pacing the fairways
of the pitch and putt
herring gulls

Tuesday, 23 August 2016

the herring-gull
on a hotel rooftop apex
lets out its cry . . .
the silhouettes of chimneys
against the first dusky pinks

Monday, 22 August 2016

the last scraps
at the bottom of the chip-bag . . .
seaside heat

Tuesday, 16 August 2016

a faint wavering
in the rosebay willowherb—
Silly Season blues

Monday, 15 August 2016

repointing the brick facade
of the old town church
designated Korean:
August morning sun

Sunday, 14 August 2016

where the city
peters out into fields:
an old white mare

I'm very pleased to have a poem, 'Headgear', published over at The Wardrobe.

    outside the registry office
a momentary pose by a couple
             of goldfinches

Friday, 5 August 2016

break-out area:
my ex-colleague's mug
filled with knives

Thursday, 4 August 2016

in my left foot
a first inkling
of autumn

Monday, 1 August 2016

nattering over the fence sunflowers and hollyhocks

Sunday, 31 July 2016

the hill's long climb: 
my laboured cadence springs 
yaffling yaffles

Thursday, 28 July 2016

sunswept funeral:
nobody knows the tune to
the departing hymn

Listening to Warpaint

at Field Day, Victoria Park 

The bassline slinks deeper with the dusk,
sinks deep into the vein.
