Garry Smith Poems
The penquin woke me in the night, Shattering shards of glass, Resounded up the stairs, And, through cheap B&Q veneer.
Cora Bishop's feet ain't cold, Naughty little lie she's gone and told. And, we know they're not really red, Tells little fibs 'bout going to bed.
The land of hearthstone tales, Where every hill touches an angel. With a little help from Dylan Thomas, of course...
As possibilities, Of that yet to come, A cause, Still to be won,
Somewhere In The Ether
Somewhere in the ether, Your song I can hear. And, over the miles, Your thoughts transcend.
Fish eye, Tooth and nail, Swimming in circles, Around pallid pale.

The penquin woke me in the night,
Shattering shards of glass,
Resounded up the stairs,
And, through cheap B&Q veneer.
Naked I sprang,
From soapy dreamworld,
And, grabbed a dumbell,
Armed myself with a second,
To hurl at my bedroom invader.
And, then, seige interrupted,
By late night Radio One.
Soap dish dancing in the bathroom,
On cracked Welsh slate,
The penquin had lost its goggles, again...
