POETRY

Due to my mental health experiences I explored and found support on an Australian site.  I made friends with a poet in the support industry there and he encouraged me to start writing poetry myself.

I found expression in publishing free form verse, free flowing from a new font of spontaneous exultations that I can set loose at will.  It is like a wall has been taken down on my subconscious and I wonder what or who I am transposing with my verses and their voice of tirade?

I have been published four times, three of those in publications dedicated to mental health and  mad writers, veterans of various mental health systems.

MAGIC CARPET RIDE

I have a magical council flat

it comes on state benefits

with a joy-stick

for matters of travel

and worth.

As I fly across

the world with my door

tightly fastened against crime

I wonder who will knock

when I land

on some distant shore?

Facing the wall

the 36 inch flat screen

I hit fire

and alarms ring, pull

back on the stick

and circle back homewards

another fiesta of colour joining me

on the way to the realty section

of the newspaper

for a new abode

with less ramshackle feelings

of tenuous hold on me and further

less flight time.

Love

And I fell in Love with a gorgeous actor who is South African and exemplary in every way.  Charlize Theron.

And there is someone who knows I am looking at Her and that means I am getting into the act of being.  This is going to be the start of something which I cannot begin without saying that all can tell that You are going to make me very happy Dear Sweet.  B

SUBVERSIVE

Malcolm MacLaren doesn’t know what it means

he’s a punk in another window called Sale

and Use

he is not a wonder of the world

I am and I wonder.

 

There is not a while for you to sanely

go to the end of the wharf

for the right to iron out

your floor belongings

it is about the right of many

to understand we belong to mighty right-handed usage and

warp and that rights it all down

on the place of all things

 

called the youf of the planet

and not the rights of armies

who understand nowt

about the subtleties of

politics that use the darnation

of rightwings to be able to

make it to the rentboy’s wonderland

and sue you to the

floor.

 

It is not the foulmeans that tested one

it is the right of all to be here and now

and that is why they do not know

if it is about time or sorrow

to be here in the endzone

wondering where you are!

Why do you live so mechanistically

when you know it is too long before you die

and that makes all the wonderment

go into the rights of all things

under the Tzar’s clothing.
