DEVIL ON THE RUN

‘Covid-19 Art by Anasyasya Eliseeva via New Frame’ It’s not the sky that’s on fire It’s humanity’s destiny So stay locked in your prison cell And let what will be – what will be Don’t hide behind a miracle Hide behind an old locked door Say no to celebrations Besides, you’ve seen them all before

OBSERVATIONS

‘I’m good with corona’, says Mr Wolf’ Day nine, banged up. Happy most times. Daylight through a window. Vitamin D days. Running out of mushrooms. I live on mushrooms. I heard that the seagulls have gone fishing out at sea. They don’t hang around McDonald’s any more. No Grand Big Mac eaters to swoop down

DOORWAY TO THE ROOM OF CLOUDS

‘Doorway to The Room of Clouds’ ‘One minute I held the key Next the walls were closed on me I discovered that my castle stands Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand’ Coldplay I thought I’d try something random again, just writing the first thing/things that came into my head. I’ve not done it

OVER THE TOP

^My pal Adam celebrating his victory^ I put a pic of me just about to lose a game of pool on the blog a couple of posts back (see below for a repeat performance). What I’d forgotten at the time was that I had with me at the point of my defeat, my Go-Pro. That’s
