Buried leaves

I buried heaves of leaves From the crown Under my cosy bed; They turned a uniform brown, Those which were once Green, yellow and red. To have a glance At the once-upon-a-time words I dug them out and read, They appeared hazy and blurred But I felt them fresh in my head ...

poetry readings – approach with caution

  I planned to read some stuff in Scunthorpe   the venue is a good one and some of the women have caught the eye of this grey-head wannabe.   I packed copies of my latest book – passable, if I say so myself, better than my ‘prentice efforts, not great, not good, but getting ‘there’.   I preened before a mirror in a soigné black fedora,   ‘not bad. not bad at all, my ...

Swimming frogs
