Loss

I would never thought to
miss the kookaburra
woke me up at 5am
but I do today
along with other things
like

watching the fish swimming
in the water hyancinth filled
inground pond

reading by the crackling fire
under the shade cloth

the smell of lavender, rosemary,
basil and sage from the garden

Sunday roast
and the laughter
once a family gathering brought

although
they are not the things
made me feel like home
but today
just today
I do miss
them

Truth revealed

when love runs dry

my body cringes

at the sound of your voice

it gives me away

my denial is futile

One of those things

Is there truly a God?
I don’t see Him.

There is truly wind
as I know how it feels on my skin.

Is there indeed true love?
I cannot see the future.

There surely is happiness
as my heart sings when I see you.

Internal chaos

the nose is having an argument with the lips
you are too pouty
you are so snobby

the chicken is talking to the duck
she says cluck
he speaks quack

my left arm is wrestling with my right arm
we are gonna tangle
we are going to embrace

you and I are fighting
we are mutually amused
each plotting the makeup sex

Love song dedication

la la la la la…
you sing to me earnestly
hum incessantly
your pitch break through the frozen panes
guiding me to sail the stormy flakes

la la la la la…
I respond to you hazily
haing in tune
searching for the warm glow
in the fortress of snow plains

are you there
are you there my love…
you sing to me earnestly
hum incessantly
your pitch break through the frozen panes
guiding me to sail the stormy flakes

over here
over here my love
I respond to you desparately
haing in sync
searching for the rescue light
in the fortress of snow plains

I am yours
I am yours la la la la la
you sing to me earnestly
hum incessantly

make me whole
make me whole waah waa….
I give out despondent cries
galvanising another court of ice sculptures

Self conscious

i wonder why
the pool guy turned up for work
in Speedos

is it necessary?

what if i change into boob tubes
staring down the runway
meh

it is not neccessary!
