Most pictures and words from Anthony C Murphy

Where is the unlovely gronking of the rooftop gulls
The smart peep-peep of short-tailed English blackbirds
In the dark before the alarm
The night gives birth to more than darkness

Not so much sweat
Not too many droplets crawling along the perineum
That grow legs and cling on and pose
A threat

Any sudden movements are met with groans
And bloody pops
The sheets are soaking the sots
Doing the job of clots
If hell is not sleeping
It's torture not sleeping alone
