Sea Creature Disco
Stephen Philip Druce

 

Subterranean beasts punch liquor
ash tribes to flash droplet
in thunder bone caper and groove,

to skinny-bloom jewel-flaked rhythms
of the bubble glide, the toe-drumming one eyed,

the pedalling fizz, the monotony freak fish –
in a blitz of glitter ball gibberish,

as the flesh lanterns glisten –
the forked lancing rays are apprehended
in the triggered feather spew –

the flaming shuffle snakes dance
in the smoke of the crumbling skeleton crew.

and hollow mutterings in sea bed fleets,
are the shipwrecked skulls that nod
to the dripping beats.

She Is Sci Fi
Stephen Philip Druce

She stripped off her
retro boots – ripped up
her non-descript Sunday suits,

trashed her ugly
dresses – burnt

the dark cuttings from
her tresses – now short
dyed ocean blue –

in futuristic design she
put on some devil horns and
a wrought iron spine of
prickly thorns –

square shades and
silver-glittered roller blades,

giant collar and shoulder fakes,
face paint and wings of snakes –
open jawed,

she flew with higher birds, and
with her sabre sword she carved out
the words in the sky –

I am sci-fi.
