I’M DANCING!:

Yeah,
I got my spiritual mirror ball,
The morning spoon erect,
The head on straight,
Eyes front,

The wires twist,
Down from the ears,
The lips receive,
The words that tumble,
The love that transmits waves,

What’s the weather like where you are?,
A haunted thought,
A chill wind,
For,
The sunlight of the soul,

My synaptic friend,
We meet again,
Who’s hands upon the wheel,
Take me for a ride,
And we go dancing.

SHE’S ALRIGHT:

Who’s that knocking, bag full of harps?
Frustrated driver,
Walker,
Knuckles wrapped in a school tie,
Watching the woman with the 60’s hair,
Who’s watching the traffic with distant eyes,
Head in hands,
Thinks too hard,

Make something,
Make anything,
By the light of the last star the first star falls,
Look,
Here comes Venus!

MY FRIENDS THE FOODS:

The carnations are on the table with the bananas,
The nectarines are canoodling with the chocolate,
The Tropical Mix remains aloof in it’s sealed plastic world,
The chess nuts are hard as bullets,
The cheese footballs are threatened with extinction,
The uneaten cakes await their fate beneath a clear glass sky,
The Italian biscuits have joined them,
The Amaretti are hiding in a gaily coloured tin,
The bread is cuddling the bagels in the bread bin.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING SHED:

The only way,
To get away,
From who you are,

Passing through an undiscovered country,
Found,
Forgotten,
In a hotel room,
Hollywood,
Reached out,
But you were gone,
No everybody misses you,
Play that song on the radio,

Who would have thought,
A star as bright as you,
Would slip away?

The Black hole,
In a world of Love,
So young,
So long gone,

Everybody’s flown,
Notorious,
Only waitresses
Understand me,

If I’d have known,
You were on your own,
I would’ve caught a train,
To see the world,
Through your eyes,
But,
As it is,
I’m here,
Exactly where I’m meant to be it seems.

MY WILLING ACCOMPLICE:

Tip you over the edge,
One flight,
One shot,
Too hot,
Goes nuts,
That’s rich,
(If Only),

Cornered with a double cup,
Unwrapped,
Unzipped,
Sweet-stuff,
Cute,
No fool,
Standing on a bridge of light.
