Chris’s Song

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

The bones of The City Walked in his soul The bone of The City Walked in his soul Discordian punk type Illuminated with dark rave light Illuminated with dark rave light The bones of The City Walked in his soul Rapping in the jazz whole The junk of funk He could play Marking out thoughts […]

Blockage

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

The star flittered into her mouth Sticking fast No sustenance could pass An asterial blockage She tried to cough it out And then… The star had run down her throat Ripping the stomaches lining Passing through in bloody disgorge She lay dying in the star birth It flew into the sky

Merry Christmas 2017

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

Merry Christmas, Yule, Midwinter etc…. I like to snug down and write in the winter and we’ve also created an indoor fire/story telling circle using LED lights and empty loo roll tubes – I hope you are all having an equally cosy time if you live in colder climes and a cool festive times if […]
