(Apologies in advance for the utter cynicism - I'm a romantic deep down really)


No more love poems

please
the world's awash
with ha'penny romance -
hymns to narcissistic love
felt only in reflection

i don't care about
the nape of her neck
or the feel of his hand
in yours
the freckles on her
alabaster chest
are of great irrelevance
just another doleful drop in
a tidal wave
of tinkerbell
sincerity
the teenage dreams
of twenty-something
zygotes
put to paper

there are ten thousand ways
to say you miss him
and a million more
to paint the
flavour of your feeling
but they've all been said
and said again to death
why resurrect the corpses
of these decomposing cliches?
do you you think
that your entanglement
is special -
a lone snowflake
in a sea of
dandruff?

reserve
your diamond insight
into lust
dressed up in
poet's clothes
for pillow-hidden diaries
and if compelled to
lyricise on love
out loud,
please aim for
more than
biologicals with bells on
no matter
how you ring them
no angels
will grow wings

Desperate...

People don't
swear enough
these days.
they use their nice,
clean, universal words
all tarted up in Sunday best
so as not to cause offence
and keep their venom
bubbling inside
arteries...

Johnny teetered by the edge of the cliff, his jelly legs threatening to wibble and/or wobble him over the precipice to his doom. This was an exercise in fear-facing, an attempt to...

The undertaker
Has taken over
The olde curiosity shoppe


And in it he sells
Dead men's whistles and bells
For 25 dollars a pop

Do you bask in the feel of a piece by your thigh?

Does your arsenal make you a macho guy?

Do you tingle inside when you shoot your nine?

Do you polish your pistol to make you feel...
