No. 78

For Brisbane Boy. CpSingleton (c) 2014

In dreams that pick from forty sights,
I see us like we all once were.
You, the man that mirrored my laughter.

Not sniggering at the world’s expense.
Ours was cerebral. A dice thrown
Which lands on several numbers at once.

Our eyes saw dancing mice, dressed
In the red and black of
Long ago military figures.

Our fingers flicked through books
That giggled with each page that
Was lightly turned and turned again.

We drew a door on wood chip walls and
Slid into worlds of beatnik poems,
Written on battered guitars with loose strings.

We sat beneath stars that landed
Lightly, like whispered thoughts,
Around our rubber crossed legs.

I miss your bright-light meanderings
Through silly-string rooms.
I miss our carpet rides to other seasons.

About cpsingleton42

I am a - not so young - writer of poetry and prose. I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © C.p.Singleton, 2012.
