Just Say It

 

Just say it

if you have something to say

 

She masks the meaning of her machinations

mixing her metaphors

intertwining innuendo

like lovers locked in lip-service

serving only the cerebral cyber cyphers

that are incomprehensible

to the incompetent voyeur

with his lack of vampiric virtues

and his virtually vacuous knowledge

of the gloomy gothic arts

grotesque yet gregarious

simultaneously strange and familiar

forming as they should part of his own

foundation in fictional formation

 

Just say it

if you have something to say

 

Her words are weighty

well-chosen sounds to surround

the sinner with psychedelic scenes

in super cinescope

the graveyard

the gravestone

the graven-faced lady

a grave mistake indeed these

grave analogies

over anxious and under analysed

what is the message

what is the motif in your motive

where is the fire that once fanned

the fighting spirit to be spirited away

in spite of beauty

substance has been substituted for semblance

 

Just say it

if you have something to say

instead of images behind tired illusions

and incessant alliterations

ironic as they are here

Just say it

If you have something to say

Writing Update January 2018

New year, new books, new photographs … working hard on a new Supernatural / Crime Fiction Novel: Fyre and Stone.  Also reediting the Botolf Books, which will have new editions very soon.  Other projects to watch out for this year will be A Landscape for Yourself (poetry collection) which I’m hoping to launch alongside a Photography collection of the same name, watch my blog and twitter for details on that one.  There will a new Upstairs Cat book (children’s books) for Xmas 2018.  Finally, and at long last, The Deaths of Guner Zoon (comedy sci-fi / adult humour) will be launched in the summer.

Other side projects are on the go and I’ll keep you updated on those as the year goes on.

Happy reading

Steve
