Noah

Music, dance, dialogue and contemporary legacies;
Of the authentic African theatre with the blues of love,
Come to me my lover and let me take you home.

Come to me like 'Abibigromma' and the 'Oguaa Fetu Afahye',
For my love to you is like a fair-coloured middle-aged lady.
Come to me my love,
For you are the Chief Executive on my love;
And i will lead you on with my African beauty.

Lady button-eyes

When the busy day is done,
And my weary little one
Rocketh gently to and fro;
When the night winds softly blow,
And the crickets in the glen
Chirp and chirp and chirp again;
When upon the haunted green
Fairies dance around their queen -
Then from yonder misty skies
Cometh Lady Button-Eyes.

Through the murk and mist and gloam
To our quiet, cozy home,
Where to singing, sweet and low,
Rocks a cradle to and fro;
Where the clock's dull monotone
Telleth of the day that's done;
Where the moonbeams hover o'er
Playthings sleeping on the floor -
Where my weary wee one lies

Dedication To Lily.....(An Ex Student Of Mine May She Rest In Peace)

She was only 23
When she passed away
Just this weekend gone

I remember her
When she was young
Use to teach her
As a child

She was so small
But full of life
She made me want
To do more with my life

Her energy was boundless
Her love immense
She was and will be
Remembered by all
Who loved her?
Close to their heart

Impressively Dressed

Economically,
They have kept themselves detached.
Preferring instead,
To pick up paychecks...
With a determination,
To keep themselves impressively dressed.
Entertained and free of stress.

Economically,
They have kept themselves detached.
Preferring instead,
To pick up paychecks...
With a determination,
To keep themselves impressively dressed.
Entertained and free of stress.

And yet,
Expectations they keep are high and demanding.
With hand outs to leech as taught.

Infinitely Different Ways

Reading the Apocrypha, speculating why Church
Fathers said young Jesus taught scribes while
rejecting the content of his lessons delineated
in the Arabic Gospel; did they realise only
vague mysteries would survive?

Enjoy reading how Maria cured ills with the water
of Jesus’ bath, how He explained Aleph-Beth to
ignorant teachers - the Bible Scribes knew they
could only get away by presenting not too
incredible incidents

Using subjective criteria to decide what would make
the flock subside before religious power; I also devise
my own criteria for choosing that which would make
my life a work of art, ignoring pedagogues’
restrictions because

Expectation and belief can create anything - I put
my trust in all things that increase freedom, beauty

COUGAR

I NEED SOME AIR

EVER SINCE YOU SHOWED ME

BOYS ONE THIRD YOUR AGE

Timeless Gesture

a thumb up sign reveals the pleasant stay of warm
heart, emptied in the pasture of care, where the spirit
of wonder begins to settle down in the bosom
tears of joy and happiness bestowed on the lasting
arms of smile of the soul

touch my dear heart the arrogant fingers of my
youth, capture the knight of the wind, as it paddle
on, out from the wealth that comes in the mature
shield of the past, a cream of the crops you
empathize, of the beginning time, we kiss

make my dear brave heart to nestle my feet in the
ground, the bastion of everything that holds my pious
of the heart has now, take the springs of moving on
the final moment of a great victory of my cause; as
if it takes wonder to captivate the captain of my soul
that bond and a hope of the timeless gesture of lifted
spirit in the pendulum of wonderful pedestal, I conquer

Prayer

Echo of the clocktower, footstep
in the alleyway, sweep
of the wind sifting the leaves.

Jeweller of the spiderweb, connoisseur
of autumn’s opulence, blade of lightning
harvesting the sky.

Keeper of the small gate, choreographer
of entrances and exits, midnight
whisper travelling the wires.

Seducer, healer, deity or thief,
I will see you soon enough—
in the shadow of the rainfall,

in the brief violet darkening a sunset—
but until then I pray watch over him
as a mountain guards its covert ore

William Blake

To Nobodaddy

Why art thou silent & invisible
Father of jealousy
Why dost thou hide thyself in clouds
From every searching Eye

Why darkness & obscurity
In all thy words & laws
That none dare eat the fruit but from
The wily serpents jaws
Or is it because Secresy
gains females loud applause

Abstract Self

I am molecule

I am a ball of paper

I am a thought passing itself off as

A feeling


I am pretending to be a coat stand

'Under cover'

I am a small insignificant sheet of toilet paper

I am an air freshner

My smell is ambiguous

Relevance is a matter of individual preference to the subject
