Inconclusive

    I was in Bethlem though it should have been Jerusalem and perhaps it was.   One should never tell too much because they’ll think you’ve been touched by the magic brush even if you haven’t.   who’s normal anyway? normal’s so passe, weird is here and here it’ll stay until they put me…

Thyroid

all dealing off the bottom of the deck, politicians ought to swing by the neck. This is not a political post, it’s just a lamppost that I’m leaning on, because George Formby’s gone dontya know. I also played dominoes with ‘Fats’ he’s gone too and that’s that, basically which all ingredients are made from is…

Crax in the ceiling

Nobody’s sure anymore about what we felt sure of before we weren’t sure and I am not sure anyway. But we built our houses from straw spit and sawdusted the floor what were we waiting for? absolution? absolutely? well Pan played the pipes like a flute he was a ram of a man, are you…

That feeling

subliminal messages that come through the radiators, radio signals from space, and yet I can’t place that feeling I’m feeling and it feels like it’s all slipping away. old at twenty four and every door shut in your face. Too many beggars and not enough time too many bodies stretched out on the line and…

The inmates

Anonymity does not limit me in the corridors of insanity where conformity is not a word used. True to their words the guards of the wards ward off the devil that tries to bring me down to his level, but I can rise above it on a carpet from Baghdad sold to me by Sinbad…

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…
