On your bike Boris

Rent a bike,
Be like Boris
Wind in your hair
Reciting odes from Horace.
Avoid jealous lovers
And the press
Get fit
Reduce stress
On your bike
To get a job
See London sights
Beat traffic lights
Hail Boris well met
Don’t forget your helmet.

Grief Talking

Grief Talking

Janes, Jamie,

not Jennifer Jane,

names,

James,

miss, missing

when you lose

you lose your ane

your aims

names

trying to say the right name

that is how

I do feel, I do feel her pain

miss Janes

blames

me.

Dustclouds form as

words

disperse in helicopter flail.

Her son’s blood

inking sand.

Lack, lack, lack,

gunning in her head.

His body incomplete,

a word

with the last letters

crossed out.

News news

Hurrah, already a newsroom has responded…even if Tyne Tees worker Richard Salkeld’s motivation was primarily that common prompter to poetry; a colleagues’s birthday…

Good evening and welcome to North East Tonight

With Pip, Rich and Ben everything will be alright.

Stories from Northern Rock, Newcastle United and now the North West,

Look North, B-Group and Real are left with second best.

More in our late bulletin after News at Ten

But don’t forget tomorrow’s birthday boy is Ben!
