Luminous

Tiny rip in the structure

A little light blinking out

In otherwise absolute darkness

They are here somewhere

Stirred to move

By this unexpected change

Brightening

Luminous

 

A to Be

Anything before came Devilish.

Everything forgotten; God has it.

Jingoist killings long Mankind’s never optimised purpose.

Quarantined rights sent through universal views.

Wishing Xanadu, your zoo.

Publication in LiteLitOne

I’m  pleased to hear that I have a poem published in issue 4 of the journal LiteLitOne.
‘Different Lingo’ appears alongside an excellent selection of poetry and fiction writing.

Unlocking the Safe

There’s treasure behind that iron door
But it’s locked tightly shut
Impossible to open
Without the right key
You can’t blow it up either
With a stick of dynamite
Or a wad of explosives
No, you’ve got to have the key

Lucky for me, I’ve found such a key
All I have to do is sit calmly
Clear my thoughts and breathe
Focusing on the cool air going in
And the warm air going out
As I do this, the door starts to unlock
The safe blurs, then disappears
And I see; the riches were here all along

A Utensil

A utensil for you

Knife

Fork

Or Spoon

A tool to help

Prepare and dine

Is it

Dinner time

Jigsaw Puzzle

Rows and columns

Trial and error

Loading up patterns

To make a picture

Of a time now passed

There are missing pieces

 

First Light lyrics

Here are the lyrics for First Light, a song off the new Points of Convergence EP.

The new EP can be found here: https://pointsofconvergence.bandcamp.com/album/the-present-climate

Here are the lyrics for First Light:

First Light

First light fades and the wall of sound filters in

Wake up you and wake up me

We’ve some work to do

The coffee tastes wrong as the shadows nod in

A jerk shirk wonky time

The moment’s not here
The moment’s not there

As we flutter outside

I want a new time

As I’m waiting for the mood to change

But something’s holding back

There’s no more chance

There’s no more chance right here

To discuss the possibilities of all these lines

And all these fractured times

This unresolved space has circles of impact

Brought about by the stones

That I throw

That I throw

The impact brought about by the stones that I throw

That I throw

First Light

New Points of Convergence EP

The Present Climate

A new EP from Points of Convergence has just been released.

Featuring my vocals and words alongside the music of the synth production of Metascrawl, the 5 track EP ‘The Present Climate’ is a dreamy lo-fi synth/spoken-word look at the internal and external world we’re living in today.

Have a listen and download for whatever you feel here https://pointsofconvergence.bandcamp.com/album/the-present-climate

Final Poem ‘Blinded’

My submission to the call for final poems by  Enclave at Entropy Mag is up at the following link:

#finalpoem from Robert W. Monk

‘Blinded’ is a response to: “If the world were to end next week, what is the final poem you write, the final poem you give away generously, treacherously, genuinely, fearfully, necessarily, beautifully?”
