New Recruit

The lane, illuminated by the only flicking light
That holds at bay the dim in such a way no others might,
By day does watch commuters, in a blur, pass blindly through-
But only those worth noting are the ones that pass by night.

Fontana Rossa

And In my wake, a stream obscene
Does stain the pavement ‘neath my shoes,
Like Neptune drowning Travertine-
From whence it flows I have no clues.

Machine of Flesh

A wretched man
Atop grey walls,
Inside a hollowed room.
With holes in roof
The flooding rain
Hides views of tombstone bloom.

Jungle Yard

Passing through the glass, we moved
And watched through glorious eyes.
To see the beast in midst of feast
He cared not for us spies.

And once complete he looked our way
A grin from ear to ear,
Caught on the breeze he pounced at trees
To see our faces fear.

The winter breeze-
An awful blow.
Raging rivers
Frozen fast,
In the distance,
Valleys vast.

Traveler’s Camp

A holiday,
Where families
from far and wide
can rest.
Their caravans
of precious goods,
Collected from
their quest.

Is your food plotting against you?

Like a rash, Fast Food chains spread over our landscapes, while cling film and candy wrappers build their own islands out at sea. 14 billion pounds of carbon dioxide and methane gas are released by food farming factories, poisoning our air and water supplies. Keeping us docile. Carcinogenic chemicals are pumped into foods then labelled as ‘fresh’ or ‘no added colours’ to trick you into digesting death…
