DREAM BLEEDS




pink sky
white lawn

&
at the kitchen table
coffee
slaps
me
around
the breakfast things

till 

realise / admit
i am 
not meeting 
a wizard today

the man in a purple gown fades out
back to dreamscape
not meant for the sun

& sky glows now
on the
wet lawn shine

its own blooms
away

In-between World

name shouts
calling for YOU

~

apocalypse noise there
rends the ether asunder


six soap operas
roll cues as one

as
phantom fender benders
smash-crash somewhere
outside the windows glass

NEIGHBOUR POP 4




3.  MORNING

school governess  
leaves 
her 
corner empire
for dawn tai chi

round 
a palm tree island

the flame tree there
will catch
low afternoon sun

long shadows
on
the
parade ground

the
firemen came out quiet
for
her
husbands death convoy

100 years ago

like the soldiers they are

amazement escalating
as

her porch
took him
four years
to build

& its not special

but to her

like the soldier it is
