Untitled – Kind of …

some kind of pain

some kind of joy

some kind of beauty

some kind of despair

some kind of life

……..

what’s it all about?

Flames of Desire

Another lust-filled homecoming poem – dedicated to my love ♥

your ravenous desire

sucks the air from my lungs

oh, our reckless desire

we are burning up

turn the flames up higher



feel the heat, the beat

keep the fire burning

that moment when we meet

let me feel your desire

…..

tonight, my love

I will have you

Clarity

only when we acknowledge

that we are all mad

will it all make sense

and

mysteries, contradictions

will no longer be

……..

life stands still

clarity achieved

Whose Rules

like shifting desert sands

rules keep changing

greedy corporates

keeping the leash short



work hard, be honest

play by the rules

it all comes to naught

they fuck you over



hung out to dry

despite playing fair

they don’t care

you still fucked

Some Kind of Pain

oh that

exquisite beautiful tragedy

giving birth to

amazing creativity

…..

nobody feels any pain

nobody feels any joy

…….

to feel joy

you must first experience pain

…….

or is it

the other way round?

Swamp Rock – Radio Show

Podcast of a radio show I presented on KSFM, a community radio station in Parys, The Free State, South Africa. A genre of music I affectionately call swamp rock – the purists might argue that I might have strayed from the specific confines of this genre, but that is after all my poetic licence 🙂 … enjoy the tunes. If you want me to post the detailed playlists for the shows please let me know.

The Road oft Travelled

travelling into my space

that road oft travelled

neither visitor or tenant be

just passing by



stopping to stare

donning spectacles of perspective

discovering what lies beneath

as I a passer-by be



dream or dead space?

haunted by conversations

of those who reside on yonder

neighbours they not be



in transit, not overnighting

reading what lies beneath

obligated to document

that others might believe
