Mystic Rhythms ~ 'Penny Pusher'

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Penny Pusher ~


Yoan makes hearts out of centimes
Carving copper curves
With a kindness that unnerves

'Come back later
It'll be beautiful', he's a perfectionist
I nod, dutiful

He isn't wrong
Precisionist, precisely placed
Each metal disc

An echo
Of his calloused wrist
I promise him

A photo
For two years he's been
He tells me

Making metal hearts
On boulevard Montparnasse
Under the tree
Next to the creperie
Far from

His Romania
His patria, his homeland
Hoping for a helping hand

What would he do
With a photo?

Mystic Rhythms
~ Don't Close Your Eyes ~
LISTEN TO THE POEM


I am a tattered rag in a Calcutta slum
I am a battered hag from Hull and then some

I am a feather on the duck who steals my chips
I'm the leaf that falls on my leg as I lick my lips

I'm the kid in pink who's thinking of jumping in
I'm the picnicking parent in panic with sauce on his chin

I am the windblown remains of yesterday's news
I'm the sighs of the lover who doesn't know which path to choose

I'm the world that I witness, without me the universe dies
I'm so scared to turn over, to lie down, to close my eyes

(I'm not really, it's only a poem, silly!)

Poetry ~ 'Seasons of My Discontent'

Mystic Rhythms
~ Seasons of My Discontent ~


Hey buddy, where's the spring in your step these days?
The birds on the branch are singing, your eyes are glazed

Hey man, pick up your heart and change your ways
While some are burning bright you're feeling phased

Two zeros make a nought an' me I'm tired
Of watching falling leaves dull our desires

Hey cool guy, win to play and let's get fired
We'll melt the snows of sadness like livewires
