The common man is hidden

He hides

Society once dressed him in grey

And navy

But now out of the magician’s hat

Badly free

Punctured skin and stored notes

NHS notes

Honey bee hives, sweet and gammy

Political votes

Enter the torn horse kicking gaily

A New Daily

Opinion shattered, warming sugar-sweet

A viral horn

TV people collecting crushed data, ice


Nature as usual, nothing much said, led

Red river-bed

Back down in the verdant silver valley

Money talks

…   …   …



… thanks for listening …

I’ve been in the attic, I’ve been in the cellar, I raided my notebooks – I’M HAVING A YARD SALE – It’s a Car Boot – THEY’RE UNFINISHED LINES, unfinished poems, POEMS THAT MISSED OUT ON PREVIOUS RETROSPECTIVES, good ideas, maybe BAD IDEES, inspiration, OR JUST GOOD TITLES, MISFIRES, abortive attempts – IM CLEARING THE BACKLOG – opening up the storehouse, come on in!  – I’M MILKING THE PAPS – so mother-writer’s milk might flow on through!
