Desires10



Night

Somewhere in the folds of their palms,
       beneath the skin they
       feel giddy depths of thrilling darkness,
complex, rotating crystals,  black fractals


splayed legged under yellow lights 

breathing cold smoke and fumes to private 
music, traffic, Doppler perfume,
muscular humming & fizzing against a

weight of atmosphere soaking into a throat 

open and greedy

                       spring-heeled

Dancing

                                                                                     "... this oaf had acquired instant grace ..."



A machine for flying deep
blue
         through the sweat and the aching calves

in a pathetic fallacy

                       from under
        oppresive strings

smiling is good

                  and they can feel the grain of a
cold morning

solidly built and distinctive in design

Photo-poem:

solidly built and distinctive in design

solidly built and distinctive in design

downwards and has to be met 
and outwards too, just as immense 
these in their pressing out
pushing up
engineering 
complications








running 
a hand gripping a smooth kettle handle
buttocks on a bed 








green morning








water on glass








tea








dust & a collapsing sofa,
rust, a
pain in a gut
dirt in cracked skin 
at the ends of fingers








lonely bonhomie 


rescue dog 








tiny children
football
& bicycles 








golden morning 








shouting suspended 
on waving
heat







glimpsed force
of a
relaxed gait







blue morning 






roses

a palm tree

a discarded hat







rusting black metal








small, intense and private fires
