This Solar Province


The sidewalks have turned on the crowds,
killing against all adulation
as massive plumes erupt from their plastic surface,

following the ritualised forms of traditional dresses.
The new defense ministry is giving free samples
(dropped from aircraft) of an elaborate molecule

in rainbow hues like artificial azaleas.
In a city under a hot-water ocean,
a laboratory of the unnecessary.

An Unbelievable Battleground

An extraordinary miracle, but
Will there ever be a victory?

Victorian Media Mansion


A narrow road with unoccupied mansion,
parked cars which water the waste
squatters who moved despite lawyers.

The Victorian era created social media
in a flooding, largely, screaming abuse
at oligarch and sewerage services.

His heart is a void

One that could result in a catastrophic kill.

A collision course,

But now, leave a note
Online, on the Earth, the Moon
A court document for space, 65 billion years from now.

Core of Loneliness


Living in the blue room
Ripped away from an iron core
Bodies that almost became notorious

You feel safer being a secret
At the cost of a terrible fate

Strangely the loneliness below the surface
Is a happy chain of stories
Across the ice searching for comfort

Our homeland is not losing,
It is a battle of hundreds of thousands

We said it is to stop,
And signed below.

And we will launch their hunt,
For we are the refugee.

Days to Forget


Remind us why we fell in love in the first place.
The little kids who don’t know how to be grown up,
It’s easy to forget that.

Lost in the streets of nonstop mystery
That tests us to find out who ‘us’ is
In the days that made us forget.

It’s easy to wonder that despite this age together,
Nobody could have predicted that
We can still forget why we fell in love.

the jaws of work lay him motionless
dragged further into man's own lair.

But there is no set kingdom,
And the man died from a long wait.

The Twitching Habitat


On the verge of France and California
Causing their strategy to collapse,
A tricky mechanism, a hungry bacteria.

Starlings are forced to inhibit the body
Scavenging for their habitats and lose,
Some of them have been found to go hungry.

No doubt, the birdwatch will be on
When we change our behaviour to conserve energy,
For the next stomach-distressing extinction.

It says they’ve cracked one more

That Consuming Posture


In the town's map, one dozen windmills stop.
If potent accusations of the principle can breathe,
it's the air that has beaten him back.

by using lasers to launch an albatross;
but is that real hunting?
