INSOMNIA HAIKU 11




night food / morning crumbs

legs & arms 
are amps & volts

frozen river time

HELLO WORLD




when every morning
i go to the window
& i draw the curtains
& i rest my hands on the sill
& i see the houses there
& their cars calmly grazing
i look it all in its glass eyes
& say

hello world

the lack of applause
always disappoints

VERDANT OVERGROW




our 
famous roadside litter
is submerged now
inside the verdant overgrow

the shrubs & bushes 
are excited / i can feel it
its spring & beautiful

~

council cuts 
mean no cuts
on the medians & verges

& its looking like
the walking dead
out there to me

AFTERGLOW QUIET




fog horns
on the thames
sound organic

creatures mournful
about the grey 
of it all

call out
for
agreement

get 
afterglow
quiet

OR BUBBLEGUM




but was a baby
like we all were

before 
being

s t r e t c h e d 

on
the 
rack of the world

like a dali clock
or bubblegum

& pumped full of filler
& cheap grout that stains

~

always 
wondering
what day 
today is
how it was
that we used to know
