Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Kiwi Drowning In Paradise


my God nine years hard time
no immortal New Zealand wine
nine years cursed thirst hard time

nine years of not
being able to purchase
a single good bottle

of New Zealand wine
in a supermarket
to enjoy at meal time

coming home coming home soon
prepare the kiwi wine catch up time
buy me a bottle buy me a whole crate

send a whole
truck load
of New Zealand wine

fill an entire swimming pool
full of New Zealand wine
let me dive in swim swim swim

if I start drowning do not save me
let me drown in paradise kiwi wine
let me breath in paradise kiwi wine

send no lifeguard to rescue me
then when I am safely good drowned
send an angel kind to rescue me

raise me back to life on her lips
let me be reborn on her breasts
then bask in sunshine of my smiles

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
