Newcastle

When the bread of life
Is down to the crumbs,
Stale and dodgy,
The hill that says jump
And the hill that says
How high
Will come to the sunrise,
Coals

The Walls

Truth perhaps
Will set you
Free but it’s
Not a prison
Break; it’s
Not a cake-
Walk since
The chips stay
Where they
Will, off the
Shoulders

A Certain Comfort

Go on, carry that dark
Soulful night up the
Ladder tied however
Shakily to the solidity
Of dream. I’m here
To say, Go on! You
Have fallen already.

Still Waiting

looking back
I was looking back
then too
and waiting
for a train from where
to where
I’ve long forgot
all I remember
is waiting and
looking back
