And that’s 30



For Karl Popper

I take refuge

In the search for truth

But what is truth?

Is it knowledge?

Is it possessing knowledge?


It’s the quest for truth

That defines us

Poem 29



A riot of words


Sludge and dreck

And mud and glop

Bake my noodle

On gray days

I just want to sleep

And sleep

Offering warmth

To cool bed-sheets


Releasing an hour

Or two

To quiet



Spring arrives

Late as usual

And noisy as a lawn mower
