Three Poems by Clive Gresswell




 

Aching:


the british love

of aching lawns

stretching out in

suburban paradises

aching to gardeners

the garden cities laze

criss-crossing patterns

in the pools of your

tracing lawns of aching

the british love to ache

for you're in lazy pools

lazy repossessions hint

that under the lazy pools

blood & sinew ache

the garden cities ache

paradises ache the british

love the lazy repossession

tracing lawns of aching

paradises ache under

the british love to garden

blood & sinew ache now

all the lazy repossessions.


 

Talk:


discourse

this curse

discuss

the wire

a bird

a noun

drown

 

discourse

discuss

this curse

distrust

all circle - all rust

 

a tree grows its limbs

the knotted logic of maths

descartes

lost in

thought

 

& if i never was

 

discourse

this curse

discuss

the sores

his discontent

destroy the algorithm of nouns

adjectives, metaphors, similes

a need to swallow whole this jagged

 

discourse

this curse

discuss

on the tip of tongue's rapid fire.




Rose:


rose - the tip

desperate quivering

bottled stench of dementia

 

bitterness - bend

a nightmare curtailing

treads of rotting flesh

 

new blow wind

capturing cortisone

rip jagged ice

 

time inhales

its monstrous vinegar

sweet honeyed particle passing time

 

it's an old romance

here on society's balcony

sea saw slaughter rests on hollywood bone.,
