Poems published by Poetry Express from Survivors’ Poetry

I’ve had two poems published by Survivors’ Poetry in Poetry express #60 here in the UK. They are the poem below, lightning strike sanities from the stratosphere, first published here in mid January and also Medicine’s Mask previously unpublished. My thanks to Dave Russell and Survivors’ Poetry for this acceptance and encouragement.

lightning strike sanities from the stratosphere

storm broken mission Prometheus
out of touch
alien alienated alien prey
world seller fallen to earth
strike lit conductor

"trans is a punishment" Pedro Almodovar
"how old are you now anyway" Jack White
"do not choose a coward's explanation" Leonard Cohen
"I listen to Sarah Vaughan" Bob Dylan

struck such to tunes reliable
whilst science denies its poles have switched
horizons fallen weather broken

there is more
truth         hurts
it cannot be

'suck the air from its bubble'

're-spin the threads
from as high as we reach
into the roots of the sky'
