Cinema

One main street, a hick town fifteen light lit at sundown, by the dock a boat, in the graveyard one stone angel looks towards the sky watching as a gull floats by Deathly still in hicksville…

4×4 road trials

Out of the PJ’s a glass of O.J and down to the R.A I think that artistic endeavour is often the greatest pleasure unless you’re a piss artist. Cut out most of the letters and abbreviate everything, if they want to understand they will. Sobriety is not the key to longevity, but it may help…

Chattering monkey

My six pack’s taken a back seat, I lost the will and dropped the beat and there’s no one to ‘Meet me on the corner’ So I get to be a loner always wandering or wondering what the new day will bring. Wincarnis tonic? I drunk gallons of it and still not bionic, but I…

Ancient woodland

The clock keeps on ticking, there’s something quite sick in that, that being those minutes that pander to the hours that follow and the days that crowd through the ways I have walked. A sundial would suit me right down to the ground…

Prep time

There’s no accounting for taste waste, paste that on the blackboard, billboard still bored? be a fish. I wish but it seldom works, maybe my wish needs batteries. Later, back to the bowels of the earth, work and a dearth of humour but there’s a rumour that it’s nearly Christmas, it’s funny how the lights…

Seas of Saturday

This is the last drop off, the countdown’s begun to the great rip off and yet we’re still getting on for the ride. Perhaps we’ll learn when cities burn and the fat lady sings to the moon, something tells me that won’t be happening soon, too many cops and too many spooks watching us while…

Shopping trolleys

The destitute, the prostitute the homeless and the junkie, the word irresolute comes to mind when I can’t find any other and they’re sat huddled together toughing out the bitter cold weather, it’s a fact of life that life for some is no life at all. One act of kindness doesn’t make a bible, it…

The frequency of thoughts

There’s enough doom and gloom so this is about finding room for happiness. When I realised my heart was the mansion that my parents had given me to live in, things began to make sense. And when I found Her who would share in this blessing everything fell into place…

Sober up Saturday

Most of us are the ghosts of us and what we were, we wear the face of another time when we thought that other time was the only time, we are like an old picture card from a box of Brooke Bond, that we look fondly on. And one day when we’ve gone away to…

Seven teen shadows

When community spirit is in the bottle that’s passed around and the only common ground is the parking lot you plot up in and the ‘Social’ is not very sociable when they sanction you and it’s non-negotiable, you’re basically screwed. Honest men would turn to crime and later try to turn back time and nothing…

Long running

Half awake and not nearly enough asleep I should keep shorter hours, get wired to the terminal pump out something seminal and no! not fluid. Life can be hard then it’s off to the knackers yard to be knackered? strange I thought I already was. But tomorrow is another way to keep today as yesterday…

Exercise #95

I was resting in my bed and wrote out a notice which read, DO NOT DISTURB. then I was disturbed to find I had to disturb myself to put it on the outside of my door. some things are not thought through though i do try…

wtf #61

I saw a man that looked like me and he saw a man that looked like him and both of us began to grin, slightly frightened, what ould this mean? was it, in fact, a dream? the man that looked like me winked as I blinked or it may have been the other way around…

T minus..

As is so often I am in my own company, solitary, alone on the balcony, calculating the odds as to how God’s going to receive me and believe me when I say, it’s not going good for me, well, not if Old Nick gets his way, such are the things that occupy my mind…

Beachheads and strongholds

When you look like Punch because Judy’s given you a battering and the audience were watching but only gave a smattering of applause which sounded as weak as this did. At least when I am falling I know where I’m heading. Et Tu, say what? said who? I am leaning into a history with the…

The crash dummy

Tightening your belt fighting austerity banging on the doors of those in authority, easier to blow a safe (and I am aware that blowing a safe could be construed as being sexual) but if you’re thinking that way you deserve to be locked up. In confession he gave me absolution, told me to steer well…

Reality trip

When you’re asleep and you’re dreaming and she says, coffee? and you say, with cream in and then you wake and it plays out like the dream she says, coffee and you say with cream. something very strange is going on. and then you’re listening to her talk with your two eyes up there hanging…

Wind tunnels

    You stir it and stir it and the whirlpool is there, it looks so inviting, so you suck it inside. words dribbling down your chin, but you’re still sucking it in as if stirring alone will not win you a place at the foot of god’s throne.   Proofread and ready, are you…
