TWO POEMS by JAI KNIGHT

EARLY BIRD


Naturally I’m a nightbird

but this wintery morning I’m awake before most have got up

out with mallards & watching a swan wash

along the canal


and it’s when in view of lime weeping willows

a calm comes over me

nagging infernal voices quietened

deep tissue mind massage


darting lil family of wabbits scurry back into the foliage

grey heron swooping

and birdies hopping on the path

my shipwrecked mind’s embarrassment of riches

 

THE PROPHECY IS TRUE


Prayer Circle


Lousy


Bombast

Serviced by mouth

Assumption, your honour

Contention, major problem

Cheap booze Britain rise in Levis

Conveyed no meaning

Contraption

Tone muscles

Street walkers

Sequestered


Work load

Killer on loose

Articulate

Hell bent

Easy victims

Frozen waterfall

Falling lakes


Flame Generator

Kelp

Radar Screen

Endurance

The ‘catch’

Fragrance

Cloud fall streaks

Overture

Web of secrets

Tan lines

Flexible stone

Prize draw

Pyramid system

Shrouding the sky

“Damn near dropped a tear”

Dawn’s rats

Maggots nest

Big top

Rain-bringers


Sulphur demands/sheets of avalanche

Mermaid's hold is in her glands


Flip the bird

Voiced Concerns

Consoled

Swill horse


Cruelty farm

Fighting for the federation


Rump the bicep


Night today

And back again

Morning chip bird


Leg puller

The Entrance


Discharge

Healers Napalm

Dishonourable Vipers

Private delta meetings


            I was on the top

            The position Good


Carries Man

            

Quoted the physically detailed history a lot of weight

   

Confidence


Predictable foxes, as Urban trickster

Suffocating advantage

How deep’s your hook set?
