Adrian Cox Poems
A Black In The Eye
Hands swing around a circle of numbers till they reach out both of them,
Can you imagine my tease so nice, sweet with sugar full of spice.
Thoughts And Dreams
Inside my empty room there's only pictures in the dark, I'm thinking in my solitude because thoughts are what we are.
'Mirror, mirror off the wall how did you come to dropp and fall? With silver slithers of pointed glass
Sentenced To Death
Hanged from the gallows of creative writing. Swinging from the gibbet of sentence construction.
On a black and white pedestrian crossing holding up the traffic with a skateboard under one arm, he frantically picks dropped coins
Beneath gas lamps black night skies to eary sounds of distant cries.

Fiendish Little Circles
Following footsteps faintly in the snow, I've got the scent I know which way to go.

I'm fast asleep, the rain pours down on this winters day. My room is dark, the sky outside is grey. I'm like climbing up a cliff face while gravity pulls me down. One jump that's all it takes, just one slip to get me down.
A Black In The Eye
Hands swing around
a circle of numbers
till they reach out
both of them,
grab you by the lapels
then smack you in the eye.
You're late for work again.
