Cool November day

Cool November day
His jacket drapes her shoulders
And love comes knocking

Wretched nights sleeps

Wretched nights sleep cheats
me of recovery
Dark rings under eyes

White Dust Ghosts* (Series)

waking the kraken
this irregular sonnet
of men and angels

childhood kiss 
the shadow of gypsophila 
in the wheel

blue sky rain
the sunshine leaks
from pavements

leaves begin to fall
this face too evolves 
from fish

bomber moon–
all those hiding places
within you

hee, ba, coo, sha
even the name suggests peace
Nagasaki anniversary

Alan Summers

*There are people who survived the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In Japanese, the atomic bomb survivors are known as Hibakusha, some are still alive and share their experiences in the hope of peace and the abandonment of nuclear weapons. This is the 68th anniversary of atomic bombing on Nagasaki, August 9th 1945

My fucking car keys

my fucking car keys
here one minute gone the next
a senior moment
