voice mail

a call, the warmth 
of a voice, a quickie
an instant surge 
that dies with a clickie

a letter, it can be read, 
savoured at leisure, 
then re-read 
for renewed pleasure.

us = them

we were young once
trust reposed in instinct
bliss being ourselves
individual, distinct

we've worked hard now
seduced by success
we've become them, and how
high priests of excess

then we made art
now we make money
'tis the curse of ageing
cloudy skies sunny, blue

the end you're in

fleeting 
glance
furtive 
touch
stolen 
kiss
covert txt
illict tryst
fragrant
sweat
sharpening
breath
pangs of death

and they died happily ever after

seething
glance
clumsy
touch
swarthy 
kiss
no pretext
short'n'swift
boiling
sweating
panting
plain out of 
breath

and they lived happily ever after 


enjoy the end you're in 
enjoy the enduring

Short Story

let me die living today
tomorrow's an illusion

they killed me

Johan Cruyff r.i.p.
(divine paradox)

a lifetime
of deeds
forever sublime

but only death
bestows 
immortality

Flood Relief

walls and fortresses and moats with bridges
me and mine and my own; that's all i care
a bucket of rain, a tide of emotion 
when you ain't got nothing, there's plenty to share

Benaud

your dream 
you reveal to me 
cornucopiously 

the cascade of words
grounds to dust
my imagination

do i have to see
this vision of yours 
as only your eyes do 

or would you rather 
let your words 
help me use mine

8.15 p.m.
(or 2015)

by blew d'muse

knights in white satin
frippery errant
betters they've smitten
slippery their end

duty i always missed
being saddled sore
just what all this means
i don't really know

blazin' at people
lance upon lance
arms strong unfolded
don't you understand

suns try to melt me
eyes age intent
eight fifteen pm
time, it is to end
