Neutral mind draped across grimy windows,
Got to be cocks and screwdrivers
Ducking and diving across unexpected surprises
Policies of strange girls from Blackpool
and Brief Encounters recycled in Staleybridge
Lumps of snot tubes or mask
Red sore skin rubbed to rust
We meet in hospital corridors,
Platforms of abandoned train stations
It was 50 yea...

A caged bird in Wetherspoon's
Flashing jazz through messy mental maps
On skull-grey stepped buildings
Where books and more books glimpse
of measured escape
Over corridors blocking ways out
edited down stopping feelings
of revenge pleading eases
enchanted in a warped love
Messy murder, mental madness
Who is free and who is caged?
Too many hang-up...

Crimson dust for a forgotten man,
The nuances of place emerge
All of us are wearing lace-up shoes
In this we are the same,
And other ways
That are hidden.
In screaming, panicked pain swells
Help may be
The only thing I can offer,
As well as my ear
And my time.
Bleeding the sky with your cosmic clouds
That shelter my dark matter

Stockport town is upside down
Blue skies, regret for the river that was
I caught your cobble-stones with conviction
Voices from the youth skimming across the waters
Love is underfoot, under wet sand
Throw stones at the past; take care of the present; enjoy a future.
Red streaks blurring wistful meanderings
Lose yourself in the labyrinthine city

Tense reticence, the kiss of limbs
for Hanging’s biggest fan
Free and easy
Scattered island red
Poll blood hundred to the dozen
The long, elastic tug-of-war of love
Forgive me if I did not understand:
Lord, may my faith grow ever stronger
A voice cracking on the radio,
Giving some sort of verification
That the static’s home.
I know that it’...

Barely living through the dance of night
Tiger-stripe trapeze in savage growl
Swiss diligence with eerie eyes
From corridors of incandescence
To alleyways of guttered candles
Room with nothing but lonely memories
Ghosts, horror, the present, the past.
Everything changes. Nothing changes
Memories and wishes.
Two children play in the ashes

Intact, these children dance and sing
Forward and back.
Forget hatred; make love,
but don't whore
Don't tell me the truth
Or look at the meanings
In between words
Summer is a salad of water
People of all kinds
too many to remember -
I see new words in new directions
All new faces and self-reflections
A pill to ...
