I (sometimes) call myself Mr. Pondersome. I'm a rather wordy, weirdy person. I say hullo a lot. I write a lot more. While you're here, why not give some of it a read?

POURING MILK IN THE DARK (a.k.a. The Inner-Poet Wakes up a Bit)

I'm little by little
inclined towards tea
but my flimsy tongue
needs something paler
to freeze
my buzz.

The bulb, freshly blown,
has scared me to the fridge
but the light inside
is kind enough
to showcase
the milk.

I guide it, drag it out,
slap mugs across the handles,
pull out the biggest,
fill it up with
a broken

And little by little
it sprinkles, trickles, leaks
and pisses me off
with more sticky germs
to wipe

I pull out a funnel
and drain the scratched plastic
and down the mug
in three steady

I'll sort it out,
I'll buy some more,
don't you worry.
