Word plays

Pablo

Tropical flowers

and hazy girls

from Valparaiso

 

drift golden –

like promises

on the edge

 

of utterance

so almost there

lips open

 

expecting sound –

instead a petal

drops and hair

tosses like a sigh.

  • Catherine Skipper

 

Sword swallower,

words wallower

swallows words,

allows war.

 

War reworded,

rewards the sword,

words of war,

wards of war dead.

 

Warrior kings

working at war,

worrier kings

sinking, singing,

music making,

amusing the muse

at war.

 

War of words awarded,

make music, not war.

  • Rosalind Flatman

 

Looking about

I perceived above

and below

a new terror

affected me

a dreadful doom

affected me

All fools are poets

All poets are fools

  • Adrian Spry

 

These windows

whose colour varied

were stained glass

fantastic influences

in blue and gold

grotesques

and blood-coloured

panes.
