Work in progress from street artist Trafik along Pedley Street, off Brick Lane. Looks like this is going to be a real a stunner… Nice guy Trafik, he gave me a chocolate as I was snapping him with roller in hand painting the white squares.

Got my fix on Union Street

the fix

On a chance discovery of  Union Street… I found street art, theatre and a breakfast stop.. Alas the tiny fringe  Union Theatre was closing this week only to be re-located across the road.. The first production  opens on the 13th July 2016. “The Fix”… Looks like it’s going to be a sell out show, so get your fix now and be part of the new history of this quirky fringe theatre in Southwark, London! Please click on the  film link to see the plight of hard-working folks being unfairly displaced..

Encounter With A Vampire

 

My eyes closed for a short spell as I recounted the following:

Oh the howls of a cruel remorseless wind bellowing at thy brethren.

Kleptomania sweeps along a moving shadow stealing souls.

Yet for some there will be no equanimity.

Gnosticism warns of incubus.

Sounds of claymores clashing unyielding.

Alas not one ounce of compassion.

Blood flowing scented molecules abound.

The lone black figure sparkles a fang of brilliant white flashes past anomalous.

Just a shimmer of subconscious awakes.

Legs now fill with osmium.

Uncanny spirits hover above.

Intuition spells out danger.

Bilious takes a hold then ponderously stumbles.

Yowl in terror at the supernatural aura.

For a Vampire tyrannical crossed my path.

I’m reposting my poem “Encounter With A Vampire” ~ Penned in just under an hour during 2010. My normal style of writing is to use short simple words that I can spell. This poem was written as a pure excuse to stretch my comfort zone. Just digging it up again as my acknowledgement for World Poetry Day  ~ March 21st

They say it’s the dogs bollocks

I say what about the muddy boots

Tread very carefully some say

Both have merit lets say
