I don’t need a spark

a singing lyric lark

a golden harp.

I’ll choose someone nice,

keep him all my languid life,

cut you out with a knife.

Fuck you heart!

I’ll arrange it all my way,

it’ll be ok,

keep love at bay!

I’ll make a checklist

Nice, Clean, Good-looks….

Reads, Listens, Cooks.

I’ll get the perfect man,

with the perfect tan

well, I’ll do what I can;

He’ll have irritating optimism,

because of his part lobotomism,

I will have a baptism

be converted to his niceties

be the perfect wife-ity

I’ll have to do some splice-itys

grind my feelings into dust!

get rid of all my lust,

let all emotions rust,

meh, I’ll do what I must.

I’ll force myself to hold his humble hand,

do lots of nice things that we’ll have planned,

Oh, won’t my life be grand?

But you won’t stop fuck’in beating!

Hoping for that one chance meeting.

even if it’s only fleeting.

you’d rather make me sick,

an date an Intellectual dick,

or a moody musical loutish tick,

I don’t get to pick

whose face I want to lick!

Heart, you make me crazy


a little bit too ravey.

The guy may be

arrogant, disparagent

and ultimately not paramount

Yet he’ll make me giggle

nervous so I fiddle,

and feel all warm in the middle.

Fuck you heart!

He won’t like me

when he see’s how crazy I can be!

he’ll ignore me

never adore me

probably never even saw me.

I won’t be able to breathe

no tricks up my sleeve

all I’ll do is greave.

Fuck you heart

Set me free from ache

There’s nothing else to take!

Please give me a break.

The Word Witch

I don’t care where they come from;

Latinate, Anglo, Germanic or slang,

they give incantations, hexes and chants’ a nice twang

Each sentence, made to stun.

My word doc; a metaphysical caldron!

Elixirs to cause laughter or tears,

little javelins sent to enter your ears.

Every word an ingredient for my potion,

I’ll lay them upon you, a literacy lotion!

Novels, now they’re a complicated spell,

I prefer short stories, and poetry as well.

There’s no need to sip at my word brew,

my enchantment’s already cast upon you!

Food Porn

Sizzling sausages
now cucumbers in cellophane,
go well in beagles,
served with one meatball and one profiterole.
First put a finger in a hula hoop or jelly ring,
look at the succulent chicken breast.
Desert’s eaten-mess with orange segments,
lick the plate clean to get
lady’s fingers.
Manage a jumbo sausage?
Hot dog! The burger’s in the bun,
toad’s in the hole, time for gravy?
The banana has split,
leaving a cream cone, and
a ring doughnut, well iced.

Your Mistake

Slice your wrists,
take all the pills,
for all I care.
We’re done,
that was my choice.
Finish yourself too,
if you like.
Nought to do with me.

I’m saving myself,
from your your texts, your calls;
They’ve made me dead,
from the heart down.
Each new threat
no longer rattles in my head,
you’ve cured me of worry.
Not cos I think you won’t do it,
I just don’t care.

The Day You Saddled the Sun

  The sun set one evening and you followed,

to return an item borrowed.

Reaching to the ball of light,

you reeled it in, a fiery kite.

Sparing no time you didn’t pack,

just hopped onto its golden back.

You laughed and it was filled joy,

then sped away with your new toy.

It coated you with star-light dust,

it knew this way you’d never rust.

My branches bend to and fro,
the wind strokes,
I’m dancing.

My body bows,
you’ve made me make an arch,
I look pretty that way.

I snap.
I shouldn’t have strained myself.
I didn’t grow like that.
