Slow to Settle


U’r a blister bee’s
sting tip
speedy speedy
U go knots over rope
splatter spew
breakneck bumble
I’m still
drifting airborne
moth dust pensive
above ur
Irish-Italian wake
I’m spaced
in a queer angular
v e r i f y b0 X
quandary font
U’r burning wicks
4 candles yet made
cakes never mixed
sting tip shiver
a spirit new
My spirit’s ageless
angel of 248
Buzzy biz nil
lost the way knave
but I’m settling
and u’r dust bunnies
under passing boots

  1. Hi I am from Australia I have a few blogs I write about my dreams and about my creative thoughts from time to time. I also have a blog where I write problems I find on street like corruption and other similar issues. My blogs are at and have a look and it would be great if you can give me a feedback on what you think.

    1. Thank you. I appreciate your feedback. I’d be happy to jump into Poetry Picnic next. Looks like a good theme.

      As for 248, it’s a reference to a TV show called Angel (1999 to 2004). It was the age of the main character.


    1. Thank you, Kathy. I’m glad. This meaning for knave seems so right for today; should be used more often. And going knots over rope was meant to be a seafaring reference, but gym class works too :).
