Eskimo

May 18, 2014

I come to you like an Eskimo

On the last remaining ice floe

when the icecaps have gone

.

I come to you like an astronaut

Who has lost contact with his ship

And floats towards the sun

.

Displaced and disembodied

Alight with hope

My mother

October 17, 2013

 

My mother was beautiful and stupid and clever

Poetic and selfish, misguided, perceptive

Useless with people, terrible with men

Sentimental, not loving

Adored, not loved

Contradictory, direct

Fallible, impetuous

Reluctantly, I suppose, only human

Spirit me away

September 8, 2013

 

Spirit me away

 

I whisper as I watch you play

 

I know you see a better world

 

Spirit me away

Father

November 29, 2012

 

Do I do anything of which I would not wish

 

My father to approve?

 

The way I walk or where I walk or when?

 

The words I write the words I say or think?

Darwin

June 11, 2012

.

The elephant and the butterfly

The zebra and the lark

The cuttlefish and the humming bird

The albatross and the shark

.

The ant and the orangutan

The razorbill and the whale

The hyena and the skunk

The piranha and the mole

.

All creatures in their diversity

All life forms great and small

Are the children of evolution

Charles Darwin made them all

.

The rattlesnake and the tarantula

The penguin and the dove

The dragonfly and the weevil

The tortoise and – the crane?

.

The wren, the hen…

The cat, the rat, the stoat, the hog

The sow and – the cow…

The dog, the bat, the toad, the frog

.

All living things in their complexity

All creatures great and small

Are explained by natural selection

Charles Darwin made them all

.

The porcupine, the lemur

The anaconda and the bear

The antelope and the bison

The python and the hare

.

The possum and the cockatiel

The mantis and the conger eel

The parrot, the ferret, the weasel, the goat

The catfish, the dogfish, the stingray, the roach

The blackfly, the greenfly, the dragonfly, the wasp

The adder, the mamba, the corn snake, the asp

.

All creatures of land and ocean

All inhabitants of air and earth

Are the fittest of survivors

Evolution gave them birth

.

The flamingo, the swan

The rhinoceros and the lynx

The grizzly and the elk

The manatee and… the crab?

.

The worm, the germ, the monkey, the racoon

The slug, the bug, the donkey, the baboon

The hake, the crake, the snail and the bee

The coot, the newt, the quail and the flea

.

All creatures in their complexity

All life forms great and small

Are explained by evolutionary theory

Charles Darwin made them all

.

From my volume of poetry ‘Speaking in a monotone, a monotone, a monotone, speaking in a monotone, or not speaking at all‘.
