The rat tamer (commission)

They’re in the dark corners you pretend not to notice, and they come out to play when it’s dirty inside… or sometimes just at random… The rats that you tried to hide, running rampant chewing up your curtains and carpets…taking your values for randsome. They grow if you feed them, they become rabid when youContinue reading “The rat tamer (commission)”

The weightless man (commission)

‘the weightless man’ I used to think money was synonymous with power. I used to think walking away was being a coward I used to think space and time were only inches and hours… I used to think too much, and realised to little… I realised brittle, foundations will topple even the tallest towers IContinue reading “The weightless man (commission)”

its like a jungle sometimes

In colour and in rhyme

“We are all here for a reason on a particular path You don’t need a curriculum to know that you’re apart of the math Cats think I’m delirious but I’m so damn serious That’s why I expose my soul to the globe; the world I’m tryin’ to make it better for these little boys andContinue reading “In colour and in rhyme”

Shadow of supremacy

 They stand against the light to cast shadows, that make our paths dark, it’s no wonder we got lost on our way home. We once sat on gold thrones, now we beg thieves for a place in our own home… we’ve been taught to fight their shadows, with the shade we throw, while the graveContinue reading “Shadow of supremacy”

miss kemet

They would ridicule, they would laugh. They would stand in her way with envy and wrath. but she builds pyamids with the blocks they place in her path. she knows the shadow of the great sphinx could be cast by a scare crow, and so, her fears would rule her if she didn’t learn toContinue reading “miss kemet”

whispers and screams

(Co-written by @fontsize4poetry) They tell me that I’m no good. Crawling up along my shoulder blades, they cling to my ear lobes and pull up. Whispering with conviction- Look at you. Ugh. Do better. They tell me it’s my fault, pushing back my shoulders, tugging aggressively on my ear lobes, screaming with assertion. Look atContinue reading “whispers and screams”

Fake flowers 

Dear inventor of fake flowers, why? I understand that maybe you just wanted to capture beauty and keep it forever, but don’t you let people believe that looks will last. Didn’t you realise that there is beauty in aging, that there is character to the bunch with a few wilting stems? You can’t trick meContinue reading “Fake flowers “

Blossom 

As I shift my focus towards what the lotus shows us, I start to notice so much more, its like hocus pocus and I’m free from the locust swarm of the norm, returning to the form In which was born. A new seed planted in my mind. I Fertilised my perspective, to be less selective.Continue reading “Blossom “

Paper tigers 

Paper tigers on the paper trail, earning their stripes without fail. The Hunter talks of taking the beast by its tail, while the shepherd tells comforting wife’s tales, to the rest of the villagers praying not to fall prey. Those from the west begin to flee east, from the heardless beast, that didn’t roar toContinue reading “Paper tigers “
