Black Madonna

Found Her

A Madonna, Black

In the playground

Next to

The church ground

In between

The chicken shop

And the housing estate

She guarded the sacred water

Which we sniffed

Did not drink

Waiting on health & safety

Knowing that She

Enters us pilgrims


Once the road has disappeared

Once the path is all done


Spring Appears

Leaning to the side

Caffeine spiralling up and through

My heart centre

Out the top

Of the chakra

That sits

On the open hole

That is my head, exposed

In between

The traffic sounds

Clitter Clatter

Keys dance, phone rings

Spring Appears

Bird Song

In a tree

Lewisham Way
