A woman smiled

A woman smiled
And I forgot my stress
I forgot that I forgot
And smiled back too

Zero-fade philosophy

Transition to zero
Hair becomes nothing
But sandpaper skin
You shouldn’t go
Against the grain
Is what they
Used to say
But didn’t say
The actual way
When the grain
Is so fine.

The fade is fading
Every second
Can feel it
Growing back
Life’s a fade
If it was one of
My hair styles
You think you’re there
But still nowhere near
where you need to go
But when it’s grown
The time is known
It’s zero-fade day

Hokey cokey storytellers

Time for a hokey cokey
sounds of words go in
then go out another ear
In, Out, In, Out,
these people are all about

They sniff a london powder
and chat some shit,
good thing that I’m aware!
Pupils now so big
tube trains could fit in
In, Out, In, Out,
Not even touch the sides

Roll another notey
to stop their down
and that’s what,
their life’s about.

“Do you like to travel?”

A gentler human asks a question,
Hoping for a vast and exciting answer
‘A cultured-clever-wealthy-fine Sir’
A wrong answer could equal a shun

That is what she demands
Someone to escape and adventure with.
Right response could probably drop pants
Time to enter a cheeky little bid

“I like to read and meditate,
Really clocking up mileage,
I travel the regions within
Or spend nights journeying through page.”

Her facial colour drains well quick
A picture from black ‘n white tv,
How exhilarating to see,
Her unrequited false fate unravel.

A conscience fires up within
Seeing the death become her
Her visible reaction answering
a hundred silent questions

“I have travelled a lot in Europe ,
And often go N8 to see a mate,
You can’t always come with me
But yes, I like to travel.”

Internal mess

Outside is clean,
Face shaved hair styled,
The carpets are hoovered,
Surfaces wiped.

Inside is messy,
Cleaning up isn’t quick!
Takes time
For those surfaces

Like Lady Macbeth
Scrubbing her clean hands
The bloody mess
inside her mind

Autumnal canvas

Canvas print on the wall
Of a warm hospital room,
A fragment of the beauty outside,
For those that are stuck inside,
On this autumnal October day.

Yellow, red, orange, brown leaves,
On the ground of a canvas,
Hung on the empty santized wall,
I hope this patient man leaves,
Walking, to fulfill his last wish.

Hook, line and drink sinker

Tomorrow’s world is here
Didn’t happen like they thought
The dream turned to shit
Evolution changed direction

Another smokey whisky later
Drunken devolution is now me
Might as well join the rest
A nice predictable mess

Positivity takes effort
Big gulps take less
Reality’s effect
In the bottom of a glass

Warmer by water of this life
Not a girlfriend or wife
This heat won’t last
Until I pour another
