Paul Tristram- Three Poems

Paul Tristram is a Welsh writer who has poems, short stories, sketches and photography

Struggling With Alcoholism With You

The day is different now.
It’s just not funny anymore.
Rhythm and pitch have changed
and that crazy desperation is gone.
You spoilt my outlaw fun
with smiles and gentle caring.
Unclouded my messed up head
and I have never felt so ill before.

The Knife Grinder

“Sarge, we have a Mr. Joe Pickering
down at the front desk
and he claims that he wishes to become
a future witness in the identification
of our very own Jack The Ripper.”

“What’s that…is he clairvoyant,
nuts or is this a complete wind-up?”

“Well Sir, he says he’s the Knife Grinder
over on Petticoat Lane…”

“Oh, it just gets better and better!”

“…he says for 2 bob a week
he’ll keep his eyes peeled,
swears he knows the door number,
street name and face of every knife
he serves on his patch…
it’s only 2 bob sir,
I thought it was worth a shot?”

“I thought you were pulling my pisser
there for a minute, young Hawkins.
Send him up and I’ll have a quick word
with this clever little swine!”

That’s Not A Temper? ... This Is A Fucking Temper!

It was like a bomb going off, apparently.
A small greasy spoon in a side street
just off the main drag,
packed to the brim with 11am shoppers.
They were smack bang in the middle
when he didn’t so much arise but erupted,
growing sasquatch size in seconds.
The unbelievable noise that came out
of his bellowing mouth was horrifying.
Like a terrified, hunted horse
sliding through mud into barbed wire.
The unsuspecting audience
flew, fell and stumbled out of their seats
causing a rippling, domino effect around them.
He had her by the throat with such force
and concentration that his own face looked burnt.
In the ensuing confusion and cuffuddle
no one called the police until later.
He was set upon killing her,
murder in his demented eyes
and an evil sharks snarl livid beneath them.
No one but OAP’s and mothers with babies
around them… helpless and awful and agony.
It was the manager who saved her,
he come running from out the back
and panned him good and proper
twice over the bonce with a skillet.
Damned near caved his head in completely,
he died in hospital a few days later,
the poor woman is still sectioned up on F-Ward.
There’s no moral to this here story,
it’s just a little snapshot, if you will,
from the ordinary, everyday streets of Great Britain.
