Best Poem of Mark Heathcote

River Street Urchins

River street urchins,
The gutters are swelling.
[Waiting…] for the sky—you and I
To reach—the storm drains of joy.
Before we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…

River street urchins,
Before we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…
River street urchins…

Paupers oh, so giving, don't you know.
We'll queue in the streets
And pray to be free!
Till we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…
On every official bank holiday parade:

Till we're free, till we're free
Till we're free, till we're free
Till we're ...

Viagra Falls

The sky puddle spied by a sparrow,
Dreaming, maybe again tomorrow,
I too could be a swallow a swift or a wagtail?
I too could be a canary, green & yellow
Or even a golden chaffinch.
In his dreams he wouldn’t give an inch …
Even in salinity he looked …
He looked in the mirror with cataract eyes
He looked for his, obligatory fan mail …

[Hata Bildir]
