T’ Doar, The Window, T’Floar, The Wall

Put wud int t’oyle keep gust art
A way in, a way out, an entrance, an exit, life, death, a person with two faces like a coin, Janus, New Yr.

Thy are a pane. See reight thru thee.
A window. An eye on your soul. A frame of reference, of mind, on how others live, a mirror when dark.

Put thee feat ont floar wheir t’belong.
A floor. A steady surface from which to rise from. Growing place for flesh and root. Earthquake home

Hold thee sen up. Thas plastered. A wall. How to divide, ignore, privatise. Graffiti home. How to hide, not listen,
How to be safe.

Invisible Town, Invisible Mother, Invisible Father

An invisible mother walks
down an invisible street
searches for invisible sons
and daughters.

An invisible father looks on.

Poor & Scavengers live in metal
skips on unwanted, superfluous items,
cupboards, sofas, tables, chairs, books
second mouth food & drink.

An invisible future is lived day by day.
An imagined past could be real
as morsels of food found.
An invisible life in the moment.

The Unwarranted Delight

A smile wants to be on my face.
I am not sure. I want to know
Why it had to ask at all
And not just happen
As it usually does?

Can I redeem my inaction as the rainbow
At my door glows through my letterbox.
Hope is to be allowed in
Rainbow knocks.
I am unsure of strange rainbows.

Happiness threatens to overwhelm.
I do not like being bullied
Even by good things.
I must teach it to offer itself politely
No rough housing

Autumn is season
When for no good reason
a fluttering in the stomach
a lifting of the heart
as if you have a crush
on nothing in particular

The Business Language Seduction

A caress would reasonably be considered
to constitute a warmth.

Outline the curves of thought
Including but not limited
to a kiss along

a kiss along
the roundness of an idea
part the differing but similar paths
to explore a third way

Appropriate action will
be taken raising a request
to the service desk
including but not limited to
a move within the body of a thought

And in the heat of consideration,
the sighs of deliberation
whether satisfactory or not
an accommodation by each body
of thought be reached
