All the people shouting,
As loud as they can be,
Still their words
They make no sense
Not to me.
Not to me.
I listen past their bragging
About how 
they're the best,
All I know
it's not my world
and that
I failed the test.
I don't hear you talking
Your voice so very quiet,
Sit with me
my love
we'll have a silent riot.

Capsules… I miss him today but I can't explain that to you. How there is so much oxygen in the world I cannot comprehend, but still there is one tiny balloon-sized bubble apart. And that's him. It soared up long ago and will forever float throughout the planet and beyond, taking my air with it.
I miss him today.


Rain,
Rain,
I love it,
Drip
Drip, drip,
Dripping
Down,
Gentle chiding
To huddle inside
with you.

I embrace dyslexia...

A chalk grid on the floor,
Been there since I was a kid
Divisive fuckery
Are you this or that?
The lucky ones fit into the big square,
the happy norm
the rich
successful
Because they can
No shape for me
That I can understand
I'm painting my own with words
Can you see them?
Can you?

The loneliness of the human race

Hot box,
reinforced steel,
keep them out,
keep it in,
my metal world
same as yours
Imagine if one day
we left the box behind.
(written after a few pints)

Know that when I stare without answering
it's because we are trains passing one another,
and all I can hear is wind.
Autumn is...
Leafy red,
Breath in and hold
yellow smudges
pale gold
Lingering warmth
something coming
from my toes
a gentle humming
Let go your breath,
Release the dark
Come and catch me
chilly park
