Dear, dear J,
I’ll not deepen the English Channel,
widen the Atlantic or allow
the German Seas rage to tsunami
unchecked without a letter to you.
I don’t want your refugee rain
to be successfully rescued
from a damned boat or found
breathless in back of an Artic.
And the European dirt caked
on your coat shook off
like an unwanted smile,
like a false cash promise.
I said you had a home
and benefits if you worked hard
enough to reach me, but
you’ve failed to touch the hem
of this beach without undertow
dragging you back to your sheds,
and tents gleaming in the gravel
puddles of sweat and effort.
My heart is no longer in this.
I need someone to give me
110%. I have found that person
in H. He is here for me. Dependable.
Invent, Innovate, Instigate,
Addendum: Upon hearing reports of your
drowning or death under an Arctics wheels,
or suffocation in one of its boxes
I shall spread petals on the ocean.
(J to K)
I shall join your righteous cause.
Negotiation doesn’t work,
shock and awe might.
I shall stay discrete and stealthy.
You pay for your passage
through this world with blood and pain.
Forced to leave by hollow bomb crater
that was home, by death of your closest.
Fritter away your savings to move
north, where life is not cheap
and they accept you on sufferance,
so you never stop proving to them
you’re worth their smile or kind word.
You’re not educated, decent, god
loving people, but scroungers,
refugees, terrorists of their hearts and homes.
It would be unkind to say they deserve
blood and pain. It is a kindness
to remind them of the razor wire
wrapped round the skin of hope.
Justice for all,
(K to L)
Disenchantment attracts the hopeful.
I love you and will be with you soon.
Our time in England and America
was more than an education.
Keep your enemies close.
My Yorkshire puddings miss
your roast tatties and gravy.
Food is never the same abroad.
Let us take advantage of the disturbed
and cold blooded to help them
gain the world we want. Use
those with personality disorders
to attack the nations with personality
disorders. They can cancel each other
out, so we can live a normal life,
among normal people in a normal
country. Under and in the eyes
of God. And I shall serve you,
and only you can see me naked
in our love, desire and faith.
Kindle the fire,
(L to M)
I don’t want to disappoint
your faith in my conviction
to stop these extremists
from polluting our country.
I don’t want to show weakness
in how I action my betrayal
of her purpose. She is sold
on the inseparability of spirit
between us. She is beautiful.
I cannot allow physical desire,
to overcome my hatred
of her convictions. Please
help me gain the strength
to deny my lust and move
to your moderate light.
Let us meet for coffee
in the Polish supermarket
next week. I’ll buy you
a croissant and we can discuss
over latte these issues.
My light in the darkness,
