ORWELLIAN RIPTIDE



what if its the clouds
that
are metal 
and concrete

the sky that is polished glass

and the ground under our boots
that
is nebulous

like
soup
like
steam

swamp of passive inaction
        
        of the dormant anger
        of inherited guilt
        
        of decades 
        of distraction and denial

sucking and writhing
with
dangerous
deep
orwellian riptides

A TALE OF ORDINARY FOLKS



the young guy in the corner shop
dont
like
dogs
at all

hates it if they get in there

even if theyre tiny or old

so 
sometimes
i will carry them out for him
when 

am 
i
there
squinting at the headlines
and
buying
crisps and rizla

i dump them on the pavement
where
he
will
watch them on his cctv
with
a
wary
eye

after i firmly closed the door

PUSH 22, THE INFECT ME WITH YOUR LOVE ISSUE













HARD TO REMEMBER IT ALL CLEARLY




walking back to school after lunch
198?
alone
duh

and theres this blind corner
where this big puddle builds
and girls
run round it
to not get splashed by traffic

today its dry tho
i might have double science
not sure
but there is no puddle

not of rain anyway

anyway theres this kid out in the road
p****** m***** i think his names was

or is ?

and hes fitting
epileptic or whatever
not sure
but hes gone and bitten thru his tongue

its off
laying there by his head
like something from the butcher

the pooling blood looks purple

hes not in my year
i dont remember doing anything
i was shut down
unphasable

theres two girls
twins
at the corner
hands over their mouths

traffic has stopped

i think i remember an ambulance coming

i was shut down
unphasable
and
i
walked on
to double science

i think it was a
wednesday afternoon
and 
what a class of tossers that was

POOR EFFING EVERYTHING



tv 
is
UNICEF
malnutrition
famine
deforestation

regular everyday horror

all from Somewhere Else

then
a huge glitzy ad
for
make-up
and
a huge stylish ad
for
a
hatchback

poor fucking kids
think
poor fucking world

wishing i could pop out for some light
go out and quickly buy some right

for
all
the
poor fucking kids
and
the 
poor fucking world

does it count
if we cry on purpose
in
our
hi-rise land ?
