How to outsmart rowdy French guys

Get in hotter, louder and faster in French seguing to German, Spanish and English and Vietnamese and Lebanese

telling them

"I am an engineer, and I have made crepes oiseau"

and have a heart,

because the party one has that night with the MacHeaths of Lille

are good times.

Making a bird wing with hammers

requires for the one with few tools

to be incredibly swift

and deft;

and static tears

in howling storms

for all the sparrows that have died.

There was a face

visible in the landscape painting

that meant really


Which is Ancient Greek translated into Modern English for

"everything is beautiful in its own way"

your frowning sounding board face

the face that left an imprint on the mirror

in torrid delight kissing the Cheshire Cat

the face of Orpheus bent

after many attempts of the brick walls

"between 9am-5pm No Understanding"…

the heart's shortcomings

quietening to dark apparition

open the windows now

to hear a psithurism

that pets Our singular tortoise geography

with the seven swinging eyes.

The citadel ahead in the haze

was claimed by a tricoleur

on arrival it housed only a scavenger's romantic circle 

suspended vocations on retaining walls

installed like paleolithic homeware paintings

that is, with the sense of homely…

JRR Tolkien's wife's favourite son the good writer called the second.

the boy went 'aye aye father' like a harry potter thirsty for knowledge

'You know, the Second? My favourite words in the English language are 'cellar door' not because of its meaning but because of its sound...'

Small Poem for artist Tom McGlynn (USA)

the jigsawed labyrinth
by the lifesaver of a Hart's eye
as if by tectonic dynamite
spilt milk on my splintered feet that walked 
amongst a contraband of jasmine
the starless sky sent me no message of other gardens.

Rosemary Sketches

A deliberate experimenter walked and smelled rosemary bushes

with an immediacy that endured rains,

worms and summer.

Found on someone's wrought iron fence

a bag of rosemary lay hanging with

a sticky note - "Take as Much as You want" 

smelling it, taking it in, dancing with it, cooking with it, throwing it around

like salt for luck

the deliberate experimenter had rosemary as

Ariel's telex to WS on the birth of Prospero
