Poem of the day – Crackling Icon

Crackling Icon


Picked on ribbon tone rivets

To march on the criss cross servant holiday

Crushed crystals disposed of in bubbling gas water

An altar sugar sweet crackling money pot

Full of deep desire and wished on treats

Craving shaken tear spreading raven coloured tunnel

Cheap trick for magician on the hock for a star turn angel

A golden receiver of marvellous placebo gratification

To decorate the tree with bourbles of banished bereavement

Explicit dreams blown up as ornamental embellishment

Steam at top hat drinking débâcle

A stand for warm winter blankets

An end to collectively bargained giving


December 9th
