Rent Web Summer Hats Psycho-Georgraphy
A Cart Load of Olives Tight Air  


Silent gestures
just out of reach
of each other

__daffodils lean
__toward the light

overgrown hedges
cutting privet
for pea–sticks

__voices louder now
__drown in chardonnay

bleep far off
bleep a digger
bleep reversing

__fuck psycho–geography
__explore inner landscapes

a desk
in the back row
another etching

__coloured bruises
__on dad's arms

found safe, the child
slapped and held
at the same time

__looking for a rainbow
__in the night sky

early dawn
pheasants feeding
in the stubble

__the first bus
__its lights still on

sun and moon
echo each other
above the cooling towers

__meltdown! the sign says
__destabilised shoppers collide

revellers teeter
along the icy pavement
in slinky numbers

__a tinsel serpent
__winding round a yucca

so many shades of rust
on the big
metallic apple

__each tree sprouts
__a different green

the darkest leaves
stand behind
the whitest blossom

__a grey spring day –
__ignoring my house's dust.
