When A Young Lady Wearing No Pyjamas

When a young lady wearing no pyjamas
Said, “I come from the sunny Bahamas.
My name it is Claire,
And I’ll take you there”.
I said, “But what about the Bahamas?”.

Half-Remembered Faces

Half-remembered faces,
Some forgotten,
Lost at the bottom
Of his mind.

Some were graces
And left

He fancied himself bereft
But his heart
was never cleft.
Although,a few do,
Its true,
Live on,in art.

A Young Lady with Looks Most Glorious

A young lady with looks most glorious
Said, “I like it fast and furious!”,
So we went on the Big Dipper
Where she revealed herself as a stripper,
Which the judge he found quite curious!

Stream of Consciousness

An interesting post, on the site Interesting Literature, regarding “Stream of Consciousness”. The article defines “Stream of Consciousness” as follows:

“Put simply, ‘stream of consciousness’ describes a literary style in which the various thoughts and impressions of a character are relayed
to us in a way that captures the suddenness, spontaneity, and often inconsequentiality of those thoughts and impressions. Usually, the syntax will reflect
this, and it will either break down into fragmentation or, in some extreme cases, punctuation will be largely absent”. (See https://interestingliterature.com/2020/02/what-is-stream-of-consciousness-introduction/).

The author traces the origin of “Stream of Consciousness” from 19th-century psychology and philosophy, through to the 20th-century author James Joyce’s “Ulysses”.

Back in 2016, I composed “Composed Mor or Less in Realtime While Sitting in a Liverpool Garden”. At the time of composition, I thought of my poem as being (in part at least) a “Stream of Consciousness” composition. However, having read the above article on Interesting Literature, I think that it is, perhaps better described as an “Interior Monalogue”, rather than as a “Stream of Consciousness” piece of writing.

When A Young Lady Named White

When a young lady named White
Knocked at my door after midnight,
And said, with a grin,
“May I please come in?”,
I wished that girl good night.
