PHANTOM

PHANTOM

IN THE HALF LIT WORLD,

OF STUMBLING TOWARDS SLEEP,

I FEEL YOUR HAND ON MY ARM…

YOUR PRESENCE IS AS REAL

AS A PHANTOM LIMB!

YOUR TOUCH IS RE-ASSURING,

LIKE A FAVOURITE SHIRT,

OR BELOVED ANGEL…

 

THE PROBLEM IS :

YOUR TOUCH PAINTS A SMILE,

AND I AWAKE WITH A START…

AND THEN THE TOUCH HAS GONE!

AND I AM SO ALONE…

LIMBLESS AND VACANT.

THOUGHT IT WAS A LICHTENSTEIN, TURNS OUT IT WAS A MR.BABES CREATION, THE WORDS ORIGINALLY WERE ‘NO MEANS YES?’ BUT I EMPHATICALLY DISAGREE WITH THAT NOTION. I WAS COPYING OTHER STYLES JUST TO SEE WHERE IT WENT, BUT I’M UNCOMFORTABLE COPYING PAINTINGS, IT BECOMES PASTICHE… AND IN THIS CASE ITS A PASTICHE OF A PASTICHE OF A PASTICHE, OVER A COMIC BOOK VERSION WHICH PASTICHES REAL LIFE…

SO I’M LOST AS TO WHERE THE REALITY LIES…

BUT I HAVE A REAL CANVAS.

HALF-LIFE

DON’T KNOW HOW TO BE ME,

WITHOUT YOU.

IT’S LIKE I’VE LEARNT THE ROLE,

BUT FORGOTTEN THE SCRIPT…

I WALK THROUGH LIFE

LIKE IT’S A REHEARSAL,

IT WILL COME INTO FOCUS,

WITH PRACTICE.

 

BUT THE WEEKS GO BY,

AND I’M WELL VERSED…

BUT THE EDGES ARE SHARDS,

OF EMPTINESS AND UNLOVE.

BEFORE MY LIFE WAS STRUCTURED,

BY LOVE, COCOONED IN A FIXED SPOT,

THE SPOT WHERE YOUR SOUL

MIRRORED MINE,

AND OUR LOVE WAS ETERNAL.

 

ETERNAL?

ANGLING TIMES

WENT FISHING WITH MY BROTHER JASON AND NEPHEWS JOINED US FOR A WHILE. FOUR HOURS WITHOUT A BITE, BUT A PLEASANT WAY TO WHILE AWAY THE HOURS.

FED MAGGOTS TO A VERY TAME ROBIN… AND GOT TO UNTANGLE MY REEL A GOOD FEW TIMES.

OH WELL NO FISH WERE EVER IN DANGER OF ME CATCHING THEM.

THANK GOD!
