I welcome interest in our ‘poetryfeasting’ site content and would happily create ideas for classroom teaching/sharing aids for poetry at a negotiable price.

we number
billions
an impending
catastrophe
a mass of uniquenesses
bumped
blended
forged
and strangled
into
a global currency
individually impotent
but unafraid
to randomly
express

in
a selfie

prefer situations
concreted
for reader pleasure
with
extended metaphoric moments
that deliver
life’s complexities
obliquely
palatably
fully
but my inclination
remains with
the concise
the succinct
the glimpse
because
that is how the light falls
in this domain
in my allocation

again
by morning

still unable to confirm

with authorized denial
as

expose
polit speak enthusiasm
for business as usual
and

each summer’s end
my brothers and I
would resurrect our football -
preparation of special needle,
dipped in glycerine,
affixed to a bicycle tyre pump
foreshadowed inflation
it was then ready
for another winter’s kicking

History
documents
global
human interaction
records efforts
to maintain
equilibrium
with negotiated
peace agreements
pacts
plans
but
even unread
children know

love
is unconditional

songbird me
alone on a branch
of my family’s tree

inherited songs
contemporary tunes
seeks permanent audience

slave to currency
is genial reward
