out of cupboard love;
he wanted God
to love him alone.

For A Longer Life

and clearer skin,
with lower stress, try new!
long term unemployment.
As best used by monks
and mendicants.

In The Age Of Capitalism And Television

the well groomed
self made rich
pay one another
even more than before
to be seen on the screen
by the poor, who
are delousing
each other.

That is how sanitoria
used to be run.
Who needs asylum?

'To Fail Elegantly

is a greater success
than to have to succeed
and never have to admit to failure.
In your élan you will learn more
about yourself and know yourself
beyond the definition of others...
your self-definition will shape
how others see you...  that is why
failure is more successful than success.'
 - Quentin Crisp

Jews pray
'Hear O Israel
the Lord is our God
the Lord is one',
Scientists prove
to destruction
their god is none.

Humanity is the agent
of both deities.

My Elderly Laptop

tells me each time
it starts that I am
'in touch with tomorow'.
I feel I would be better
being friendly with today.

I Very Much Admire

people who complain about their tiredness
for the strength in their complaining.

In Zero Gain

frigid family values
profit matches loss,
goading children
into futile futures.

The Quiet House

The clock ticks
the tap drips,
both at different speeds.
Two friends sit apart
in private musings.

Clichés Often Pass

as banter, verbal stroking.
Rarely are they so. They
are more likely to be
and nothing else to do.

is the process
of losing the chips
on your shoulder
whilst leaving
the sawdust in your eye.
Better self esteem
through hypocrisy.

The Inconsistencies

of others reassure me-
they help me feel calmer
about my own.

Time Chooses Few

to be kind to, suffering
is an integral part of life.
With the end time is
infinitely generous.

He replied:

For Sale On Ebay

-one old soul.
Has been half-way
to hell and back,
unwanted gift.
No reserve. Supplied

with shadow.

Treasure Lives

where the heart lies.
Moth and rust
make honest dust.

When Hollywood

remakes the story of Job
the lead actor's teeth
will shine through
the squalor, as aptly
as the happy ending.

Revolutionary Zeal

is angst for the future.
Youths express it best,
for not knowing
what has been-
or what is to come
when their angst passes.

lodge themselves
in the tightest places
in the landscape
and survive;
nature's fly tipping.

Education In Feudal Times

was limited to preparing youths
to rule or to serve.
For life to be fit for sharing
it had the be a life beyond power.
