what   !   a   shame
            it isn’t    the season
               for gossamer

the corner’s slope
         was steeper than I’d guessed
         and, braking, I was not sorry
         almost to roundhouse kick a cyclist

It isn’t fair      they are saying
laughing      he came from the north
expecting snow      now look at him
with that
           nozzle
Matti did you stack
the milk with      the dates going
backwards?      I did but isn’t
it strange

jailbird jerky published 28/10/2016

deeb

In the wild he would attack hessian sacks lumpy with victuals and brawn
— or with sand, slumped over
aluminium frames, signalling construction —
never having known, caged-creature, the slow-eyed wet-roiling peace
that occurs after a kill

Dougie does not partake in tobacco
Je ne mange pas de ce pain là, he says

for you my friend.
Don’t be bothered by
the Penguin Classics cover, ochers
of wit almost gone back to soil,
beasts lost in the flood or
survived but without tongues
or claws or feathers

I say
you say
this lousy t-shirt is Hounslow
I’m floating with Piri piri Chicken.
It’s mother’s day and you ask about orphans.
Car sex

There is only so much room in an attic
I tell you with
signs.

into belief

John Berryman 1970s Interview Misheard & other poems published 23/09/2016

john-berryman-06

John is very unwell.
Imagine the entire world drunk.
Every relative every stranger every tree in Alaska every tree in Germany every tree in Brazil drunk.
Every cob-web every bird every earth-worm every heave of every sea drunk.

There’s the innocence of an inside-out day-break.
The grease of his beard growing into his mouth.
He thinks he’s saying what he thinks he’s saying but is only hair mumbling.
He’s utterly compelling.

He’s got an inquisition raptoring up his spine.

New poetry by Paul Leyden.
