1982 - 1986

Yes, I lived in Metroland.

Rarely catching the clattering train
to Baker Street,
Instead, I sleuthed for shards
of uniqueness in neon lit,
merrie England villas
that bordered the careful park,
Drank Benskins in a smoky pub,
sought god in a redbrick church

And failed to find what I was looking for.

Through blind
wet windows,
a mist of lace;
identical houses
suspended in
the weightless world
of silken advertising.

Nails climb
pebble dash walls.

Key in the door.
A routine cranks
into operation.

Rules of behaviour
iron into compressed flesh.

Valium melts
in the throat.

Do not offend.

Alter ego

To live swathed by the textured
cloak of heritage.
Secure and sure.
Known to all
but one’s self.


To favour a consummation of life,
inter-twining the gossamer weft
of daily happenstance
with the warp thread of entity:
as ephemeral a dance
as motes on a sunbeam.

 Dear Angela,

Thank you for the party. It was fun - sometimes - but we shan't come again. Democracy: Where was she born? Well, now she's gone - but that's all Greek to you. So we're going it alone. Don't worry, we'll pay you back one day - and how!

Good luck! You'll need it. (No longer) Yours.
