all will be well

cross my fingers hope to fly before my heart stops, and I wonder why some birds have wings but prefer to walk? nothing to say and yet you talk must be something in the water. If I catch the dawn before it can break would you take me to your heart or sit there in…

Urban scrawl

We use concentrate, become an inebriate can you relate to this. I made a wish it cost me sixpence the wish never came true who can I sue? if it’s as I suspected that everything’s connected then somewhere out there is a vagrant dream with my name on it. The heat is affecting me but I…

Poem 55

Soothsayers sightseers hands up all you volunteers we’re going in when time is thin upon the ground and frost is thick within the air and when your heart begins to pound nobody hears ‘cepting the volunteers but they’ll skate or skirt around you if you don’t sign up on the line I was a time…

The weirdest things

They’ll end in asylums crocheting drum kits for the hard of hearing because nothing is sacred when you cook with propane let confusion rain down on their heads. It’s Saturday entertainment rich men in their element gawking at inmates and they get in at mates rates because they know the chief ‘shrink’ I’m knitting torpedoes…

The atomic make up

Ever felt like what snowflakes feel when snowflakes melt or did you never look at it that way? Even on the surface there are surfaces, nothing’s as complicated as simplicity. Easy? you can’t buy easy but if you try it becomes easier. Listen ,poker face it’s two twenty five back at my place the Sun…

Unzipped

This rigmarole we play this useless game of find the Queen what I have seen needs looking at. The carpetbaggers tag me the killers body bag me I’m never going to get free so fuck ’em all. A nihilistic tendency to chop the feet from under me, if there’s a bigger picture it’s one I…

More from Louis Wainville

In order to feel that, one must eschew dog in favour of cat food, install a ski lift, give short change and shorter shrift, paint palindromes torch light garden gnomes take out pay day loans and skip town. It surely follows on that when the day has gone the night appears, and owls eyes scan…

The Lear

in a roundabout boat on a roundabout sea about to get around to becoming a new me, where the commonplace is rare and the air is so clear I can see almost forever when forever is near, rocking to and fro to the yonder where I go on a roundabout sea roundaboutly slow…

I can see daylight

Can you not see what is happening? we are being uploaded encrypted shipped in containers then downloaded, god only knows where. and you’ll say, ‘he’s mad. put him away, certify him’, but I’m only trying to open your eyes. if you think this is living then someone is guilty of giving you heroin, you must…

What lack of concern can there be?

how about, totally disinterested? I’ve seen as many have and will, government ministers with their snouts in the trough while they’re feeding us swill concern does not concern them, and you think your votes will make one iota change our status or the quota that we get? I believe as I do and that is…

Sabres rattle

Can we ever be sure that the intention was pure or are we the poorer for doubting?   I see a North Korea everywhere I look, a different name, but it’s the same old game they play.   There’s not a table big enough to sit around and talk over stuff, such nonsense as there…

Tricking the mind

There’s a Bob Dylan banjo playing slow in the background and cowboys on horses that don’t make no sound, trigger fingers itch but they wait for the pitch and the Sun’s going down in Richmond. Give your thanks to the Lords of the banks and the Queen of the five pound note, I promise to…

Psychologically

  the improbability factor attracts her like a moth to the flame   am I bad? what’s my name?   play the music make the song   the words go solo so long singledom.   I am decaying like Cesium on an atomic table   if you think that wouldn’t send you crazy don’t because…
