Comfort’s Love

There was an incredible smell of moth balls. The leaves rustled and the area became dark. There was something in the trees, it was scraping along the earth, dark and overlooked. We were on the edge of an unused airfield. A small figure walked along carrying a thin jar of water. This was a dirty figure with not much shape or purpose. But it was surrounded by a deep flickering light, and a constant tutting noise. This was Comfort, a small Leprechaun who had been pulled out of his imaginary status by a cartoon “blip”.Now this story begins.Many Leprechauns were …Read more

She’d Laugh if her Backside was on Fire

Arse. Funny word isn’t it? Bum, bottom, behind, seat, rear end, backside, posterior – the list goes on. So many terms for one piece of the human anatomy. Ask someone to show it – what happens –the red light goes on. “Don’t be rude”, “piss off’, “for Pete’s sake”. Yep, so many words literally falling off those repressed violet tongues. My guess is that every region, possibly every town in the British Isles has its own name for a bottom or bum. Yet sadly the focus of all this attention remains our best kept secret. Even as children the minute …Read more

He could Charm the Birds out of the Trees

The charmer has eyes for everyone and everything. His head pivots on his shoulders scanning all directions. He can appear any place, any time. Once identified, always there. Standing upright with arms outstretched like a scarecrow, he can be placed anywhere, anytime. After the crops have failed, the land has emptied its veins and the workers are starving, he will stand upright and formidable against a deep blue sky and a rancid heat. He walks through the tower blocks in the city. Over the bridges along the haunting canal walks and the echoing railway tunnels. Through the salted and stored …Read more
