Beautiful One

Oh beautiful one, adorned with spell
To ravage my world as might a sweet angel.
Oh beautiful thing, so much at ease:
Allure of caressing breeze in touch gentle.

Oh beautiful creature, sail me do,
As floating on seas of halcyon blue tincture.
You beautiful being, gracing charm
And features that render feel of deep texture.

Your beautiful poise in glide supreme,
Gives such like a vista honed as from heaven.
That beautiful art of face ornate,
Not ever to understate or be riven.

Your beautiful flame of pulchritude
Doth dizzy me high, so I conclude always
You beautiful girl forever be
My shining Janette; my guide; my stairway.

Agony

I lost my arm, a leg; the head
Of once my brother fell to me.
I caught it with a scream caressed with
Bowels, anointed with our blood –
Arterial – of crimson zest –
Ethereal in oxygenation.

My mother whined a haunting dirge
Of ‘Why? ’ and ‘Will this never end? ’
I answered with my bluing lips
And gurgles of antiphony.

Dying in our agony,
We make a sorry nation.

Night Of Nights

‘Twas deep; so deep of night,
When I saw what I had seen -
So truly deep of night,
When I went where I had been,
And really deep of night,
When I heard what I had heard:
Perhaps a fox or badger,
Or a sort of night-time bird.

‘Twas late that night of nights,
When something there was there -
So very late that night of nights,
Where that thing was where -
'Twas deep of night of nights,
When it ran to where it ran:
Perhaps a stoat or Billy goat,
Or ghostly little man.

‘Twas in the night of night of nights,
When something scary caused a scare -
So late of night of night of nights,
When something hairy raised my hair -
The deep of night of night of nights…
So don't you wonder what it was?
Well I never really truly saw it -
Why? Because because!

‘Twas in the night of night of night of nights
Oh I've had enough!
Night night.

Heaven

Paving stones
crazy on the floor
belie their role of cogitation -
they feel our feet

And as I stagger on
they find my catastrophic state of play
a little too amusing, and
laugh upwards
to penetrate the black of heavy eyes

And I shall smoke to see myself in Heaven
Heaven
and I shall drink to see myself in Heaven

Ol' Sack-O'-Bones the cat
stray as any stray can be
shows he has a sparkle in the eye
or shall he ever die in filth;
hard-honed skill, his pornographic pill of life,
rips apart a Rattus rattus
then he looks out
across the spent fields
tattoos of my rent facade
laughs upwards
to penetrate the black of heavy eyes

And I shall smoke to see myself in Heaven
Heaven
and I shall drink to see myself in Heaven

I walk ‘n' talk another while
the drink, it brings another smile
in my pause to finger junk that jumbles up the bin
might I have a win: a cottage pie
that never saw the microwave
before the violation
you know
the mandatory dates
and so I mutilate the morsel

Does it eye my desperation? -
laughing upwards
to penetrate the black of heavy eyes

And I shall smoke to see myself in Heaven
Heaven
and I shall drink to see myself in Heaven

We and I and life and them
the people making Man
observe inwardly
we're all guts ‘n' blood ‘n' stuff
melding in with failure

I know upon the drab horizon
lives another Man
mowing lines in parallel
pandering to snobbery
runs a route in every day
arriving in his air-conditioned greyness
wife ‘n' kids betraying him in every way
as long as he can have another pair of legs
to open for his only goal of sanity

then He turns
laughing upwards
to penetrate the black of heavy eyes

He knows my song:

And I shall smoke to see myself in Heaven
Heaven
and I shall drink to see myself in Heaven


So here I try to stand
peering o'er the cliffs that oversee eternity -
that ocean sprawls beneath a heavy head of grey -
how am I to comprehend the being?

Looking up I see the overhanging Providence
Laughing down upon the world

to penetrate the black of heavy eyes

He knows the fact that I am wrong

So I shall smoke to see myself in Heaven
Heaven
and I shall drink to see myself in Heaven
