Scraping the barrell for seratonin.

i wanted to say

i wanted to say i wanted to say i wanted to say

                             that i love you

but i don't really know what it means
and that maybe i am incredibly clever
for getting this far and knowing that i don't know

or maybe my brain will never work like yours...

Halfy Halfy: Seasonal Allegory

This metal world has lost its poles;
another snow flake melts in your breath.
You see the winter inside you
as flames concertina you into the water.
Acrylic licks alter your future;
acrid desperation echoes on the tongue
like the bitter taste of saccharine.

Half +3 Necrophilia?  

Wednesday, December 24, 2008


Fell in love with a girl;
shiny black eyes
and killer heels.
She could be my life partner
if I rescue her from
cellophane hell.
She's always drawn and tired.
She opens up the fridge
and says
I really fancy a cold one.

Fluid strokes of black italic;
she took her time over every letter.
Often quoting someone else's words.
"Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there..." 

Summer '94

Where are they now?

It's always interesting wondering at the story behind an inscription in a book. Who wrote it to whom? And do they still see one another...

Half Sonnet: Hands  

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Many hands make light work

your hands can't work anymore.
Every day I see mine change;
toughened, calloused, cracked with age.
And every day I see yours again;
living on through mine.

Don't let their hands hurt you child.

On the Rocks

On the Rocks

Missing teeth and open wounds;
on the rocks
is where you'll be.

Breathing deep and staggered moves.
One more for the road.

Lady Catherine
takes it on board.

This ship has passed into the night.

A Wire Broken

Eyes branded into my soul;

a wire broken.
Fuses from your hands;
this one's gonna bruise.

Half sonnet: Polyphant

Many elephants
University of Elephants
Various Freudian phantasies
Fantasy University
Polyps from Hants.

Frog pool.

So it goes in Polyphant

Interesting place names are pretty rife in Cornwall. Polyphant, near Hicksmill, is a pretty good one. My boyfriend has been considering it as a band name and the possibilities foe related word-play are limitless... with members considering names like polygon, polyfilla etc! Just after originally posting this one I met a man from Polyphant! He said it is the Cornish for Frogpool Pol = Pool and Lyphant= Frog.

Pearl Harbour  

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

A tide washed out

A tide washed out and revealed
beneath it bodies.
Rolled up like henchmen
guarding an underwater universe.
Their colours said welcome
against the iron gravel
that mimics sand.
Their cries leave a scar
in the ocean floor.
And little jewels of ash
like starry nights;
burned into the water
and its collective memory.

I wrote this one after a dream I had involving a tide washing out and leaving behind it bodies. In the dream these bodies were left after many suicides had taken place from a horseshoe shaped cliff resembling a bay on the South coast of Cornwall between Mevagissey and Pentewan. I think I prefer the poem without any explanation as it leaves it open for interpretation. I think it implies a tragedy related to water, perhaps Pearl Harbour or more recently the tsunami in Asia.

Christmas cheer

Half + 2

Hark the sepulchral organ grinds
out of tune and into the night.
I have this disease that mimics
love. I can recognise it in you.

I tried to record every event
that happened in minor detail
in case I needed them later.
I tried to fix every broken number

but hearts are more your style.

life called  

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Ain’t it just the way

Life called today
and apologised for getting
in the way sometimes.
Her husband is flirtatious
and easy.
Sometimes he makes
friends too quickly and keeps them
away from Life.
He says he does it to protect them.
Life says sorry

she gets in the way sometimes.

Ring Ring

Once there was a Will
but he couldn’t find a way.
And then he asked me to marry him.
And I said ‘I dunno’
and felt confused for a few days.
So I called someone for help
but then I answered the telephone.
So I have discussed it
with myself
and I think I might do it,
but I won’t publish it on myspace
and there won’t be an announcement
at the table
and we won’t be exchanging rings.
