Picture: You can pretend. Barbie commits suicide by hanging herself.


A man with a wooden leg

Sits down to read a book.

The book is not about men,
Or wooden legs,
Or sitting down.

Not all books are.

Some books are about women,
Fleshy legs,
Or gymnastics.

But not all books are.
This one isn't.

This book is about rocket science.
It has big friendly writing
And lots of pictures.

And there is an interactive section.

You can pretend
That you are an American,
And you can shoot
Laser-guided rockets
At unprotected
Third World civilians,
In the war on terror.

It is good to interact.

Picture: You can pretend. Iraq War 2003. Shock & Awe. George Bush Jnr.

Picture: Platonic relationship with chocolate. Plato with early chocolate bar.


She loves chocolate,
But she never
Eats it.

Chocolate is for
Looking only.

But if you are careful,
You can stroke
The chocolate wrapper
Lightly
Without getting
Pregnant.

Fleeting caresses
Such as this

Nourish the soul.

Casualty

A red-haired woman
With smudged makeup
Is brought into
The Royal Shropshire Hospital
In Shrewsbury.

Her head is bleeding,
One of her eyes
Is closed tight
And swollen,
And several of her teeth
Are missing.

Nurse: Name?
Woman: Patricia Alice Lampton.
Nurse: Date of birth?
Woman: 23rd September 1972.
Nurse: Married?

Woman: No. Traffic accident.

What is the answer?

What is the answer?
What is the solution?


Perhaps there is no answer.

Perhaps there is no solution.
Perhaps there is just the question
And the laughter
And we must simply content ourselves
With the interrogative process
Of becoming.

Aquarian elf girl

The elf angel of Ardingly
In West Sussex,
Is sixteen years old,
Smells of flowers
And looks like liquid sex
In jeans.

Her voice sounds like
A fairy bell
Heard behind waterfalls.

She doesn't walk;
She flows
Sinuously
Like a reed
In the breeze,
Too slim for friction.

Her coursework
Is averagely badly written,
And she wears her school tie
Unacceptably loose.

She doesn't use a mobile phone,
Or an iPod,
Doesn't watch television,
Won't eat meat
Or anything cooked
In a microwave oven,
And she sleeps
Ten hours a day,
Next to a basket of crystals,
Saying that that is her main work:
She has dreams to look after.

But notice her eyes.
What colour are they today?

Look at her eyes
When she is sitting
Next to her mother.
Her eyes are older
Than her mother's,
But they dance more.

Her lifestream is old,
Yet young,
Experienced,
Yet forever fresh.

A few boys have kissed her,
And many girls.

And they all say the same thing:
Her lips flutter
Like eyelashes,
Her tongue darts
Like a lizard,
And she tastes of Jellybabies
With a hint of lemon
And something else.

It is the something else
Which people remember,
And it is the something else
Which people look forward to.
