The Winkle Seller – Vitallion III

ginger beer

Living off the Lump

Vitallion III


She wore high heels for das kino

And clanked all the way home

With a dash and a flourish

And an awkward brash girlishness

Down the dark alley where nobody goes

Imagine Fredick sitting naked as a horse-o

His arms wrapped protectively round his torso

Dying to be free.

Mummy in the bathtub scratching likea jumbo

Looked at me

And herface screamed the door shut.

While others plunge into the deep inferno

I have held back—

My face as red as a tomato.

This is your world Mary

It makes me want to frolic

As the steam flies

And the empire dies

I panic

While new men in overalls warble & lump

More Warbling from the Bum and Beyond


The Gulf

South Africa

All in a Shoe

My First Tomato

The Haiku

The Fungal Toe

At School I was a Fool

The Thong

Learn French with Ze Beatles

Writing a Cheque

Ikea – The Second Viking Invasion

I Had a Dream

I’nt it fucking fabless

Wise Words from Cedric the Snail

The Chip Shop

Pas Quand Nous Les Appellons

The Clitoris

And I Larfed

You Hunted the Hedgehog

The Gorse

Old Driftwood
