Harriet James

For Shelley

Dull and boring aye?
Well I never!
You must 'ave a migraine
Wi' yer imagination severed!

Plenty of beetle-juice
For you my dear!
And doze goblins and merlins
Soon will be near!

Gavver around
Your funniest mates
To brighten up yer shipwreck;
Then clear dem decks!

Add sugar and spice
To all thoughts delish,
Then you'll find images
For all to smile and flourish!

Denial

Denial
Denial
Denial

Isn't that it - denial?

But know that I love you
And know that it's true
And pure and soulful,
Just beautiful!

But

It's spilling over,
Spilling over,
Spilling over,

Spilling over into desire;
Desire to touch you,
Desire to hold you,

I have lived

I have lived through being
Neruda's mermaid, feeling
Every cigarette burn.

I have lived through being
The African Princess,
Where the Prince turned
Back into a Lion.

I have lived through being
A ballerina, dancing gracefully
Upon the stage.

I have lived through trying
To be a poet, but frosted
Out not knowing rules.

I have travelled places
So beautiful, I still go
Back for more, no fool.

Reclaiming the Ship

Parrot!
Captain has stolen our ship again!

Find me another so that we can
Board and clean the all decks
Free from paper with words
'sadness', 'sorrow' and 'woe'-
All to be shown the plank, got that?

Then hide the ale from view,
Put some magnesium in his soup
(Not too much, you know what that would do) .
Kill some chickens in the coup,
Line the cupboards with the best food.

Then make sure he eats!
And when we hear that belly laugh again,
Set course for buried treasure.

Ramblings in a phone booth

I'm trying to remember
When last was I stuck
In a phone booth on pavement
Without card or a buck.

‘Twas in Chicago Illinois
When trying to phone home,
(ET comes to mind)
That reminds me of Rome -

Frantic calls to the bank
To send me more money,
Pickpockets had cleaned mine
Now that wasn't funny.

And the film, ah yes
Colin Farrell; never saw it,
Preferring the red phone booths
In a typical English village.

Slowly slowly like this

Slowly slowly
The rippling waves hit the boat
A small fishing boat on the lake
In which he and I sit
Softly back and forth

Waves caused by some water ski
Do not disturb us

My hands stretch out on wood
Behind me as I look
At him
He is telling me a story
Bashfully looking away
Each time I try to catch
His eye

Familiarity warms his body
To mine
The distance is now less

Ode to the Banished Fairy

Once upon a dream
Disney plagiarism I know
But here it goes...(singalong)
For you

I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you
The gleam in your eyes
Is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it's true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But, if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once, upon a dream

(keep singing)
La, la, la, la
But, if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
