a river of stones

Number One  – January 4th :

A sea serpent of hoover cable spews out my child’s wellington boot

Number Two – January 5th :

Panic! Panic! A call to arms  Sweep up the babies Push out the house Fire Alarm! Fire Alarm! Stomach pit sick flip       -Stop.                 False alarm 

#aros    aros


Number Three – January 6th 


is that a bichon frise           curly-whiskered   dog-food-messy-mouthed     rubbish-bin snout-shuffler

neon yellow plastic thing        who threw you there

Push     the pram         i am my mother                  Who am I

Rock Salt!         Order Now!                   Why

#aros aros


Number 4 – January 7th

Walking       Suddenly Awoken        a large messy raindrop lands on my head      

like a blessing to a child from a benevolent priest    

#aros aros


Number 5 – January 8th 2011

By the lake    

The child says   ‘Lets’s sit here’      cross-legged        decisive      determined

Spotting book to Duck      back to spotting book     back to duck again   

Hm.     Not Sure.

Number 6 – January 9th 2011

Walking on pavement                looking up ahead

the child moves further away        

with each sandpaper skip
