Spanish Fly by Neil Rollinson

Spanish Fly

Neil Rollinson

Funny, erotic, entertaining, the poems in this book revel in the absudities of modern city life, the drama of great sporting moments (football, cricket, darts) and the beauty of physics.


I hand you a muon, a kaon, they vanish
without trace, you give me a microscopic
black hole, it evaporates before I can touch it.
You hold out your hands, but what can I give you
when nothing will last? I kiss your lips
and the heat of your mouth lingers a moment
then disappears like everything else.

from Half Life
