BEHIND THE BRICK & CONSENSUS




noons the new midnight

dusks a ceasefire relief 

dawn games are welcome 
     
i play there
     
like canute did 

with the tide


~


our deal with the dark
        is always in play

i stretch out there 
        sweating bleach

waiting for the time out
            the short death
            the hallucinations
        
   behind the privilege bricks 
        
   














OUTSIDE THE CAMDEN LOCK SKUNK FUNK




the 
national front
bomber jacket babies
surfaced streetside
to flog tired bile

& always 
they were heckled 
down down & away
by the greenpeace / cnd / big issue posse

outside the camden lock skunk funk

& suede jacket sales


~


i assumed progress was momentum

not a shrinking isthmus

oh my rosy glasses

ANALYSING OUR END FOR THEMSELVES

 


paradigm shift
priorities are

a rush to name it well
jacuzzis in the bunker

apocalypse shows 
to saturate the tv streams


~


sociologists 
rub their hands / ring their hands

reach for the thesaurus
peer review
& gin 

analysing our end for themselves

SHOWER ROULETTE & MAINTAINING THE MEAT STREAK




clothes wash on in the washer

makes the old pipes conflicted

its shower roulette again -

waters hot then cold
           then gold
           then scald

           old fyodor 
          never had to 
        worry about that


~


my meat streak 
strongly suggests 
hibernation

exhibits extreme confusion
& manifest limbic protest

at orders to the contrary

THEY FORGET WE THROW THIS SHIT AWAY & BONUS POPLINGS





theyre selling us 
sea plastic now

as ecological bangles

like they forgot 
we throw this shit away


~


trained & conditioned

we genuflect our credit

in 
the
holy heft of bargains


~


& my first hash
well i lay cliche
on a suburban lawn
star struck & immobile
with someone
i would never talk to again
