keep you still

If I could keep you
still, in time,
a precious moment of connection
and lock it in the memory of my blood,
sometimes, I think I would.


‘The Shared Society’

The Shared Society

Swallow entirety,
Divvy to take.
Who shares Society?
Who is the cake?

Are you better off..?

Are you better off, today
Than you were before
The Lords of Moar
Divined a world of people
Easy prey when poorer?
Feeling any more secure
Now the Lords of War,
Increase supply
Defending Peace to pieces
Expeditiously to hoard?
No, nor am I.
