in men’s toilets are men

in men’s toilets are men
who like to compare them self
to other men
‘mine’s bigger than yours’ they’ll say
and mostly
they are correct
their schoolboy smiles
their chests
like boasted balloons

them pavers

them pavers
I did no prep
dropped ‘em straight on the grass
to make the path
nature & men
they’re wonderful things
I still look
at the neighbor’s wife’s
undies
on their line
though

the neighbor I’d not spoken to

the neighbor I’d not spoken to
in 10 yrs
leaned over the fence
said ‘do yr want some pavers I’m putting a pool in?’
I said ‘yeah’ and laid some paths round
my veggie garden
and he gave me some mandarins from his mandarin tree
and I lent him my chisel drill
to break some concrete up

I look out the window

I look out the window
the wind’s blowing
I frown into the washing up of dishes
Springsteen’s singing ‘Reno’
I’m going into sadness
I don’t want to be
another pretentious Joe
leaving flowers
in every ending
couplet

put beer

put beer in the fridge
wait to 3 o’clock
play songs
sit with none other
write poems
with their zippers
down
& give life
to life

20-7-18

live alone
with the sun in morning
and the moon in night

read her poems
my eyes on her skin

forage among her leaves
my sense of discardment

find her

make for her a Temple
of bracken
pray there

how else
to love her?
