On the Shieling Lawn

End of Palm Mystery
Case closed post infinitum
Time for me hols
Refuel the battered keys
‘BFN—TTFN’: o F f
Formalities observed:
Put out blazing cat
Left in empty milk bottles
Turned up thermostat
Opened all windows and doors
Counter-counter espionage
Drones disguised as flies
Naff squiggly lampshade
Armed up to the teeth
And don’t forget
leave a smoking cadaver
on the shieling lawn


Get cracking on now
—that’s better
old Hobbits die

(hahahaha) hard

Royal Navy Robe
without a belt (or hat):
flapping & dangling
around my chaps
like tippets or
Tom Baker’s scarf
In Doctor Who used to

(the gown not the belt)

looking quite dishevelled, I suppose
two way mirror crack’d

don’t dare to look
if I were in your shoes—
think with a long head

might it not put you off your
elevenses and/or twelves’.’

They cut off my bard
Victim of facial abuse
Overcame survivor guilt
Takes just one drop—
Eine Augenblickchen

The question popped up
castdown eyes analysed
meditated anthracite
its pros and cons smother out
elephantine silences
‘Each one counts’
‘yes, of course it does, each
And every one counts’


Vive la resistance
No can do mentality
Obstacular bluff
