Easter Antibodies

Fat fills fat face
Chocolate runs
Giving chase to die

Easter buns, hot and cross
At hers that brought a sigh
At such a sight -
O why O why O why! -
No longer one a penny;
Never any left
Behind the trail
Of Easter Piggy me and thee
You see? -
You never try

SEE

We've Bunnies -
Anti-Easter antibodies -
Antigenic Easter teases
Fifty-something fuddy-duddies
Thro' the brain
The stain

That

Daffodils are dead
Petals gone
The Salad bed
A cemetery

Another man
To clear the head?
Try
Relax
You've bled the pain
To cry the rain

So now
Give it one -
Just one
More
Chance

An also-ran
Is when the sheets lie warm
And lonely in the mind.

Epiphany

Out on the blue air
I breathe
Another blue
Of continuity

Independence roars

Motility soars in waves
And life

From shallow-blue to black

Likewise I see the time
Relaxing

Our shell of gas plays out
The scattering

Shower-rays

A sense of scale -
I coast along the moon

Understand
The being

Seeing me
We all

Answer back

Epiphany (Adapted for Liquid Rooms by Karsten Fundal)

Out on the blue air
I breathe

Another blue
Inside

Freed

Pausing

Dreamless

Draws up the calm-clear
Terrain

As undertones of mind

Lead…

Ride, wend, find
Ascend
Astride a blend
Of seas
Rain
Aligning land

The inner me
A firmer hand

Aloft
Alone
A scent of
My Domain

Lucid eyes roar

Motility swells in waves
And life

From shallow-blue to black

The agonies of time
Appeased

Our shell of gas plays out
In shower-rays
A sense of scale

I coast along the moon

Understand
The being

Seeing me
They all

Follow through

Field Of Thought

Morning mangles,
Drags in the coffee craze;
Eyes hang heavy –
‘Tis a cast of hoary fags
To court my nicotinic lungs;

And I fall to Earth again.
Outside,
The world remains
Fresh-air drenched

Heady swathes of yellow-ochre flowers
Preaching to the wind
Try to tell me all is well –
O how they lie! –
Maybe once
Upon a while
Upon a day
In cool winds
I’d play across a file of strings –
Resonating tonal airs caressing words
To render songs of careless climes

Back Inside
My head-clock
Digitizing periodicity,
I stretch, recoil towards it
Through introversion,
See it waning in the backdrop –
The plane of black
In which my head rests;
And as you know,
Nothing in a brain aglow
Is all it ever seems:

Echo eggs bounce along the sand
In duple time;
Yonder,
Yolks, that are the folks –
My goal, to toast –
Would offer up a loan,
For I am on my own
Toying on a ragged plain of memories

Over here, across a field of thought,
Cerebral blues hail! –
My winter cometh
(In all seasons!):
She sees I never heal –
Even in the beauty of
Her icy scene
She’ll not save this myocardium –
My little engine
Giving life

So please don’t wreck me
In my illness –
My brain, it falters
Under pressure of its cranium.
Strife,
Misunderstanding
(I’ll never get to grips with
Existentialism) ,
Beg to rule

Now we see internal gatherings –
Their meeting place: My Head…
A parasite is warming in the flow of nerves
Begetting memes –
‘Tis I,
In DNA!

And on…
Tho’ green, ‘tis long,
The song
That I have been –
And O! the words –
I nearly pray…
