cold wind at sunset
biting deep into old bones
six ravens playing

Guttering Candles

your dark lover comes
black cold midnight, chiming
guttering candles hiss

Bleeding Tree

lovingly, carefully
tree bleeds, raven whispers

Healthy Habits – hair removal

Posted in poems on May 1, 2015 by Phillip Barker

“Permanent hair removal
under arms….
three times – ninety nine dollars”

(A sign in Melbourne – if not a haiku – it oughta be)

(And later the same day.)

Healthy Habits cafe
drinking too sweet coffee
rolling a cigarette

Weight

Posted in poems on April 24, 2015 by Phillip Barker

on my noisy street

tyres whisper on wet tarmac

restless, urgent voices

cold rain running off the roof

chill wind beats against my door
