Thanks. I've tacked on a few more poems on the end of my failing memory one, sorry, I should've made each one a separate post probably. Anyway, it's done me good to dig them out after so long.

Me, mum and Nonno

“Mum, Nonno’s in the garden sunbathing with a rhubarb leaf on his head.” I was at that tale-telling age.

Mum shrugged. “Well, tell him dinner’s on the table – and don’t mention the leaf, I’m...

IT

There’s Something in the corner of the room –
I sense it, lurking, crouching in the gloom.
If I look, then It goes,
But I know that It knows
That seeing It will bring about my doom.

“I’ll never grow old!” at sixteen, said I -

Clamour

Why do people shout so? Is it anger that they’re feeling
When they yell at nearby children, scream at partners in the street?
Have they lost their sense of hearing, do they think it...

Merciless Cats

A study in velvet, crouching low,
Grim Reaper to the sleeping shrew,
And even if they only knew
Quite what to do and where to go
To just avoid the glancing blow,
It will avail...

A Birmingham Childhood Remembered

Oh deeply missed, you Bull Ring, miscellany of stalls,
A youth remembered, clutching coat hem, wide-eyed.
Wigs, salami, gaudy rings, old shoes, the raucous...

Mocking dregs of what was left.

My pillow sodden, as I tossed and turned;
A prisoner tied...

I wish I was dead.

Well, this is uncanny, and talk about weird!
I was thinking of you just today!
My very first friend, and not dead as I’d feared
And your wife – is it Fiona or Faye?
