grubby grists of euphuistic prolixity

Night Bird

The setting sun's last lonely unseen shard
Stirs liquid notes from boughed and feathered bard
The treetop silvered voice and night entwine
Black chanticleer's enraptured notes stop time

Saturday, 27 February 2010


The gargoyle's sqall-fed slavers curdle lime with baleful glee
Malignant cataract falls dark to baptise you and me
Shadow'd holy ground eclipsed no revenant dare pass
Her eyrie's buttressed tide of human bones like molten glass

Friday, 26 February 2010


Disgorged unseen malignant sanctimonium by night
Oblivion's maw cold comfort for the innocents' thin plight
Cursed phrygian priests lament destruction of the veil
Inexorably exhalted now is hell's unholy grail

Let Me Go

So when in time this summer ends
  I'll sit with you
    and hold your hand
      and catch your eye
Until earth's warm embrace so lovingly extends

Then wed me to my black-loamed bride
  I'll lie with her
    she'll comfort me
      in dreamless sleep
With autumn's golden harvest untouched at our side

When long the winter nights are past
  I'll search for you
    to hold your hand
      to catch your eye
We'll talk of all our glorious summers long ago at last

Lost in the East

Anarchistic ochre'd sun
Kiln-fired sloops their gauntlets run
Silken skeins en-mesh the few
Whom gold with cadenced breath imbue
Thrice-fired in scalloped chivalry
To navigate the last labyrinthine sea

Tuesday, 23 February 2010


Inscrutable though fenestrated
Mullioned in stone castrated
Lead-encompassed skies confined
Occluded art pure light maligned
Refractive umbra consecrated

Monday, 22 February 2010


Translucent scaffold vaulted lights
Byzantine stars ionian heights
Glacial minarets of air
Fissured symmetry forswear
All first are last, lone maiden flights

Sunday, 21 February 2010


Spiralled ceramic psychosis now calls
Earth-banished deity through grey-mortared walls
Biblical tears flood the disinterred floor
Chastened breath fetid from Uruk's dark craw

Saturday, 20 February 2010


Eliptic cross now blessed by crows
Soft candles cryptic resin prose
Enshrine the cloistered hooded flock
In oak-arched holy green baroque

Friday, 19 February 2010


Abject descent of high grandee
Uncivil servant's squalid tweed
Disingenuous dignity
Grave eloquenced duplicity

Thursday, 18 February 2010

Mantle Pieces

Thread-bare blunted riven wall
Narcissistic marble scrawl
Faceless clock entombs burred chime
Unwound, struck handless, starved of time

Wednesday, 17 February 2010


Straight-backed and stoic stands the magus duty-torn
Uncharted and breathless is his stone horizon born
Last man still standing, beached, brave pennant flies
Betrayed and forgotten wearing hope's faint disguise

Tuesday, 16 February 2010


Pitiless child born of blind equinamity
Consumes and incarcerates gilded profanity
Wraiths sucked like sweat through the pores of her dreams
Voiding all senses pervading her screams

Monday, 15 February 2010


Far flung incendiary ancient confusion
Ash arboretum sealed in seclusion
Dusk's stippled veil breathes faint song of the dew
Then fades into verdigreed moon-dappled hue

Petty Tyrant

Lascivious mouth shines wet with goad
His furtive fawning envied toad
Unctious grubby greed betraying
Scarce-contained triumphant braying
Artful eyes sneak dark deceit
Enpaunched fat frottaged fingers meet

Saturday, 13 February 2010


Untrammelled copula failed windswept steed
Loathsome crennelation choked with weed
Metamorphed verboden dream
Escaped the slavering dusk-split beam

Friday, 12 February 2010


The fathomless shunned seek depths unplumbed
The bloodless deserted for lips blue and numbed
The infinities scorned by the uncountable skies
The unknowable erased while the inconceivable dies

Thursday, 11 February 2010


Sentience in sanguinity
Dark heart's oblivion
Last laughing obscenity
Bloodless, shunned carrion

Wednesday, 10 February 2010


Incant your air-scoured solitude
Around the black-teared sun today
Your incoherent viscid-tude
Portents a stoic multitude
I await, enfeathered, enveloped, decay

Tuesday, 9 February 2010


Feckless quadruped, stand your ground
Forgive clear-eyed your enemies drowned
Seek the ephemeral incandescent
Fear only the house of the leaden crescent

Monday, 8 February 2010


No need now to close the door
Encroaching meadow stays no more
Once silent nursery gives birth
Rumbustious nature green with mirth

Sunday, 7 February 2010


By living human eye unseen
Soft crept reskinned unearhly sheen
Blink suspended watery world
Through lensing tears unfeared, unfurled

Saturday, 6 February 2010


Blighted shards of liturgy
Hurl fractured swooned cacophony
Apoplectic vitriol
Crow's nest fain rhetorical
Barbed epistemology

Friday, 5 February 2010


With sonorous veracity
Uni-vowelled capacity
Eschew vocabulary
For stumbling syllabary
Of such dull-witted opacity

Thursday, 4 February 2010


Viscous thought untainted by task
Ignorant serenity cloistered sous-mask
Self-delusional beatitude
Unrequited gratitude
Foetal mirrors own brilliance to bask

Twenty Fathoms

Cathedral dreams in aged chill
Slumbered sands reclaim bared stone
Crusteceous gourmands take their fill
Thus crumbled pews join chancelled throne

Tuesday, 2 February 2010


Petulant prism dread light ensplinter
Wearily windowed eosophegal winter
Gutted supremacy newly-mourned plight
Wallowing turpitude embezzled by night

Monday, 1 February 2010


Chrysalis heart for a long-dead tree
Silver-winged centuries daydream the key
Newly-mown grass imprisons child-like me
...and my inanimate, inadequate, intimacy
