Neil Crawford

Holiday Snapshot

White cat,
Blue balcony,
Pink apartment block

Noise of
Orange bulldozer
Abhorred.

Future Shock (A Very Short, Sci-Fi Tale)

The android soldier
set down its weapon
and, facing its human commander,
resolutely refused to obey.

Pensee No.2

Teacher's Pet


All art is the process
of snitching
to God,

Science is the bully
that 'gets' us
in the playground.

Assonance

A dour, a sour,
a glowering man
caught in his
umpteenth April shower.

Fraught in the rain,
again, a strain,
a pain the rain,
the rain, the rain, the rain.

Dwindling

Sometimes I do not feel the need for company
Sometimes I do not feel the need
Sometimes I do not feel
Sometimes I do not
Sometimes I do
Sometimes I
Sometimes
Some
So....

Dawn Notes

Through a window pane in Worcester,
a scene Cezanne might have have painted,
sky of cornflower blue, Pyrenees replaced
by pale violet band of Malvern hills.

Trees, fifteen shades of green, surround
higgedly piggedly, sugar cube houses,
burnt sienna rooves jostle with
sun smeared, off white walls.

Emerald swarth of a rugby pitch
(this is not a football town)
draws the panorama to the
sleep kissed morning eye.

Pride's Bayonet

Pride, still variable, took command
and muted that loud, fanfare band
that heralded loves of longing born
and left them deafened, dumb, forlorn.
Slight logic then expelled by lust
pride's bayonet skewered my naive trust.


Speak soft, hallowed communion
of matters dark and dubious
of subjects sly and lecherous,
the dart releasing lash
and the juggernaut's procedure,
the Mardi Gras is banned
in Love's decayed cathedral.

Word Association Exercise

Moon - Glow - Worm - Grave - DEATH

Rose- Thorn - Cut - Bleed - DEATH

Dove - Peace - Rally - Riot - DEATH

Telephone - Conversation - Preservation - Fallacy - DEATH

Hospital - Disinfectant - Panic - Pain -DEATH


Sorry, folks, this is no joke,
if you're looking for laughs
read Ogden Nash.

(This actually was a word association exercise set by my poetry course tutor.I was surprised how it turned out.I must have been having 'one of those days' - it's not meant to be taken seriously) .
