Things I Have Made and Done Pt.2

This is a poem I wrote lying in a hammock, under a coconut tree, by a lagoon, in The Cook Islands. I tell you I work better in the sunshine.


Have you ever found yourself wanting to be Flash Gordon?

Not in essence super

just really well co-ordinated

like a swim-coach

who made the most of quite an ordinary name

simply adding such a prefix as to suggest

we could rise above playground subculture

your own personal Ming

oh flash,  loving love comes

as easy as humility amid your success in team sports

what did you have to go through?

Teach us Flash, Prefix us

The Honour of Being John?

You are a beacon for the vocations

The Gordon School of creative naps

Rigorous retrospection into the development of balance

and yoga, Flash definitely does yoga
