Lord Byron Glances His Rear-View Love by Christopher Barnes

The better days                 with that pretty-pretty anal astronaut
The worst can                   be unsparingly eff, so edge city
The sun that cheers          exposure is tingling, magnetism drags its rhapsody
Shall never                        unplug these flash-backs, iPod ditties on a loop
The silence                       and insignificance ripples, snarling


Glossary of slang: Anal Astronaut – Gay Man, Eff – Fuck, Edge City – Edgy,

Christopher Barnes’ first collection LOVEBITES is published by Chanticleer. Each year he reads at Poetry Scotland’s Callender Poetry Weekend. He also writes art criticism which has been published in Peel and Combustus magazines.
