Three Vixen Sonnets

Three Vixen Sonnets

An attempt at the sonnet form and an attack on Oscar Wilde's 'unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable' - a re-post - sorry trying to finish my fifth album so my postings have been sparse of late.  THREE VIXEN SONNETS  As storm scud swirls beneath black-bellied clouds, soft sounds behind her, the rain is muffling hungry empty-bellied whines and snuffling that prompts slow-pawed slinking through hedgerow-shrouds; ears pricked at hints of a gathering crowd. Slip ...

Step Into The Light

Step Into The Light

Written after three death-bed vigils in five years and the choices made to let loved ones go... Step Into the Light I hear the skip-rope beat of another failing heart and she's calling me from a world away and the first step is such a perfect place to start... So I lay her down as blackbirds sing her soul as fragile as an insect wing she's drifting through the endless night she takes my hand ...

Lost Chord

  When life deals us another cruel blow... Dedicated to a soul sister in South Africa with love And  also on being denied access to my grandchildren. Birds still sing, somewhere; But just for now their sounds are muted, dead. There are reasons for our seasons… And just because those things are hidden does not mean they do not exist. All that ever happens is still winging its way into the stars; And, if overtaken, ...

The Boy of Silence

The Boy of Silence

Rewrite. Based loosely on a true story The Boy of Silence . The face behind the harlequins gaze hides the scars of yesterdays man. Born in an  Attercliffe slum in the rags of fathers graft, with a pencil for a voice stolen from milk mans note. . A boy  in possession of an imagination and no future Who can still see a glimmer in the rust buried in the abandoned steel works, lost in  council’s ...

Death In A Drive By

Death In A Drive By

An old rhythmic rap about American Excess cards and gun culture. To be read aloud with a pulse preferably...   DEATH IN A DRIVE-BY What could be worse than being shot in a drive-by A block in the back of the head by a fly-by Talked half insane by some half-assed wise guy Getting stoned to death by a dread-locked I-and-I Blinded right and left by two fingers of red-eye Your heart lies in ruins ...
