CLUTCHING THE NEWS:

Crows leave gifts in doorways,
Charity,

Fingers dance,
Writing,

Tool belts hang from hips,
Move fast with purpose,

Time,
Wrapped around wrists,
Urges motion,

The stares of unwanted glances,

A name written in Silver on Black,
Classy,

Snowflakes on shopping bags,
Too early,

Cigarettes for comfort,
Happy Birthday!

I could stay here all day,
Clutching the news

Monday 20th November

HOLE IN THE ROAD:

It was all so easy back then,
Fairytale summers,
Laughter,
Family,
Pink,
And White,
And Green with the light on,
Leave the light on the landing at night,
Check you’re breathing,
Precious,
The healing of your hug,
The best in the world,
Antidote to dark side,

You,
Came into the world unique,
Everything got better,
Transformer,
Evolver,
Teacher,
Muse,

I would have done anything,
Tried to do everything,
But I can’t protect you now

Friday 17th November

WE MOVED THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER:

The drifters leave in dirty shoes,
Hands hung by their sides,
Slow walk,
Beneath a new look,
Leave before the party starts,
Missing all the best songs,

Love starts early,
Finishes late,
Last minute cancellations,
Telephones ringing,
Ones & zeros,
Hello,
Good morning,
Plays to an obsession,
A long one in Blue,
Clutching cancellations

Thursday 16th November

WE DROPPED OUR HANDS:

Dressed in Black,
Skin like powdered snow,
Raised towards the sky,
Bouncing the sun with delicate fingers,
Reaching for change,
Collecting tin foil,
Re-discovered lost,
Living the dream
