House Thieves in a Fruit Bowl


And pears
House thieves in a fruit bowl.
Imagine instead …
A mouldy green tennis ball,
A plastic crescent yellow moon,
A tonne of purple pom-poms,
A squidgy-orange stress ball,
And a well-fed Martian with his bald head sinking into his torso and sacks of flesh flowing
over his tiny teetering toes.
Natural inhabitants.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
