Stick shift

Buying a jeep cheap not a good idea when the rear suspension’s shot, a god should have a hot rod (no euphemism was intended in the previous line) a speed machine, sleek and clean and not a jeep even if it is cheap. I lean towards Shank’s pony but only for short trips if I…

Going somewhere

A spotlight on this night and not because it’s a Sunday, it could be a Tuesday but then I’d have to say, a spotlight on that night and not this night which would bugger the poem up and then where would I be? You see? good. but by now I’ve forgotten where this should be…

Altered ego

You stand there like Voltaire with a pen in your hand but that’s not your name and we know it. Nothing’s changed in the diocese the order remains. You are right it is Sunday, a bible or a gun day for some and is the chalice half empty or is it half full? questions that…

The conspirator

This must be when the lights tiptoe silently through the no go areas, when it’s dismal and grey and rain’s in for the day and you’re in for the day as well. some days are as near to hell as near can be or as near as I see that they could be and some…

Dragons and unicorns

Lost in the forever of magic but whenever you call them they will be there. Oberon sold us on to the highest bidder from the lowest realm, I suppose on celluloid that’s allowed but no deal when it’s real life. Like the lamp I’ve been rubbed snubbed bought and abused used discarded and magically I’m…

Saturday and rain.

Caligula like Dracula is not well thought of in certain places, but in history or myth they are a constant reminder of what we can conjure up. the human psyche that part which is you and me is capable of anything. Dark demonic possession as a form of self expression is something we have to…

Borders

Wasting time to think of the sorrow when yesterday only gives us tomorrow, there’s time enough to put by to sit there and cry and time to reflect. The clock’s just a windmill uphill mostly, but at the top when we stop before the mad rush downhill time’s still the windmill we struggled so hard…

Invalid address

Fuck you, they said but they didn’t mean me so it must be you they want to screw. Impolite came to mind amid the hubbub of the daily grind I soon forgot it, one hears so much shit like this. Condescension is prevalent in an irrelevant society the way you look at me and I…

Returns to school

Time to get lit to sit up and take notice. There are more people asleep than awake and all it would take is creative input to put them wise to the way of Today. And Today is a wonderful way to begin to begin to pin back my ears and hear the birdsong, to put…

Changes

Starting half-heartedly but that’s just a part of me an idiosyncrasy of mine. buying into a system which in turn trys to destroy me is palpably and inherently wrong. I will continue as long as there’s continuing to do muddling through cuddling you getting to the end…

Revisits South Park and other places

On the rebound back to the underground I should be used to this by now. Bobble hats and flat caps Man with a trilby will he turn into Oddjob? It’s slightly Miss Golightly, Moneypenny does not agree but we know differently and Kenny still dies. My bones ache through zones two to one I must…

Sea salts

We get instant gratification from the internet connection and use as substitute the WiFi for a smidgen of affection but we all sleep like tin soldiers stiff and painted to our beds. In the end an error message will relay us to a web site where we might get very lucky or it may be that…

Modules and ‘Mysterons’

Perhaps I’m disappearing to reappear in a clearing with Robin Hood but it’s all good. definitely shrinking fuck linkedin I’m out. Playing hide and seek with napalm bombs peek a boo with Barbie dolls but they spray me with forgetfulness and all the fun is gone. Down forty second every second a body’s sold for…

Scheme D

Taking a stab at it but breaking a bad habit isn’t so easy. If I carry on it’s ten to one it’ll finish me and if I cease? will that give me peace of mind? I talked about the rock and roll of the tortured soul to myself in the mirror last night, I tried…

Lamentations

The bible read superficially encourages no one least of all me although Delilah with a smile, a pair of scissors in her hand promised me much more than the promise of the promised land sacrificial lambs and a fatted calf sold for a talent and I have only a half. Daniel, in the den with…

Scenes from a silk screen

On the right side of his highness popcorn and soda a code book and the road to salvation. Falling forever in love it was never like this. Intuition tells me that superstition is just that I throw salt over my shoulder anyway. Moments go by and I see them in the eye of the storm…

Don’t eat the sweetcorn

Try and you try and you still get it wrong because the learning curve is so fuckin’ long and the nights are much brighter on the dark side of sin knock,  knock and we’ll let you in. The telephone wire’s stripped bare electrical impulses no longer there no voice to control me and my mind’s free…

Gargling with gargoyles

When I flip and skip a word or jumble lines that become the sum of what I do it doesn’t bother me it’s only my pretence at poetry and who cares anyway? Shakespeare? no dear he’s long gone along with Shelley, Keats and John Donne, I feel at times alone like the lines don’t want…
