Poem of the Day – Spreading Dresses

by paturnerlee

Spreading Dresses


Fleeced by shaven heads; beating drums, pumping hearts.

Apart from chilled skin; frayed cloth flaps in the wind,

Skinned alive like burning caverns: cracked open by the heat.

Poem of the Day – Trapped in Tins

by paturnerlee

Trapped in Tins


Skin flints the lot of them

Too tight for their trousers

Hows’ they got the nerve; or even deserve

A listening post

The most gifted whistle blower: who’d know her flashing teeth

Poem of the Day – Gripped in Seasons

by paturnerlee

Gripped in Seasons


Picked in singing yellow; an outing to a window

Seen now as a public relation guru

Sat under a fee; questioning the latest target

Set inside an answer: sheet twisted and tangled

Burning up the budget

Poem of the Day – Jagged Hedges

by paturnerlee

Jagged Hedges



Scarred tissue an issue for the mother

Another scandal to handle; dismantle


Educated in bath tubs

Bubbles in dreams:

Smothered in salty creams

To scrape the dirt from torn skin

Fiercely embattled;

Poem of the day – Picked up Presence

by paturnerlee

Picked up Presence


Fly tip: stripped of personal possessions

A median measured: just part of a whole

A crescent moon, turning to an audience

Poem of the day – Sprayed Intense

by paturnerlee

Sprayed Intense


Blown up balloons; open salutations; bending low in separate dreams

Schemes on settees with warm squeezing hands

Plans for further involvement;

Frozen in pyjamas

The ones with strings attached.

Poem of the Day – Balls Over

by paturnerlee

Balls Over


Crystal gaze shattered with consequence

Underneath a table

A dog lies; telling stories

Breaking templates with broken heels

Fresh grown gowns smothering cream that the cat licked up

Poem of the Day – Flaked Window

by paturnerlee

Flaked Window


Tinkering with locks: busting open

So you can see the light; the fracture

Enact the vision.

Poem of the Day – Cleaver assumption

by paturnerlee

Cleaver assumption


Blade: stand to attention

A building blasted and commended for its curves

Nerves tender with crowds of sniffers roaming the streets

Looking for adoration

Testing calls

Entering empty black holes

Now full of temperament

Poem of the Day – Junk Ship Sailing

by paturnerlee

Junk Ship Sailing


Clipped in spice coloured jars of crystal clear imagination

A bickering bleeding heart

A memory carved from indignation

A nation lost in blood and narrow minded alleyways

Poem of the Day — Passed Presents

by paturnerlee

Passed presents


Despicable, reviled;

Piled on yellow parasites


Cold dark nights sliding down stairs

Steps too much

A similar stream, dreams, intentions blurred

Savouring, puncturing continually broken values

Flattened like roadwork signs

Crushed by budgets

Chained to railings

Iconic and forgotten

Poem of the Day – Supple Joints

by paturnerlee

Supple Joints


Marked distance spaced from and evaporated into

Tissue, sent to analyse a dream state

Crumpled up paper in a pocket,

A rubbish container

A purple lined smoking jacket, ready for the cleaners

Poem of the Day — Walls and Windows

by paturnerlee

Walls and Windows


Here there and everywhere, a scary tearing paper trail

Desk dripping red receding, lasting discontent

A brisk canter on the moors, crisp tingle of windy chill

On chin and nostrils bare

Charging into mirrors, reflecting trust, ignoring misgivings

Poem of the Day — Green Diamond

by paturnerlee

Green Diamond


Gemini stripped resonance called slender lips, lank hair grown desperation

Falling winged usurper, a dreamer of trips and traps

A separation calling stars in promises

Dripping in moments

Partly shaven trial of broken maiden

A kind man’s favour, tinting the blighted tipster.
