When dreams don’t work

Silks

The iconoclast may have the last say, God seems to have had his or her day and things move on, but if God has truly gone where does it leave me? up a gum tree? (well at least I may bag a bargain) it’s hard then to deny the denier who would destroy with impunity…

After Omega

What if it’s a closed fairground when we get there? what if a good God didn’t care enough to put out candy floss? but what if it’s a citadel? I don’t know not that I ever did I think about it though. There’s still time and still time and I am quiet most of the…

It follows on and that’s a fact

Kissing Xenon

You’re never alone not even when you’re dead which is probably the only time you have to be alone, there’s always an angel looking in on you to see if you would like to do one of seven hundred million activities not a moment of peace not even in eternity which is just an infinite…

The record makers

Crawling on an urban highway thinking this is the way to go but we should know by now that this is not how evolution works. we’re heading towards Armageddon with blinkers on our eyes and we’re burning the bridges behind us while still hoping that some God will find us. Boom. we bust and all…

Coiling springs

If you could look forward and see yourself looking back, wouldn’t that be a neat trick? Time dilation aside would you like to ride on that exploding mass? Or to pole dance on the edge of a black hole where no light escapes and be as blind as a mole. Peaks and troughs as the…

Hymn time

Let it come morning let the sun shine on me rid me of this darkness and the blindness I see. Bring me awakening bring me the singing of birds and books to be read full of words. If thine is the kingdom let it come and shine on until the day is full and the…

The fourth enlightenment

Anyways thank God for Saturdays because I’ve finally understood that it ain’t no bleedin’ good to have the five days beforehand if you ain’t got nothing planned for the weekend.

Time is fixed to a floating point

Movable most assuredly, but in a framework made by the ironworks for the works committee of the cooperative, a society of friends. we concoct a strategy carry out a plan but man will meet the end unprepared. Why should I care when I’m gone someone will be there to carry on. and if it’s good…

Dusting for prints

unreliable evidence or irrefutable truth? it’s all proof and if that’s what you need use it. ‘One way or another’, said Cain. ‘I will kill my brother’ again and again, the old God smote more in the olden days, there was lots more sinners back then, now the new God gives detention with the occasional…

Exercising inertia

Bounty hunters

A God or a Titan? I think that might be right on the button. In for a pound and you’ll be in for a penny any more? if there’s muck there’ll be brass that’s another. Adages are natures way of saying, get a life. but good or bad Jack the lad will always be Jack. Intelligence…

The 57th key

   Years ago when death flowed over the window sill, holding my breath to still my heart and under blankets with my eyes shut tight against the darker darkness of eternal night I prayed to who knows who that they would make things right   it happened so that darkness went, it seems that who…

Feeding colds to starve a fever.

God fearing dog eared and hard bitten, used up and chewed. I allude of course to myself, but God fearing? good God above one does not fear love I expect this was explained by theologians at the seminary to which I wasn’t invited imagine how delighted that I would have been to have sat in…
