Icaro cayendo / falling Icarus

All the trees

are brown

and the

carpet is grey.

I went


a splash

on a summer’s day…

Elevenses with Igor

Rites of Dionysus, 4

Rite of Spring on: unseasonably

Pleasing accompaniment while

Sitting daringly naked with towel

To hand and an eye on my genitals

Ensuring they are not overexposed

To the sun.

Having been burnt before like this.

When the Rite is done

(less than thirty minutes)

Back indoors to lunch on cider and crackers,

And, gently creaming my largest organ.

It is the centenary of this Rite.
