5311 We are not bloodthirsty. Note how we do not kill civilians
5312 And I say again, there s no money
5313 They are brave but they are not sailors
5314 Birds made of cardboard, cotton-wool clouds
5115 You are just as dead in your penthouse suite

5316 After the Funeral of the Mother
5317 My river cares, yours is indifferent
5318 TEDDY
5319 Would you be a loved wooden boat, a liner, or a fast silver racer?
5320 And left, his donkey-jacket, smelling of sweat and petrol

5321 Bottles of water, bottles of beer
5322 Yes, it's probably cancer, but only if I go to the doctor
5323 Because, when we turn on the tap, water comes
5324 A vomit of landlubbers.
5325 He hides his garibaldis in the second-top drawer

5276 I am thinking about the red tractor
5277 Why Spring is a bigger deal than Summer
5278 A man and a woman sit silent in a seaside cafe
5279 I fee; as if I should be making arrangements
5280 Death of the band

5281 I am too tired, Mum, too tired
5282 How the shoot seeks the sun
5283 PLUMS
5284 There is a salt smell and something else, raucous and unpleasant
5285 It is nearly over, just relax

5286 Barry Island then, the trip was like winning the pools
5287 We thought the dads going to the pub was something that was necessary
5288 A few tons of meat
5289 If they were speaking he would say she fills him up with light
5290 Mothers were fat and didn't sit well

5291 It is five in the morning and yet I want a steak
5292 Outside is creeping in
5293 She would say, he makes her feel like she is wrapped up warm
5295 The dead silences of a shipless shipyard

5296 Both of them have given up smoking but they would like a cigarette
5297 How the fingers split, like spiked guns letting in air
5298 I have seen them as light rises, seen them at the end too
5299 and doctor's rubber gloves sticky with something
5300 Among the Postal-Orders and Registered Letters

5251 The Nepali for "Smile" is Arsenal!
5252 We should build bunkers, on stilts, against certain possibilities
5253 Jane Jane, Weightlifter
5254 There are students in the streets
5255 The police are shooting at each other 

5256 In a dirty motel, south of somewhere
5257 A little bit truer than the BBC
5258 Didn't he go to live in a jungle?
5259 Small people
5260 Blood on the grass

2561 A multi-millionaire died after forty years of drugs
5262 He killed her with his diamond-studded cane
5263 Tinned Peaches, Evaporated Milk
5264 A quiet river going nowhere, overhung with trees
5265 Killing is in fashion. It has always been in fashion

5266 We hoped, some prayed, but still the light went out
5267 It is the nearest he gets to sensitivity
5268 The Perils of Peter Prostate
5269 There are rocks bleeding, poets with Kalashnikovs
5270 How on the Sabbath we did not speak

5271 She wanted a heart to heart but skin got in the way
5272 If I should die, remember I fucked it up
5273 Wearing a Mackintosh in the Bath
5274 Did the leave of their own accord?
5275 These are the sad men, this the sick, those the dying

5226 Trees, Water, Sky. It is not unusual
5227 I am almost done, Madam
5228 On a slow train in a jungle, drinking red wine
5229 Avoid the leeches and the rain. I suggest October or November
5230 Let me consider your proposition

5231 I have not been here before
5232 How the snake rises up to be sure
5233 We are all waiting, believing something must happen
5234 I am falling asleep
5235 As the roof is taken by the wind

5236 How it is in the darkest times
5237 Caerphilly, Abergavenny
5238 Something will come and she will be lifted up from here
5239 The certain obscure difficulty of Samson Brown
5240 Abseiling

5241 The view from Galway Hill
5242 There are protected places where we do not go
5243 Better people by far, than I
5244 A bank-manager, a deputy-head, a police inspector
5245 The exact nature of the furlong

5246 Become my servant so that I might save you
5247 I am empty
5248 A gentle orderly with a beautiful body
5249 Rise then, and take the wind, breathe in and laugh
5250 This, then, shall be our epitaph

5201 Uncle Pizza buggered off
5203 Apparently a bombarde is like a tuba, only less couth
5204 It was only a small nuclear war
5205 There will be a lot of corpses. but at least its December

5206 You collect matchboxes, I collect shit. What is wrong with a hobby?
5207 I have thought a lot about what was right
5209 Either they were hanged or changed the world; I can't remember
5210 They are polishing the capital for God's visit

5211 What is important is decided by the Gods
5212 Do satellites think they are still?
5213 How many ways are we speeding through space?
5214 Just an ordinary man who kept sheep
5215 I dreamt there was a mill, weaving happiness

5216 How much would I have to pay, to work here?
5217 You think this is easy?
5218 I have lived in times I thought were important
5219 Semolina, the Devil's Work!
5220 Can you make time for tea with the Viceroy?

5221 No more than third persons per taxi, pliss!
5222 It took seven weeks for one stranger to decide the fate of 1.6 Billion people
5223 CLOCK
5224 Rivers of blood are beautiful. No way you can deny this.
5225 I see your reflection in the puddle. It ripples, making you seem alive

5176 A sense of dimming light
5177 Please call time. I am very tired
5178 A juke box crying for coins 
5179 These are not kind times
5180 Sharp hees on a parquet floor

5181 How the splinter finds the thumb
5182 The way a tree looks at wooden furniture
5183 Making signs the women understand
5184 Black stockings, hair severely in a bun
5185 The falcon does not love the falconer

5186 Seven Trumpeters, one triangle
5187 Memories of Spain
5188 If I could I would leave here now, and fly somewhere
5189 The radio is on and every hope expires
5190 Chicken Soup

5191 You have your facts. I will stick with feelings
5192 A night of white horses
5193 I have been translated from the French
5194 You may wait in that corner
5195 When we had given up we turned for home in silence

5196 In 77 I was living near Cardiff
5197 I was hoping to be kidnapped
5198 Insects smeared across the screen
5199 Sleeping in a cheap theatre, waiting for a train
5200 We lay in a soft green field, imagining we were safe
