Poetry - Hull By Laurenceaux.
Hull is not a rat-race.
Hull is a nice place.
Hull is not chav-town
Hull has thrice a crown:
a king's town.
Kingston Upon Hull;
full or Tigers, Robins and Airlie birds,
Poetry - I Love You in that Jumper By Catherine Scott
I love you in that jumper
The fitting is just right
It's not too long and it's not too tight
And the colour's not too bright.
I love you in that jumper
You look so snug and huggable
So gorgeous, warm and lovable
Poetry - Dandelion Wins! By Cathie McCarthy
I, the dandelion
Blowing in the gentle winds
Cascading on the spring air
Finding pastures new
Settled on April's wet soil
Waiting to start anew Read more...
Poetry - Matriarchy, or Suitable Male Heir Lacking By Ruth
Just a girl
running home after school.
Bounding up stairs in sensible shoes.
Be seen and not heard!
Wrestling Elders' expectations;
Not comprehending 'cultivation'. Read more...
Poetry A Yellow Ball By Mike Watts
Kneeling beside him
On the tiled floor,
My throat tightened.
This was it.
I buried my face
Into his neck.
That smell -
Old, arthritic loyalty:
Poetry - Dying Forests By Dayne Coyne
No life upon it
There are no futures for this world
Poetry - Lining Rhymes in Hell By Paul England
Back in 96
damn I lost my head
shit I fell apart
when I found a brother dead
Friends they sold me out
while fools they sold me short
well tell them fools I'm back
cos the devil won't be taught Read more...
Poetry Larkin 25 -The Hands of Time By Malcolm Wilson Bucknall
Etched and wrinkled by the winds,
Tormenting as they drift.
Elements of time have scarred
Faces of granite cliffs.
Whipped and lashed by angry crests
That leap up from the sea,
Faces of gaunt granite rocks
Grimace their misery. Read more...
Poetry Squid By Christy Hall
The hook still snagged in its alien-like gob,
I gut the squid, slob, laid to rest:
a rubbery slab, quick-death, done-job.
A squabble of tentacles, its own busy head crest.
Arrow-shaped head cut from hood cavity.
Next the beak, squid-man incommunicado.
His sea-words and song left to me, Read more...
Poetry - Larkin 25 - Love's Vigil By Brian Hodgins
Little old lady standing there
Eyes of blue and silvery hair
Pavement glistens with winter's frost
A vigil kept for the love you lost
He sailed away one early dawn
To break your heart, left to mourn
Dark curly hair, a smiling face
A lover's kiss, a last embrace Read more...
