DREAM POP AFTER READING




1. THREE POMES


three pomes

hover before my sleeping eyes

fruit flies with cheeky grins
who 
wont
wont
just
wont settle

during nights half coma delirium
and
its
rotisserie chicken parade

of course 
they escape

or

of course
never
never
just
never were

~

but the day washed up this tube pop

on
the
back
of
boiled eggs

at 11 AMs low tide




2. CUL DE SAC


its a cul de sac people !

we are in a cul de sac

we are cul de sac people

dont fret
back up

this is nowhere 
we havent been 
before

break new ground
is all

break new ground

with respect for the tools
and 

the magic underfoot

THOUGHTS AFTER READING





1. FIVE SECONDS


our
undrilled
heads

sealed six times

always five seconds away
from 
death or fortune 
or nothing

are wet inside

grasping
and

undergrown




2. BOWIE


what
you
all
call
Art

i say

is the Result of Itself

and
only
bowie himself
is
allowed
to
challenge that

MARGARINE SUBSTITUTE AND NOBLE DELUSION




1. MARGARINE 


they
carved
their
names
in 
lime green margarine substitute

hands
too
smart-phone-weak

to
work
trees
bark

or the fenced off
unfracked stone




2. SHOVEL DAYS


cant grasp this knot
cant undo it
this clusterfuck bundle
of fuckery 
and lemon lies

i get my shovel
and i grasp my shovel
and rest its rusted tip
on the soil
too sick to dig

~

i stand there
like a tree stands there
times accident
and design

a noble nylon delusion
barefoot
and
surreal

on the crust of our earth - our lawn

smelling the end days
and the end days

smell like rust 
and 

standing water

FUCKING WITH THE SEA




eight billion maniacs

all fucking
with the sea

& i find myself
in a most unusual stupor

the ghost woods & the owl cave
they got inside me

&
apparently

i too

am fucking with the sea

RUSSIA CALLING




i want
to breath
that blank
russian air again

want to dwarf myself
in eternal foyers
too brown
to echo

want to smell the diesel
melt the snow
in
the
imposition streets

want to see 
the grey domino
city scrape
thru
the
bad glass 
twentieth floor 
windows

over a river
gone solid
where no one skates

and count those copper tubes again
in
the
airport
as
i
leave again

but that was gorbys days

and i was western air

supervised around
that
strange flipside
of
cold war freeze

russias calling-

its price chalked
on the soles
of its awkward
evening shoes

2. SUICIDE ILLUSION

she died
of
daytime tv

their twins

onto direct debit

their suicide pact 
creating
an
illusion

AUTUMN SAYS EXCUSE ME




when winter
gets 
out 
her family album

autumn coughs
points to the door
nods once
and takes his leave

~

the
celebrations
scheduled
thru
the
years
nadir

are
waypoints to basecamp

~

then a long climb

to summers polaroid wash

softened
by
springs nature watch

its 
slo mo blooming a sudden

flower and life parade

hide their legs

THE COST OF EXPRESSION IS INCALCULABLE




i hear
a lot
about
people
saying
to
artists

is your art free ?

when dude think about it
its not even free to DO

~

stones leak
blood tears
mix with
cold sweats
warm salt

they run together 
like rust in rain
make a pattern 
like the mekong delta

on
my
fourteen acres 
of 
tsunami debris

rolled up and forced
into 
faulty thin skin -

       pretends to be 
        Lizard  Tough

     in a pigs ear !

and
a
never-white-again
supermarket vest
