Gershwin era Stretched out by chrome bands
And sabre rattled silver ringing bell
Scrapped Planes repaired for a revolt
old visions reappear with a home made gas leak.
just as a wire harrier settled here like the fallen
a windmill that can’t reverse a blocked dam
that needs a bloom flush out.
As we all tread water from black out blinds to our rebirths
before you complain remember ever indiscretion
is counted and can be raised like a metaphorical
rose from seabed.
As thorns can be lent for the ascent
Visible climb lighting mountain lion
a borrowed electric hammer comes down
On blooded tourniquet sleeves.
angles of a arising mandolin climb
as we cross legs to say grace
To fallen Flint towers the folly of Canute
To straighten this other hares fight
whilst we watch the pleasant Greek seas
the Narrow boats really not that far
trumpeters signal to those that can’t see
through mist Of the good book on sailing
here’s one loaned on navigating with stars.
As we all tread water from black out blinds to births
Before we complain remember ever indiscretion
is counted and Can be raised like a metaphorical rose from seabed.
