A new form of Poet Laureate was created a few days ago, with the Trashed Laureate moments at the recent Trashed event. A simple process to collect lines, blend them together and create a single work, with the best lines awarded a laureate-like bottle of port.
 I want to live a million more lives;
dine with a million more people, say to each;
show me the workings of your world,
before this one winds down.
The house sags on itself as clumsily as a southpaw’s scribblings,
The sky-blue of the china lay scattered;
If you didn’t associate with anyone who’d done a bad thing…
you wouldn’t know anyone at all.
When you shout it makes me horny.
With a great aplomb, the frozen lugworm
grew a third nostril and besmirched
the bowl of peanuts with a large ironing board.
The cymbals hiss, the dragons bliss
soaring high the clouds do die.
Cornice gleam is cornish ice-cream
Alluring, alliterative alliance of arts.
We toss our syllables towards the stars…
Hand in a Jar.
No ideas spring to mind, I’ve scoured the thoughtscape of my mind
Oh well least I tried, now be a good sport
and hand me that port
Motors drone, lights shimmer
An ancient story Arcs through the night.
Life is about randomness, it makes my soul shine.
Amazing, grazing its all about dazing
The beast of uncertainty stands before my eyes
should I walk the right or be the man whom I despise?
Make wine & drink the music.
Paint a beat and make a picture.
Oop, my soup is gloop!
Ten green bottles, preening on the walls.
When you shout it all feels better
