WHERE THERE’S TEA THERE’S HOPE:

I’m missing the end of an E,
Virtually burning,
Talking before speaking,
Walking before waking,
Silence inside the noise of nothing,
Slow burning halo,
Thinking too far ahead,

It’s about process,
Not time,
The room attracts inquiring eyes,
Adjust the light alright?
Can you see me?

A printed tiger,
A leopard dropping spots,
Cursing your luck,

Gathered round campfires,
Stories,
Conversations,
The softening of boarders,
Compassion

Tuesday 5th December

WE LOVE WHERE WE COME FROM:

I found a silent damp gathering,
Going somewhere,
Exchanging nothing but aromas,
Glances,
And electric games,
Cases for leaving,

Sky-hole to the sun,
Optimistic photograph,
Secret hush,
The walls move fast,
The toes get scuffed on best shoes,
The names of familiar places wait for visiters,

Spread a little happiness,
Parallel lines,
Parallel man,
Brilliant unusual gifts,
Interest free credit,
Hands together,
Clapping without moving

TRY THIS BAM!:

Laughter clears the wreckage,
Put some in the washer,
I was lost there,
Wandering,

Oh Mamma!
Just what we need,
A song,
A connection to kinder times,
A paper bag of butterscotch sweets for the journey,

Do you want chocolate?
Bang the drum,
I got some,
This day is forever,
Whatever,
Driving

YOU ASK ME FOR THE NUMBER OF A ROOM IN TOKYO:

When I’m West of Birmingham,
I can see it,
But I can’t remember,
It’s higher than I recalled it last time,
It’s been the same one for twenty years,
Took me ten to work that out,
Just ask for a view of Shibuya,
The screens,
The shrine,
The forest,
The trains,
Football on the roof,
Hidden from the shoppers,
Wrapped in a cage of lights

Friday 1st December

EVA & BAZ:

You’re a cartoon,
A cartoon mouth,
A cartoon voice,
A caricature of the yourself you were,
A clone of what was great,
What happened?
Did you gave up searching?
You were fantastic,
Now you’re a cartoon,
A bag,
A t-shirt,
A facsimile,
A photocopy,
You were the shiny,
The cutting edge kid,
No one could touch you,
What you did,
Now,
You’re the cartoon
