BUMPER TO BUMPER by David Partington

Vastness of a turtle neck wrapped around in swaddling plaid
Innocence is no excuse
Passing though I’m just looking
Going down the rabbit hole

Undulating common people, dancing in the disco

A small vastness Tardis like state, unbeknown but welcome
Last nights antics covered in grease proof paint

Still looking for the orange one


‘GREEN IRON’ by David Partington

Hemmed in by green rough iron
Paths leading in grid like ways
Sheltered municipal building with smooth red brick
Waiting for the orange one
November coldness with pockets lined with rich mud, richness for grape and grain.
Not uncorked but twisted metal
A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down
Not red but white easy on the eye and throat
Can you tell me how to get too?
A gaggle approaches made up of short and tall bold and mauve.
Tights pulled high over puppy fat disguising secret rings

Make-up not to cover just to enhance, no sin here yet!
Runes fallen to the floor spelling out the evening…………
Green jacket peace signs, seen more mud than glory
Shoe gazing fashion sense, melody making

Apprehensive but a new born confidence, shares a dram with me, no drama…
Listen as I should have, regretting something without the facts
Washed away now as roots pull through asphalt
Forgot? NO forgiven

‘SPHERE’ by David Partington

A last ditch attempt at mercy
Leave it by the door
For aren’t we looking for peace?
A once round world turns into a sphere
I have no fight for you or you for me?
Latitude and straight lies
Unconventional truth is an hour away
When you go through that it’s not funny anymore
Time go go go
Ring me when you’re ready but not before
