Pigeons in a shitty hole
Pecking at Macdonald's polystyrene
Bent over each other
Breaking up

Friday, 26 June 2009

Car noise wipes my ears
It's like the sea, faraway
I press my face into the grass
Itchy mist

Wednesday, 24 June 2009

The bed groans with my breathing
I hear the springs inside moving
I hug the bed and wish it was someone

Tuesday, 23 June 2009

Two picked daisies;
Little old ladies on my windowsill
There are 22,000 children outside

Monday, 22 June 2009

I will complete 14 tasks today
The old man will walk across the park

Sunday, 21 June 2009

Spattered swirls
On a Deep Blue Sea
A boat
On sifted mist

Saturday, 20 June 2009

Cabbage Whites
From water
A cloud of birds;
Black flies against the sky

Wednesday, 17 June 2009

Buildings are dead
Trees are alive

Tuesday, 16 June 2009

It's black and white comic strip rain outside
And I settle into my book

Monday, 15 June 2009

47 seagulls in The Meadows
All approaching me...

Saturday, 13 June 2009

Necks extended
Two swans in flight
Damp soily smells; and
Green all around my eyes

Friday, 12 June 2009

Seven moles on a barbed wire fence
Roadwork smoke
And Lady Gaga
7.53 in the morning

Thursday, 11 June 2009

Fluffy grey balls
With beaks and tails
And feet you cannot see

Wednesday, 10 June 2009

Daylight made faint by the corridors and closed windows
Lifts me from my sleep

Tuesday, 9 June 2009

Icky yucky sour stuff running down the back of my throat

Sunday, 7 June 2009

Duck silhouette;
On the silver

The pain
The crying
Cracked hands

Friday, 5 June 2009

A red hole in my skin

Thursday, 4 June 2009

Spots of white sheep against a green field

Wednesday, 3 June 2009

Arrested their hearts
And stilled the air in their lungs

Tuesday, 2 June 2009

Pulled apart by long fingered hands
Clouds like cauliflowers
Packed up in a box
The eyes he makes are real.
Diamond dust water
Freezes and falls
Cherry blossom swirling
My feet slap against the tarmac
Apples falling sideways
Frisbees in the air
The sun lifts the dew from The Meadows.
