What is perfect and complete?
Delicacies, meat, cheese, 
The foodie speaks conquest and fantasy,
But a cancer progresses, spreads rapidly.
Tragedies of vanity, then agony,
Then bankruptcy, former life a dream.
Fantasies now of revenge, or mercy,
Meaning, offers of a promise of peace,
I can eat simple meals and still be.
Human being, like a clever machine.

Portend, ship,
Potato, chip.
I like my broker,
If he buys the dip.

Paper, mind racing;
April, outside rain;
Days, time, pain.
Trial, minor inheritance,
Inside raging, vain,
Water droplet pacing.

Lies, decadence,
Left in the sunset.
Am I adept?
Think, look back.
Flies in everything,
Trying anything,
I, tried everything.

Trial, cherry picking,
Many years,
Their meaning?
A small committee,
Press, briefings:
Ideas discrete,
Their leanings.

Where is the time for healing?

In the car, cutting corners,
Misnomer, or misfortune;
Of emotion, a disclosure
All I feel is the moment,
Brushing motion and smell of burning horses.

Of importance:
Kings and clowns,
With benefit of doubt,
One is better without.

Beauty, all its mystery,
Maybe this is all a dream,
Belief instinctively,
Anger, or misery,
Or is it grief within me?

Imagine living, symptom-free,
Imagine, breathing with relief,
Instead coughing and wheezing,
Sleeping with vivid dreams,
While sleeping in the street.

A body smeared with honey,
Head to feet, conceit,
Declared supreme,
Yet not even complete.

To write irate,
Like Ivy failed,
The time it takes,
Is flies to drakes.

Reveal beneath the cape, water,
Fantastic I can see the shape.
Father should I peel the grapes?
I only question the time it takes.

Coastal Landscapes, plum, and dates,
Noble Magnates, all things awake,
Ocean to space, 
Poems to plays,
Stone, earth and clay.
Snow, October to May, 
A local band still plays.

Trees of lime,
Dreams of life,
Hearts pleading:
Fields of rice,
Ears of a beast,
Bright green, to the eyes.

What is fleeting?
What is right?
What the audience likes,
What God would decide,
Like what is meat, What is me,
But I need to survive.

Should one be horrified of nothing?
Hook, shore, line, cheeks blushing,
Sorry I lack a lively career,
Goodbye, deary;
My life is lovely.

They say no rush,
Speak nothing of time and boxes;
Wishing they were ski jumping,
Even if it begets evil things.

One hundred years fishing.
Whether or not I am punished,
God, brother, life, iron will,
I watched the flowers flourish.
Like drumsticks desire a skin,
Find, then are tossed aside:
Tomorrow is unprovided,
Yet I will.

Last living lemming,
No house to live in,
No Chandeliers;
Next exhibit, Next exhibition, 
Spoke of past tense in English,
Fluent in other languages;

An Eccentric Mystic, 
Poetic Lyrics,
and their beginnings;
One carves caverns,
Of all manner of rock,
What matters of master?
The afterthought.

By the tendril, sunset felt,
Like weapons in my belt, 
Chemistry I can't question,
Clarity in my bedtimes.
So lovingly I make expressions,
Like, at weddings,
Desperate for marriage;

By the ending, a farewell.

Canon roar, castles go,
Grab ahold, gravel road, 
A rabbit grows, 
As does his habits,
A hobbit grows,
Shrinking his jacket.
Life a la mode, 
What matters most,
When paddling boats?
Loneliness,
A partner to boast, 
Havoc that leaves you alone.

For Mayor, for payment,
For wages, forced labour,
For most run four bases,
For patience, no basis.

Road changes like young brains,
Record-breakers, the role favours;
Horses race toward old age,
and the coast as it fades;

Full weight behind the sail,
Like regulation of the state,
Your neighbour, Your patron, 
Afford bravery for faith,
While some live, agate,
Judge races from inside of a cage.

Single planet of written language,
Little matters of bigger battles:
Mirror dragons, bitter captains,
Speaking lingua franca to a pier.

'They see not what is near'
Between fits of passion, screams,
Film seen backward, guarantees, 
Hears nothing but laughter.

A little boating, hidden motives, 
Net cast far and wide, rod and line, 
Bits of fishing where the hook is life,
We are the bait and our path decided.

A single holding, hot and high, 
One's Lifetime amidst the roses,
A river flowing, ascots and wine,
Single toll trip last night, no guilt. 

No guild and no scrill.
No landmarks or sites.
Gifts of civil clothing,
Met with concerning eyes,
In the yards at night,
Burning, the whole thing.

The inner coding of my heart of little noting,
A bit of doting, conflicts of the coal bin,
Am I composing, or composting with silicosis,
Wasting away my time with simple nothings,
Served of cold beer unnoticed with business going.

Books opens, pictures,
Bulldozer, fixtures,
Foot soldier of bitterness,
Do good moments wither?

Pull over, hood open,
Notice you could use a push,
Look to the wool-grower,
Whose home you turned to dust,
Hopeless with his heritage lost.

Is a cactus cost-effective?
Is an organ, mostly defective,
Less than nothing?
Ask a cleric, politician or elective,
At best, they repeat what they must.

Devils hand, write of ginger,
Stink of gin and linger.
Age over, question a gain,
Family name a gander. 
A snake is hissing, of the land,
No matter how one pounds a fist,
Shaking the sand, he stands in place.
Devil, how are you so ginger,
Limbless with skin akimbo,
No kin to speak for,
Yet no wizard can seal your fate?

Storm the earth, Storm the sea,
Arrive in myth, the people be,
Not given bronze, not given sons,
Living gaunt outside a lodge.
Singing swans, singing songs,
Zinc, gold, silver, iron, copper,
In hefty sums, no bitten tongue.

Dearth they arrive, murder at night,
No allies, wyrms or fires to fight.
Death they provide.
