She Is Sci-Fi

She stripped off her
retro boots – ripped up
her non-descript Sunday suits,
trashed her ugly
dresses – burnt
the dark cuttings from
her tresses – now short
dyed ocean blue –
in futuristic design she
put on some devil horns and
a wrought iron spine of
prickly thorns –
square shades and
silver-glittered roller blades,
giant collar and shoulder fakes,
face paint and wings of snakes –
open jawed,
she flew with higher birds, and
with her sabre sword she carved out
the words in the sky –
I am sci-fi.

 Tigers In Cloud Ships

Clad in spiked plummet –
stilled vapour rip
as cotton ball angels drift,
sail scratch prowl –
circle bird cluster
in snow coat applause,
suited cream orchestras
abandon scarred circus skies
in chorus salute,
and tigers in cloud ships
roar unmanned –
their sweetest melody.
