Selfie stick

You, have got to be kidding me go back to ’83? not in my worst dreams ’83 is no longer in my vocabulary, I used to be a man about town gadding here and there, but I’ll spare you the details suffice to say, rails are not the things to go off, but I went…

Socially awkward some might say backward and not known to be forward at all, yet the fall and the rise of the sun in his eyes showed a picture of who he really was…

Breezes

Taking me beside a becalmed sea on an afternoon estate, but I wait for the atoms to smash and the storms to arrive, I survive only in a half forgotten melody that mother used to sing to me. And yet these cartwheels I turn, turn me about to race the wind. Time travels slowly between…

It’s all up for grabs

On sale to the highest bidder and glad to get rid. When you’re down on your uppers you won’t get up taking downers, leave the pills and take to the hills, they’re the safest bet. This day lasted forever Wednesday always does, but the sun goes down on London and the town will sleep. Lot…

Talking out loud

Beating myself up and kicking myself when I’m down. I am done with doing it too many self-inflicted wounds, but I understand that some people love it when some people go under, I often wonder about them. Getting on with being John is a fight in itself, I don’t need spectators…

Things that drop off

Minus two degrees in and freezing, so I’m jogging along like a crazy man trying to garner some heat. They say it’ll snow I don’t know if that’s true, but my hands are quite blue because I forgot to take gloves. If I don’t jog I shall shrivel away to become an outline in the…

Loading, please wait

This is the second day a Wednesday and unlike the first day in every way. Work? I have yet to decide if I should join in or stay here and hide. But it’s twenty nineteen if I don’t stay in the scene I become part of the background. Think I’ll make me a coffee and…

Shop soiled

I should get on with the busy ness thank my lucky stars and curse a bit less but fuk it I’ll put that thought where it belongs which is in the box marked, can’t tell right from wrongs. Some go a mile a minute join everything and think they’re in it I think they’re on…

The saddle tramps

We used to be maverick quick on the draw and quicker on our feet, we were lone star taking it as far as we dared and not caring if anyone cared. what are we now? we’re in yesterday shoes reading yesterday news wondering who’s next. I won’t fall into the trap of thinking that’s that…

Nineteen thirty

When you can’t quite give it a name but you know it’s the same old same and you’re used to playing the game so you go right ahead. and where is here? far away or near? you’re never as certain as you once were When she sings like Al Bowlly soulfully slowly I think I’m…

The patch

It’s nonsense to rely upon the time when time has almost gone, but we hunger for one moment more that’s just the way it is. the young man at the coalface with a face just like an angel sees it from a different angle as he climbs up worn down cobblestones on the way home…

Watching

The curiosity looks too much like me ‘to be or not to be’ a coincidence. It creeps suspiciously silently, it is almost next to me and the curiosity frightens me. Even when I count to ten close my eyes and open them it’s still there. and more than curiously its eyes are not on me…

Slapped down

I don’t see much evidence of the one they call his eminence, perhaps I am blind to the faith. And yet the truth is nearer to me in the wonders of natural beauty so why deny? maybe genetically I’m wired up to the wrong strand. I hope so at least I can then understand that…

Combinations

Then as if to blind me as I soared into the sun your words came up behind me, but my mind was tied into the star and so I couldn’t find you. One more dream to put in the rack one more going and then coming back and what was all that about? Morning brings…

Eighty sixing the sideshow

We’re just treading water, jumping on the spot, we got nothing and they’ve got the lot very nice for them (Said in a sarcastic voice) when we have no choice but to do as they want. I’m wanting out of it there’s only so much bullshit that one can shovel and I’ve shoveled a shitload…

Well, I woke morning broke to stoke my fire and so I stake my claim on every flicker of my eyes that catch the light from every flame and though things look the same as yesterday today could be the start of something new…

Wednesday

If I’m in pain and I am and I will be again, is it someone’s plan for revenge? is someone out there to get me? you get me? I pulled a muscle which is like pulling a girl without the attraction of nice things to come and yes not many muscles to go. Pain is…

Workout

Fold up the night and put your sleep away today is Wednesday, yippee said not many any more would be too many. I’m running a fever which is my daily exercise a film across my eyes, streaming? getting old? you must be dreaming life has just begun…
