Without You
by Adrian Henri

Without you every morning would feel like going back to work after a holiday,
Without you I couldn't stand the smell of the East Lancs Road,
Without you ghost ferries would cross the Mersey manned by skeleton crews,
Without you I'd probably feel happy and have more money and time and nothing to do with it,
Without you I'd have to leave my stillborn poems on other people's doorsteps, wrapped in brown paper,
Without you there'd never be sauce to put on sausage butties,
Without you plastic flowers in shop windows would just be plastic flowers in shop windows,
Without you I'd spend my summers picking morosley over the remains of train crashes,
Without you white birds would wrench themselves free from my paintings and fly off dripping blood into the night,
Without you green apples wouldn't taste greener,

Robert Burns
by William Topaz McGonagall

Immortal Robert Burns of Ayr,
There's but few poets can with you compare;
Some of your poems and songs are very fine:
To "Mary in Heaven" is most sublime;
And then again in your "Cottar's Saturday Night,"
Your genius there does shine most bright,
As pure as the dewdrops of the night.

Your "Tam O'Shanter" is very fine,
Both funny, racy, and divine,

The song of
flames.Dib. dub.
Dub, dib.

The ocean was
rising. Make a wall
of tears.

On Being Asked For A War Poem
by William Butler Yeats

I THINK it better that in times like these
A poet's mouth be silent, for in truth
We have no gift to set a statesman right;
He has had enough of medding who can please
A young girl in the indolence of her youth,
Or an old man upon a winter's night.

How many guys are sitting at their kitchen tables
right now, one-thirty in the morning, this same
time, eating a piece of pie? - that's what I
wondered. A big piece of pie, because I'd just
finished reading Ray's last book. Not good pie,
not like my mother or my wife could've
made, but an ordinary pie I'd just bought, being
alone, at the Tops Market two hours ago. And how
many had water in their eyes? Because of Ray's
book and especially those last poems written

Faces on
Platforms - throughout the city.

Your helmet.

Unintelligible Words
by Somali Mukherjee

The ocean behind
Seems to speak a lot of things;
We can't understand.

Darkness being an introvert, has
a different meaning for me

It not only means no light
but a world away so bright

Darkness, the absence of people or
a crowd so large...

it prevents a busload of feelins

Set me on fire and let me burn
by Muhammad Ibrahim

Set me on fire, and let me burn
Until to ashes, I return;
Burning, and burning with that gold,
Slowly, and softly, melting away
Everything's clear, but I can't behold;
I know the way, but I'm astray
Set me one fire, and set me again;
Nothing to feel, no hurt, no pain
Set me till, I return to ashes;
Gather it,
