Deleted Scenes From The Cinema Of Dreams Post 7/7 - Poem by Richard George


Oxford spires list
uprooted my escape to
Port Meadow is locked
by security gargoyles
and a callow George Dubya


War is Lazarus
a cluster bomb second moon
maypoles around us
on featherbed clouds we plod
mantis jets accelerate


A woman shopper
falls in slow motion puking
puddles multiply
I Demosthenes my mouth
with her chlorine emeralds
