A dog barks into the stillness,
the hollow rasp of its voice
like the unsheathing of blades.
Cold iron slicing across the flesh of dawn.

Memory Lane on Google Earth

I read the words
Student Union Bar
And I suddenly remember
I kissed a girl
And I liked it


A waterfall of hazy blueviolet wisteria flows down over three balconies, the soft pastel sweetness of its colours bleeding into bright white walls and seablue sky.

new nikes

Grey cats eyes 
Perfect young skin
Her tiny athletic frame 
Wrapped in Adidas grey
I allow the delight of her sweetness and youth
To sell me the more expensive trainers.

sunday morning

Sharp mediterranean light leaps through the window, illuminating the thrillingly aesthetic geometry of the fuschia bath mat on the anthracite floor tiles.

 A single orchid flower falls and lays like a bruise on the honeyed wood of the table.
Only silence witnesses its soft perishing.

the suffocation of a cluttered dream
a yearning for shibui

a sudden softening of the air
tender unfoldings
rapt with the scent of living green
