Cool November day

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

Eva Brookes

Wretched nights sleeps

Wretched nights sleep cheats
me of recovery
Dark rings under eyes

My fucking car keys

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

Library cafe

Library cafe-
we swap lost key stories
as my coffee cools

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

Counter, baby mouse

Counter, baby mouse
Crunching on dry spaghetti
Cute, and then I screamed

What's left is now right

What's left is now right
Sans serif font, extra gaps
Facebook's fresh changes

You will not stain me

you will not stain me
claim my mind, use up my time
that's all you're having

A moody sunset

a moody sunset
precursor to sweet morning
long distracted night

Bittersweet trigger

bittersweet trigger
textbook, the chain reaction
breathe in Frank Ocean
