Duos #12 : The Cat Lover published 28/06/2018

The artist sips coffee wondering why Gaynor wants to dance a Cha Cha Cha. She is not good at Cha Cha Cha. Her facial expression is always one of pain and embarrassment. Her hips move out of time with her feet. Gaynor has gone back indoors and picks up all the artist’s gloves. They are all left hand gloves, which is strange as the artist does have a right hand. Don’t we all. And extras up in the loft. Where did that picture go?

In the 12th edition of Duos, new poetry by Tessa Berring and Kathrine Sowerby.

Duos #10 – Chanel published 17/06/2018

Shall we go and waste £15 together? my guys
are on nimrod with the golden swimming pool. The floor is sprung at the door. the Valium unusual. And we never stop whining.
That neither of us know what an open wound in his groin
leads onto the surface, or that
Soft communion; is: my room. Sister, you are into the eyes of the destroyer

In the 10th of the Duos series, new poetry by Tom Crompton / Natasha LaForce.

Asemic writing is either the ancient soul
of our ancestors bubbling up from the unconscious,
or it’s the multi-dimensional light language of the stars,
dropping in through our blasted crowns.

Duos #8 – Urban Dictionary (a language) published 03/05/2018

the most beautiful man
the cure to the world’s unhappiness, sorrow, guilt, greed
can make you laugh, cry, and just kiss him until your lips hurt
the greatest thing to ever happen to anyone in the world
especially me

A language that others may see as being spoken by people with low intelligence
A language that only really intelligent people know how to speak correctly
A language that, if spoken, will get you more pussy than you can imagine
A language that is mostly made up of consonants and phlegm

skip eating breakfast entirely
just coffee and a cigarette

The 8th edition of Duos series new poetry by Frédéric Forte & Christodoulos Makris
