Bedroom wisdoms_edited.jpg


the bed is trying to eat me;
mattress wide and pillows bearing,
duvet licking between my legs
and salivating August sweat stains –
not so sweet as early June;
more savoury, like dead skin cells
from body, head, mind
dandruff philosophies running beaded
around the brain, through the scalp
and into the hair; chasing pairs
of oxygen, hoping to inhale bedroom wisdoms
and deliver them to the edges of the pupils,
wider and wider opening –
permanent fox-in-torchlight stares;
thoughts found in battery gold,
blinking into nothing
before becoming
the insides of a star.

A note for those wonderful mobile users out there:

Due to the nature of some of my work, there are often formatting issues with spacing.

Unfortunately, due to tech limitations, this is something I am unable to fix.

For the full experimental spacing experiences, why not check out the desktop version of the site?

Alternatively you can check out my Twitter for exclusive, small mobile-friendly poems.

Thanks for understanding,
