Luvvies

by Jem Croucher

The luvvies at the Dome last night
were out in force and loud
But when the man came out on stage
were silenced by the crowd
He made us smile, he made us laugh
and tears were rolling free
the sold out house in unison
for this hilarity
A tour de force in every way
this swan song to the game
before he treads a different board
to give politics a name

Acetaldehyde Dehydrogenase Deficiency

by Nick Anthony

Corralled in the narrow alley

Drunkenly bumbles and stumbles along,
Skipping in hiccuping rhythm,
Belting (and belching) drinking songs,
With the flow of the fleshy river.

Naively danced nude
With a nebulous-like gauzy cloth
Tied to the nape of their necks.

I WISH I WISH

by willowdot21

I wish I was a poet I wish that I could write the kind poem that talks of love and life.

To speak of shards and fractiles  of light while travelling through this vale of tears. I think that, that is so hard I bet it would take me years.

I wish I was an author a best seller I would pen! I’d wow the critics and public and I’d never work again. Or maybe  a screen writer a fantastic  gun ho! script, a Gothic terror with vampires cavorting in the crypt.

I wish I could write romances , long painful arduous tales with women running barefoot after their men across the dales. I’d have beautiful nurses falling at the doctors feet . God help the poor patients who we never hear of …perhaps they are all asleep .
