Here are three poems ‘Autumn’, ‘Autumn Fly’ and ‘Bush in the Rain’ read by me. The poems are illustrated by photographs of the autumn woods, taken by my friend Shanelle.
BUSH IN THE RAIN
On expensive legs.
A man may choose
Time in beds
With girls who watch the clock.
Goes back on
And she is gone
In her cheap shoes,
On Expensive legs,
Under the same (yet different sheet),
With another man who, lying in bed
May, through his extasy
Hear the drear
Does watch the clock.
He will sense
That she does so
And will learn to know
And ponder on the recompense
Of gorgeous legs
He can not keep.
In his, empty, bed.

A young lady whose name was Wood
Said, “I shall always be very good,
But, whilst out walking one day
In a field of sweet hay,
She did what she never should!

Do lamp posts
Show, by their fitful glow
Of sinners long ago?
And, on seeing that fitful glow
Do dying men go
Back, down that dark track
Ghosts under lamp posts.
And, if so
Do they grieve
For the money spent
On cheap scent
Perhaps it is so,
But That, I can not know.
