My poetry is now available on the Southbank website;
Obsessed with Pipework: No. 31

a pictorial poem, each piece evolves from the preceeding one, without which it would not exist. Here the poem stands as a perfect whole.
A dazzling spike of diamond shot
straight into the red rubber ball of my heart.
Vivaldi’s trumpets blew everything away,
Come with me.
I’ll cook strawberries for you
with hot brandy and cream,
and lean against your knee
in my soft-as-dustard cushions.
I shall light sinnerman candles for you
and bathe your feet in warm butter
laced with garlic.
Close your eyes
before I stop breathing.
When you smell burning
let them stay closed.
I slit the throat of the
Fair Trade banana
peel its skin
strip the shriver my tongue veins
slice it up all over my porridge
drown it in milk
and think of you.
