Love & Books

This is a tanka written last year and posted on an old blog under the name W.F. Tyrman.

Raise a mighty tome
As my ever lasting tomb,
Through sheaths i roam,
Searching for feelings unknown,
And hearts, unbroken by me.


Ten Things That Wear Out

In Honour of WH Auden.

Everything Must wear out in the end,

From Wayne Rooney’s hair

To the appeal of Fred Astaire,

From brail books

To Katie Price’s good looks,

Kindled curiosity

And the modernist monstrosity,

The Duracell bunny

Pretending  PC jokes are funny

Humanity’s salience

and even, my patience.
