Time for another of our short cuts collections, of short poems by 3 different authors…


he waits

for the dice to tumble,
for the scales to fall

like rain
on an autumn night

He’s been a long time

being someone else.

Rust on a Sledge

Rust on a Sledge
Is like Neville at a Party.
They are both inevitable if
The Sledge has been used
Or if Neville's wife is throwing the party.

See you later bro…
to my good friend Shooey RIP

brother of mine
goes on burning
behind the curtains
a trail of smoke
for the moon
leaving stories
of how hard you tried
