Best Poem of Jimi Doyle

The Thousands

1000 arenas
1000 flaws
1000 yellow steps

the thousands

deft-footed ones
sidewise wonders

the moon tonight
slashing a ray of light
upon the window slats
through to the walls
as moontide arrows

thunder slack moon
is now hiding
now showing
against odd
almost false
purple clouds

the thousands
1000 sirens
1000 charities
1000 vapors
the moon tonight
razoring through
1000 false clouds
finding itself
against the window
slats and walls

Read the full of The Thousands

Bill The Suicide

cold grief or demented vacuum?

grey head in coffin
suicide neck

drunken sorry note (with misspellings)
something nice about everyone (i love you)
debts owed to companies (many thousands)
punk kids from the other marriage (haircuts at the wake)
