TINY GATEWAY:

The swimmer talks with a fast mouth,
About numbers,
And people in water,
To his rainbow wife,
Who slaps her leg habitually as she speaks,
It has nothing to do with anything,
As mashed avocado arrives,
“I lost my stride”,
She said,
Selecting silver weapons,
From a gleaming selection,
Delivered with efficiency
In a dance of Black & White

CAGED AIR:

You set the alarm off last night,
I woke to the sound of laughter,
Everything is better than I thought it would be,
Two dogs in the kitchen,
The smell of bacon memories,
Holidays in caravans by the sea,
One for you and one for me

MOM & DAD:

Now I’m in a strange house,
I’ve been driving for hours,
It’s my birthday,
Hooray!
I got in late last night,
Driven through the rain in a Silver car,
By an eternally smiling man,
Who offered me water,
And temperature change,
I gave him a tip when he got me home safe,
It was a good night,
But I was falling to bits

FIFTEEN WIRES:

There is a mouth talking fast,
Making a noise that sounds like words,
If I bother to listen,
They make some kind of sense,
But I’m not interested enough,
Random words fall out of the mouth,
Like,
Gypsy,
Chocolate,
And Oh my god!
