some more poems
all written
in 4/3/4

***

#27: night sky #1

beneath the stars
on my back
I lay weeping

***

#28: night sky #2

A near full moon
surrounded
by wisps of cloud

***

#29: memory loss

I have learned much
forgotten
many times more

***

#30: discomfort

pigeon orgy
on the roof
I look away

***

#31: ruin

they closed the pub
years ago
left it to rot

***

#32: approaching dusk #1

the contrails sweep
in curved arcs
across the sky

***

#33: approaching dusk #2

storm clouds approach
thunder heard
no lightning seen

***

#34: a sunday afternoon

suddenly now
I feel sick
faint, my eyes weep

***

#35: afterwards

I sleep soundly
through the night
and through the day

***

#36: british summer time

went to the shops
it rained and
rained and rained and

***

#37: living room

there’s a spider
hanging there
waiting, waiting

***

#38: bank holiday weekend #1

sat beneath a
parasol
and did not move

***

#39: bank holiday weekend #2

hair wet with sweat
head throbbing
i cannot sleep

***

#40: an autobiography of my life until now

I was lonely
then I was
lonelier still

***

#41: september

the sun went in
the wind blew
early autumn

***

#42: in the park #1

a sausage dog
prancing by
grinning, grinning

***

#43: in the park #2

a pound a bag
by the pond
to buy duck food

***

#44: in the park #3

i put away
the rubbish
others had left

***

#45:

a small forest
of dead trees
all turned to bone

***

#46: beyond intransigence

if I can change
my own mind
you can change yours

***

#47: the catcher in the rye

I’d never read
this before
but now I have

***

#48: i

I feel so tired
all the time
old bones aching

***

#49: corrections

rewriting this
poem took
several hours

***

#50: in my pocket

a tiny scrap
of paper
containing this

***

#51: autumnal river scene #1

on the river
an egret
amongst the gulls

***

#52: autumnal river scene #2

fisherman’s boat
fisherman
fisherman’s dog
