Alistair Plint Poems

As the sun beats
ultra-violet rays
her soft-pink


The hail beats the tin roof of this old house
like a previous century stoning
the ice crashing on the corrugated steel
is reminiscent of a

Dumped the television
only six months
It was filling my mind

Dried rose petals
fascinate me
The delicate death

When the rules of the game
on the blood exchange
All eyes staring

When my dad
his life support ticket in
We cried

my woman
curled up, close enough to know
her heart beat has timing;
arm crossing chest

Awoke in the normal

Alarm singing chinese
mobile tunes like an

She fills the

As her leg

at the carwash
doing that futile thing
only thought about thoroughly

As real
as the abstract
Maybelline, pouring down
your mimed face

Stared that butterfly's wings, down

drank the shapes of that pattern

The glass fell from her hand
gravity was pulling
it to the floor
that rouge glass had a mission

The devil sent a black-bird

A bird
black as a crow

A Zebra lives in my road

Alistair Plint Biography

Well Hello, Thank you for visiting again, love what you've done with your hair! This is my Jouska. I am a flawsome, technophile, pistanthrophobic, libertarian, coryphee, ambivert, individualist, Christian. (My Psychiatric accounts are insane!) I have size B man boobs; I eat lots of KFC in my endeavor to achieve size C. I am widely opinionated on liberty, religion and spirituality, hence accused of being open minded. The problem with an open mind? There is always someone trying to fill it! I come from South Africa. This means I have mastered NONE of the eleven official languages, which has taken years, to achieve! I have two children. Both girls who live in co-habitation with their mother they are my entire being and purpose. I spend my life finding unique ways to install the positive into their C - drives. Blue Skies, Love & Light @ You Al)

The Best Poem Of Alistair Plint


As the sun beats
ultra-violet rays
her soft-pink

She begins
to bend

Each individual
brings a rusty
from the edge
to the velvet
where they meet

With thorns
in her sides
she collides
with deathly

The process begins
each petal
waits its turn,
falls to the ground
her once

Then finally
she is naked
and bare
Just a tarnished
lifeless bud
what she




And her name was Rose
