Brain freeze

Jeez is it cold today ‘just feeling your age?’ No way. I’m tucked up like an Eskimo, (loves), hat, scarf and overcoat, long johns and gloves. If this is global warming you can shove it, (love). I’ll get to where it is that I’m going, no knowing though if that’ll be soon and there may…

Up next

It’s time to change the record, to spin another disc, time to forge ahead and make that leap, to take a risk. I used to suck on rusks for breakfast, I knew that couldn’t last, how to grow up in a careless world, to leave what passed back in the past. Pay one more bill…

5 Park drive

Rolling Virginia loosely between fingers and thumbs, my lungs are the living slums full of nicotine. I’ve seen adverts on the TV about what smoking can do for me, how time has moved on. No longer cool to light up in fancy wheels or ride horses through long pleasant fields with a cigarette in your…

Witness for the prosecution

If it’s finite that’s an end to it. I wind my life out on a reel unwinding all my woes and heaven knows I have enough of them. There’s a point somewhere and I encounter there the Infinite. So if it’s true that what we as men can do under the ceiling made of glass…

The good communist

Incommunicado? I can’t tell of what I know. Padlocks on my tongue to stop it running loose, a noose around my neck just in case. Silence is tarnished by oxidisation…

Converts from convicts and convictions reversed, rehearsing conversations and checking out of the jail. The convoy unaware of the danger back there carried on, strike one. Rest breaks and more takes, is the cameraman pissed? reverse hold and conquer, we will win to win will. Strike two, the best murderers do, they usually get caught…

Action replays

Becoming that part of the mystery, crossing over the boundary, leaving behind all the misery, I wonder if the secret will unfold for me. I see transparency in the darkness about me as if there’s a bubble of light that surrounds me, all hope’s never lost and that’s patently true. You who have never known…

Trumpets involuntary

No moon tonight No stars in sight, A single candle throws a little light. A scene I’ve been in sat and cried for friends who only lived and never should have died. Time slows to bow its head a clock shrieks the hour to the hour of the dead. I am post traumatic being led…

Suicides on Sunday

We are connected in these looser ways not sure why or what that says, just noise like bells that ring on holy days, we all search for the grail. If I fail to see or fail you, can I be a success? If I choose to confuse the two can you? Seagull flying high sounds…

Unrelated incidents

The tongue flicks blame like a flamethrower each lick burns another scar. In the backyard of eternity where mistakes can go to breed there’s a need for need and the needing needles me in the backyard of eternity. I walk barefoot in the sand where once stood a king that ruled the land, Ozymandias was…

What would you do on BBC4 or ITV2 could you be body shopping, eyeball popping? I should be a fantasy on Radio3 while you fantasize about Radio5 instead, I’m an ideogram a faint figure of a man. As I sink into another submarine I can dream of other things and see what tomorrow brings. I…

Platform games

Sensory. It’s only common or garden said someone, ‘ I beg your pardon’ said me. So easy to be submissive, but if you disagree be like me and tell it like it is. In the master plan, we are what we am and I am in agreement set solid in my cement won’t brook no…

Overcast

Going grey, time gouges away at me, lines appear like trails on my face and my skin starts to wrinkle, eyes lose their twinkle. Going grey. I might go away, I went once before but was sent back again to suffer some more, going grey. A pointless exercise, I still look in the mirror and…

Some get off scot free some win the lottery some like you and me are somewhere in between, some say they’ve seen the light some talk a load of shite some get it on at night some are like us. If we don’t look far enough ahead we’ll never see it before we’re dead and…

The general concensus being that life’s on a day trip and only seeing the sights. That’s the opinion afoot, but we’ll put it to bed and think of another, however remote from the truth it may be. I see opportunity, once for a time it was a part of me, options and actions took it…

They think it’s the old me and they see what they want, continuing on they believe in the old one, the one that’s long gone. I can’t disillusion them those see what they want to men and so I live up to their own view of who they think I am. It’s a slap in…
