at the station, it's tickets


The timer tjchoked with his beloved friends, posed-mortem post-funeral, about one or other of all their many cronies they've seen off in as many years.

"We're in the Departure Lounge, waiting our turn -- just saw so-and-so off ...", he'd entertain.

Time, his turn, up; now, mine, to see him off.

The scheduled departures though, as all departures, a nightmare ...

... always to' early, ne'er to' late.

Bird on, a-Wire'd

on a pyre;

in a midnight fire;

a child's poem

all day fight the tear by turn to grin by joke too grim to choke -- better thought the thoughtless fool than thought the thoughtless sop thought the foolish thoughtless sop -- 'til the flood-gates break as a sop foolish thought lest unsafe... now you know, a child's poem

garde à l'eau

stick about long enough, you'll get splattered.

speak english, you say? 

ok, gardyloo then.

the bid's and the be's

looked
for, in love,
drugs, 
in religion, 
in hate;

in disgust, 
disappointment,
mind eyes closed; 
thus, it found me.

sole food (soul foot)

"I've bleedin' haemarrhoids", an old hippie shoe-maker bared as, his sole; hemorrhaging un-staunched: "psycho-somatic though, you know -- anal fissures?" He thought. 

Thought again, then again out loud: "Guess I should stop calling people bleedin' arse-holes".

...gas so.

sin set


aperitif, 4 parts spirit, 1 part love;
flaky potato, seasoned to bits with salt, pepper, and butter-to-boot; 
wife's masala chicken, 
dash of home-made mustard, tabasco, and a zesty, by far too fresh-for-its-own-good young, most-green lemon 
– shades of a piña colada sinset... 
... sunset, at Roodeplaat, or was that, Ventersdorp, or Standerton.... damn?
...dam! 
bon appétit.

(for Yusuf 'Jeremy' Karodia)

banquets and bullets,
beggars and kings,
scorched earth dreams,
screams, ice
cream and rings,
catalytic converters,
catatonic
stupor,
cataclysmic,
upheaval and rage;
profits, prophets and doom;
gloom, boom, broom,
to sweep,
in its sweep
matted hair and wound,
to earth,
mother,
womb: wonder-kop,
wander
