

thoughts in every direction

broken sometimes whole

never oneway

but multiple

sometimes together

think to one goal

but never really
