Kisses As prayers

Damp from the rain outside

And dirt under my nails

Hands shaking with fatigue

And there you are

Bare to me

Excuse the rough way I look at you

I’m elegant hunger

Except sometimes the sight of you

Overpowers me

Take you and pin down

This writhing hunger within

Because I’m supposed to be a furtive

Appendage but I’m a satyr,

A lustful pilgrim finding

Salvation between your quivering

Thighs and my kisses there

Are prayers

And I pray with such focus

That we will both see God.

Open Letters To Old Friends

Scrape away the how are yous

I miss you

Because there are a million shitty takes

And awesome things

Which I still want to turn around and share with you,

And sometimes taunting that hunger

Sours the blood

Without being destroyed by it

Because I don’t want to embarrass you,

With my boyish earnestness,

Or my belief that although there are points of resolute crappiness

And genial idiocy,

I’m still close to wonderful,

Amused and appalled,

By this world

But hold this close,

Some part of me serves you

Us

And in time,

Of time

By time

I can still be stunned by your smile,

We were, and are surrounded by

Secrets

But never to one another,

Never.

Small cup of quiet

Somewhere a bird sings

And I’ve found a small cup of quiet

Going to drink it

Slow wake up call to my soul

Pages written and now it’s not

Affectation knowing it will walk a

Path into the world

Lover asleep

Walk the dog

Things to do

Used to resent it

But I’m working on

Contemplating how

There’s pleasure in the smallest things

The thought, a biscuit,

Goes well with the quiet

Enjoy them both

Before the day begins,

Raw Velocity

What do we pretend to know?

The world moves so fast

And we’ve had new fears to contend with,

Being left on the wrong side of the road

Seeing everyone else having a good time,

And you’re still figuring out how

We found ourselves in this mess,

Pretending it was a party,

But it is a good world

If you can bear the raw velocity

Long enough to take a breath

Eyes burning

Hands callused

Heart hardened and opened

At the same time

All now is love

Smile as we tiptoe through the trees

Looking for a shadow to kiss beneath,

Solidly Off The Internet

As I’m now a creator, more of my time is spent developing projects and executing them. This takes time and attention away from the more immediate work which forms part of the blog content. So I’m not interacting as before, due to a desire to write better books.

Project Laughing Boy is waiting for an it and cover then will be out before the end of the year. Ideal for Christmas.

Project Asra is 20 pages longhand and some behind the scenes workshopping so it’s consistent, in the background and also plausible.

Project Crash in longhand is waiting for a second draft. Another research and some fleshing out but notes for second book are growing.

If you don’t know, my book Until She Sings is out now in paperback and ebook.

Update

I’ve finished Project Crash in longhand and have sent the next book to my editor. So I’m now venturing back into the wild man and asra stories with a new book.

It’s a matter of time, but more work is coming.
