Love Poem ~ Simon Howard

The information I receive
accurate to a sequel  
is there difference
between internal language

Unseen architecture
shall appear unseen
take delight in nothing
nor dye your hair candyfloss

Plated Echo ~ Andrew Taylor

Paris never
sounded so good

Carry of cable

a capture

Dust dampened
movement restricts

Weather forces


like simple mortar
we are prone

to crumble

Only Shallow ~ Andrew Taylor

Take shade of trees
     arc of cool

spread from the pack

regulate breath
     wait for sides
to fill

road initials painted

benefit from shade

Aware of chat behind
      comfortable pace
like feet on piano pedals

De Magenta ~ Andrew Taylor

Transcontinental journeys before the funeral
handwritten messages on the newspaper’s front page

plastic bag in the fridge contains the gift of beer selection

walk the boulevards punctured by coffee and cognac
it is clear that we are English

traditional and handcrafted roasted beans
it is evident by the taste

the apex of the station’s glazed roof reveals
redundant architecture

it really was the time for headwear
the breeze from the river was icy

Andrew Taylor lives in Liverpool and his debut full collection, after several pamphlets, Radio Mast Horizon was published in early 2013 by Shearsman.
