Blink

Standard

Five years ago. Valentine Thoughts.
Strange how all the typeset and settings had gone awry.
I’ve tried to reset them.
Happy Valentines Day 🙂

Wall to Wall

Pink Panther Pink
The Valentine stink
of sickly sweetness
is hammering hard at me.

Blink

Wolves and hearts
not so secret ink
from chain to chink
Greets you once again
with a churlish wink.

And Blink

Checkout slides
boxed chocs to sink
against the tongue
that slinks
Into a most moist mouth

Now Blink

Supermarket Rose
now out of sync
My missing link
buys thoughts
you can count on

Blink and Blink and Blink and Blank and Blink

Bubble & Squeak

Standard

foil toil

fire burn
cauldron bubble
fattened stomach
ballooning stress
gorge and glut
rut to excess
arses spread
generic sofa
all becoming
festive loafers
sip and slurp
burp and bare
effervesce
white noise stare
glazed potato
seep and emit
ponder on
yearly remit

Was it
really good
for you?

 

About to add a poached egg to my bubble & squeak

Poetry Advent Calendar: Another Window Eight – Brush Pastry

Standard

I knead

on the pavement
brushing pastry debris
silicon slender and red
knuckles grow raw
knot needed know more
grit spits shits
from a mouth
in your bed

About 10 metres up from the Spoon (the original window 8) on the Newtown Road in Malvern, this vivid pastry brush awaits its owner to reclaim it.

Spoon ahead

This will be my 2nd poetry Advent Calendar. The last one appeared 5 years ago. I had no idea I would be doing one again until I came across this welcome window in the leaves a few moments ago.

This window was found on the Trinity Road, Malvern just past the church.

I’m assuming that someone was having such an excellent morning that they chose to throw this mug out of their car on the slog up the hill so that it landed on a bed of thawing leaves sunny side up.
