Sundays Only

written by: SMiles



Metaphoric adjective, the what came first
calcium carbonate encrusted embryo
or a subspecies of red junglefowl
cracked, content laid bare, either or

salted by flesh juices of the omnivore, genus sus
sliced, diced, cured and preserved
fatted belly and leaning back
each a smoker’s delight

religion falls fowl of the beastly reference
pecking snorts at the feeder’s trough
contented by confetti’ing aspirationals
pitting Burka against Friday’s fish

the farmyard playground littered by droppings
used as next generation fertiliser
cultivating non photosynthesizers
from the kingdom of fungi

neatly partnering members of night’s shade
fiesta Spanish blood red fruit, multi-seeded
sizzling in pans, enjoying Olive’s oil
yielding in form as fungi holds firm

take a moment of prayer for the less fortunate
unscrupulously plucked, used to sweeten the bean
stewed, opposed to the lead believe, baked
hats off to the dancing Haricots

combining all components pursuing fast breaks English style
splashes water on the dozing unsuspecterants
food’s opiate, subliminally administered by aroma
hooking to a lifetime’s addiction.



My name Is Stephen John Miles (SMiles) live in Barrow in Furness Cumbria England, I'm 53 diagnosed dyslexic at 47. Found my written voice once diagnosed and have been shouting ever since. I've a self published children's book Zac's leather elephant and a published children's book The fox the owl and the big green towel, I have a new children's book coming out later this year called Book of Zac. The books are published by Austin Macaulay. I made stories up to entertain my children all rhyming this led to the books. My break in poetry came after a friend of mine died and I wrote a poem for his funeral. Two years ago I appeared at the Bloomsbury festival in London. I write beat poems as it works well with my dyslexia. Something I feel strongly about is self expression after feeling excluded for so long. I'm not for everyone but then not everyone's for me so that makes us even.
