I love the rain. I want the feeling of it on my face.

Katherine Mansfield


as the tide of years

rubs the sand

against the bastion

of your pride


your certainty

your inviolate truths

as you succumb

again and again


as you choose

face over courage

arrogance over humility

as the very sap drains from you


secure in your safety

as the cotton wool familiars

bed downy nights with you

and those certain dawns


when the calendar

of your days

grows ever shorter

and even the sand, runs out


that bastion can join you

in your box

your succubus, your incubus

and mate for all eternity


and when you pass

and see them both

nestled there;

will your Soul cry?

Face Got in the Way

Oh you stupid face!!

What trouble you cause!!

If it weren’t for you

I could love


All your bloody rules

and stupid pride

they have me cornered,

helpless, quivering


Why won’t you let me?

My clenched teeth

pursed lips

and bags of tut-tut-tut


If I ripped you,

ripped you off,

might I at last

dance naked in the rain?
