Poem By Anji Carter

Don't move too fast, I mustn't.
I might explode.
I might cascade a thousand, million shooting stars into the daytime sky,
Disturbing 'Nature', as she relaxes on the soft pillows of her afternoon clouds.
I am so full!
Waterfalls plummet into swirling pools, frothing and foaming.
White horses stampede outward to an ever widening ocean,
And I am in a nutshell,
Tossed in the fermented sweat that rolls from 'Nature's' brow.
She forces me back up, no evasion then it seems,
I fly!
But where on Earth did I put my wings?

I'Ve Learnt How To Walk In The Sunshine

I've learned how to walk in the sunshine,
There's plenty for any who try.

These strange confused contusions, are they a part of me?
And if they are, then why are they?
I have a mind that runs at tangents, tying itself in knots,
It's always getting lost.

Mercury Is The Moment

Will I be drawn by what I knew before?
Life is a whirlpool, I am very small.
Dreams are like clouds, evaporate too soon.
They carry thoughts and aspirations,

Sweet Baby Sugar-Lips

Sweet baby 'Sugar Lips',
His minuscule Lolita.
Coaxing kisses,
