HOLE BETWEEN THE RIVETS:

Tasty buns,
Barking dogs laughing like pirates,
Fast mouth of a man talking like a little boy,
Nearly man,
Talking to a woman he fancies,
But shouldn’t,
But does anyway,
In hope,
In pestilence,
Sounds like a tv presenter,
Sound like a clown wig,
Cheap joker,
Triangle beater,
Illegal use of the tongue,
Innuendos of cheese,
I’ll show you yours if you show me mine,
More tea this time?

MUD ON THE NIGHT TRAM:

The phone kept vibrating in my pocket as I tried to make art,
Eyes closed,
Let me sleep,
Cover me with overcoats,
Have I not done enough?
I’m a colouring book,
A fistful of crayons,
And a ticket out of town,
Forgive me if you would,
I’m a bit overwhelmed,
A glass,
Precariously balanced on the edge

KEEPING SCORE:

You sound strong,
I wish my darlin I wish,

What are you lookin at With your money in your mouth?
A tiny Red light winking on the ceiling of the room I wake up in,
All blacked out,

The windows don’t open,
All the air we breath is conditioned,
Hissing at us as we sleep,
Covering our ears for silence,

Red signal,
Can’t move,
Leave it twenty seconds,
I’m severely disrupted,

Im a circle in pointy shoes,
Torn paper pieces strewn beneath the seat of a circle train,
I’m the gap between the platforms,
A leaning stick,
The get-off & the get back on again,
It should be embarrassing,
But it’s not,

When are we leaving?
Hurry up & live!
Keep crossing clear,
Never hit by traffic,

Acupuncture hens & massage,
Can I give you this?

It’s weird being out,
Especially going into a working men’s club,
You can drink,
But I’m not drinking

IN THE THICK OF IT:

Last night in London,
At the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith,
We saw,
THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE,
It’s the second time,
The first time was last year,
With a different cast,
I raved about it then,
I’m raving about it now,

This time,
Like the first time,
I concealed my tears,
As it hit nerves,
Struck chords,
Rung bells,
About time I wrote that letter home
