Juice of Nelson Haven Tuesday November 22nd, 2011

Today I had the pleasurable task of recording some poems for Fresh FM Nelson.  It was pleasurable because Matt, the producer was kind, appreciative, patient and extremely helpful. All a great boost for the poet’s ego 🙂 .  I recommend it! Here is one of the poems I recorded.


At the vineyard

the cool dudes gather

let the waves of wine

flick and swill

across their palates

erasing past memories

‘stunning nose

crisp, young and fresh

definitely fruit driven.’


At the Boulder Bank

the cool crabs gather

as the tide

flicks and swills their palates

erases muddied memories

‘stunning nose

undertones of treated poo

and goggle-eyed

deep sea
