One Blue Day

what I write.
what I like.

The very talented Suzannah Showler’s debut collection nearly took my head off with its intelligence and memorability." The sky’s an homage to planned obsolescence.
It’s rocking a case of feature creep, clouds

like drool blooms filling a pillow faster
than you can say: Careful or your face

might get stuck that way. This cloud leans in
like an unfinished limb activating a bus door.”

"Time keeps its watch upon your pulse;your pulse may keep a watch on time,
so let this be upon your wrist:
hold up, against its perfect rhyme,that which is slant, and off, and else.”

Some poems by the talented Norah Franklin:

Put your arms behind your back

And I’ll weave mine through those gaps

between your elbows and your ribs

Because this might all be for you

There can never just be one alone

there are always two (or more)

in every word 

You can close your eyes (or not)
