Democracy

Now could we all agree to differ? –
Set our quarrels straight.
We'll place our cards upon the table –
Call each other ‘mate’.
Accept that we can’t all concur – it
Simply can’t be done!
So exercise democracy –
Our freedom from the gun.

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.

Fate

There was no love

-at most deluded hope
and one deluded guy-

No ‘us'
Or ‘we'

- I've one illusory night
all told-

Our fate will e'er belie

Finality: Farewell to 2011

Pain pulses as a breath
Drawing down,
Pulling on the nerves,
Dragging on the conscious mind.

Nimbostratus clouds heavy in their death-cue
Hang above the bed.

I spoke to Him,
Staring at the deep:
We stared our stares,
Connected.

We met,
Compromised;
Warm blankets covering
The pain to keep it well inside me;

And as I writhed,
I bled the strain.

We’re now at one –
Artists drawn together
Needing one another

Though this will be forever.-
