grubby grists of euphuistic prolixity

Vainglorious ego's wintry hoar
Becomes my artful enemy
I leave pride's sacrificial floor
To seek my friend sophrosyne
And find through Janus' opened door
Salvation in immensity

Beck's Affiance

I trace a vow of fealty onto the water's skin
Word after searing word sinks down to still the child within
My love for her is fathomless, she is my flawless twin

Thursday, 15 July 2010


The flimsy-winged perfidions come a-fluttering
Around my head and heart like feathered gold
My blissful haze dissolves from spiteful muttering
As the sinking melancholia takes hold

Fals Trēowth

When looked for, love hides far afield
Her words of saccharine congealed
On pedestals lie idols drowned
In time, in distance, grey, unwound
Their sentimental hearts now sealed

Sunday, 4 July 2010


Such cloying smiles from silk-tied swamis every whimsy sated
Inveigled eloqence beguiles our thin-skinned pride sedated
With childlike wiles, slow strangulation, long premeditated

Life Insurance

Precious luck is wasted on the humdrum and inanity
None is saved against the cold demands of probability
Fair is fair but maths wins all in life's unplanned reality

How Much

Like the sound of earth in falling rain,
and the smell of grass where sun has lain.
All the way round and back again...

Thursday, 1 July 2010


Sleek white gulls above the air-borne froth and foam...
so nonchalantly glide
But we must trudge on dry dune grass and sandy loam...
to watch the wind-fuelled tide
