World soaking through, dreaming, failing loving

Purpose straying, hope betraying

Angering so-over joying

Happiness, pleasing.


Agonising, pretending, water off duck’s back

Getting over, moving on

Money powering, laughter healing

Silly, stupid-ing: toads of Toad Hall.


So are you and you are so, sowing your family—even your mother

Sorry, not my mother of course

Hoping for saning insanity: nihilism in fact…

What else is there?


You! The one birthing, always birthing

Gauntlet throwing-down

Pregnant mother-giving-birth-centre stage

Star, animals, baby-watching-family.



Dreaming hope-love-joy

‘If this doesn’t matter, nothing matters!’
