I'm a cinder cone turned caldera,
an empty plot of land -
planning permission was a long, long fight.
I'm trying to face the music but every time I look
it's too quiet to hear
and I'm striving to be
as the fragments of my mind spiral away
and the ink blots on my collarbones
spread to stains

Absolute Zero
How do I make words happen when every time I approach that core my feelings slip from my hands like wet soap
and the tighter I grasp, the faster it falls.
So humour becomes detritus, the plug in my crater lake;
and I become a caldera.
With volcanoes at my rim,
and the scars of prehistoric lava flows,
and a deep, deep ocean.
I show my therapist the jet skis parked at my shore,
and the tranquil fishermen,
and I hope she won't ask how very cold it is at the bottom.

Yet another melodramatic Final Poem
When did my words abandon me? My pencil flipped from my palm and colour came from my fingertips and it
them all

I used to be a blacksmith, wordsmith, except it was so natural, so gentle, like milk and honey spilling from my mind.
Oozing, leaking, bleeding emotive imagery. I could make your mind go places with but a hint.
Listen: remember pools of orange lamplight with the hand of a lover?
Remember lines and lines of text or powder or splits in the skin of what it means to be
Remember the whiplash
of my changing rhythms?
Listen: I once could make the voice in your head do whatever I wanted. Like this: we're having a conversation now.
How's the weather?
How's your mother?
How's this for an attempt at befriending words again?

My Words are Greater Than Quality Control
Words used to
from my fingers;
but now my pain
is worth
You think suicide will change you
It leaves you a ghost;
And something is gone;
And something has come;
but after months
your pain becomes

Art is No Relief When You Are Impatient
I used to wonder how awful it would be to have no words.
But now they have dripped dripped dripped out of my fingertips
and through his spine;
and all the metaphors about enjambment and autumn are gone;
and all I have left is the same old poetry
that I was never any good at.
