How to Find Green Spaces in Cities

What happens to your romantic life
if you don’t use dating apps?

What France’s “Spiderman” reveals
about your views on immigration.

Blackcap, redstart, yellowhammer:
what’s in a bird’s name?

Please don’t roast marshmallows
over the erupting Hawaii volcano.

SOME BEAUTIES

My_backflip__by_Prodigy_Levy

Some Beauties

the falcon hears the falconer
loud and clear

she simply disobeys

*

slaughter contains laughter

*

some beauties:
Nyiragongo’s lava lake
butterfly stitches
fisting
Tatiana’s letter
Egil’s lament
Eyjafjallajökull

*

(yes you are my lodestone yes)

*

the falcon
must be female
for the tiercel is the male

(so-called
because he is on third
of her size)

tercel-gentle (Walter Scott)
tassel-gentle (Shakespeare)
tassell-gent (Spenser)

small compliment / vast continent

*

some more:

stormlight
cloudbursts
backflips
geodes
cashews

*

trust contains us

AUTUMN 

A phone background poem. 

LOST BOYS SLEEP FOREVER


All the feels for this Derek Jarman poem stapled to page one of my second-hand copy of Modern Nature.
