Tom Jenks, from levers

got some knock off vouchers for Burger King
                         down the mall with all the brutalists
cunning like a cat she hoards the stationery
got a letter printed in Take A Break

*

sexy when she dresses like that like Kim Jong Il at a power plant
on the working model a crumb is a boulder
I'd play you maj-jong in the caravan
                                  but the big rook bent the aerial

*

riding her blue tricycle down the green lanes of Avalon
there were three cheese triangles there were two cheese triangles
                       on the ides with a trembling hand
got a top hat you can borrow, Margaret

*

                                    like a mash up when the moon is in the trees
                                    like eating pizza in a hansom cab
avoiding ideas in the first Chinese restaurant
                        in the evening, when the leaves are falling

*

this does not require a shift in the logic merely a change of emphasis
his father invented a new kind of duck
skate on, Fibonacci but the bees
                                              aren't listening

*

         down the Champs Elysee with a ruined croissant
the donkeys unmolested, as at Rhyll
the trembling, redolent blossom dismissed:
                       "no straight ship could sail so crooked a brook"

*

Tallulah Soup: a girl invented
his hand on her knee in the walk-in centre
a muskrat, capricious, on the weak bridge,
                                                                       fie

*

Cameron the blue in a purple bottle
a white cat recoils at the seminar
they put an event like this on pineapple high gloss
           like a Romanian in the pommel horse final

*

this rain a slant, slant of rain
                                            of curving shelters
she was drinking flavoured water on the escalator
on the day I finally gave the prisoners yoghurt

*

you can never go too many times to Nandos
after 8:30 when it gets a bit naughty
             down the water slide with Jasper and Olga
eating peanuts in a frappuccino high chair
