The old pier

We could augment it use bricks and cement it, paint it blue and admire it, or just leave it alone. what do you make of it? change for the sake of it or just leave it alone? Eventually if nothing is done it’ll disappear and we can pretend that it was never here, the argument…

About taste

The poetry came from a dream which in itself was quite obscene and the rhymes reflected that, but times being as they are, anything taken beyond the edge is considered as taking it too far, so the admin’ host removed my post as is his right to do. but life isn’t banal it’s carnal, feral,…

People people

Moving on another John, you say, ‘I never set out to meet the guy he just happened I don’t know why’ aye, says I, just passing by, says I. Serendipity is only there to trip me up and the incidence of coincidence is purely random. He’s handsome anyway in that handsome rugged way, I wish…

Snakes and adders

What defines us is the minus and we’re on a sliding scale, some will rise above it all (Kilroy on the garden wall) some will sink into oblivion which leaves the rest to carry on. Mindlessly we sit and stare bearing in mind we may not be there, but someone is. This is like a…

The long way around

Madonna’s on a bender sending signals to her saviour who’s sat in the corner seat, on a tube? The jubilee at five fifteen, a scene like every scene I’ve seen when I’ve been here at five fifteen. I try to cut up shut up but it’s quiet anyway so I type these notes into an…

How it works

Wake up on Thursday to climb into Friday and slip in on Saturday then crawl up on Sunday as Monday speaks to me, suddenly Tuesday is calling and when I am falling through Wednesday I wake up on Thursday…

Clanking along

They’ll be warring in space soon about which side and what side the dark side belongs to, the Chinese will lay claim and give it a name that no one will be able to pronounce except for perhaps a billion Chinese. The cookie she gave me held advice which could save me, fortune favours the…

Sick leave

Sometimes I wonder if the light is brighter because my eyes are duller and pulling in more amperes, Musing about cold fusion, confusing it with Confucius, the tic-tac of bric-a brac clacking through my brain reminding me it’s time again to do, but what? and what if I remember that once I used to wonder?…

Negev nomad

The unexpected I expect but I expect that you do too. In the Shires no dreaming spires just spikes to keep the homeless wakeful, that’s hateful. This ‘green and pleasant land’ ruled by a thieving ragtag band only gives a helping hand when pushing you over the edge. I could emigrate, hibernate or just hate…

Rearranging the cells

Stay in bed Saturday? a dream away lazy day? no way, I have to labour if only to feel as Hercules did. So I slid off the mattress to dress and stood a bit taller, if only to impress the mirror which looks a bit more like me the more that I see it. They’ve…

Fairytale castles and watchtowers

They were drinking white wine or spritzers I was at the pictures watching a rerun of a rerun of an old one, which I hadn’t seen before but for half a crown I expected more, they had the right idea the right place but the wrong year and somewhere near a cat was wailing, not…

The future and it lays between the fortune teller and her gaze, I have seen the eyes where love lives or dies I have watched her smile at dawn, give me the tarot card, a hard truth, unyielding and I am sealed in to the dealer and her hand…

Defragging at Dunbar

Patent pending for toxic waste please send in the men in white suits. Homogeny written in the rock of ages and yet we turn the pages looking for cartoons. There will be blame, but on who will it fall? what the past has taught me is the guilty go scot free and now I wait…

Due process

somewhere in time, maybe space too we’ll find out if what we were taught was true, don’t know about you, but seriously that incestuous whining of space doing time in is bending the boundary of belief. It’s a race, this thing with time and space, the great universal pissing contest. I am not in awe…
