Storytime

I read from Thessalonians the only ones who knew or so the story goes, but who knows? I also read the Famous Five, Black Beauty, the Secret Seven and the Diary of Anne Frank. I have a lot to be thankful for and I am thankful for that…

Tongue in cheek

Think that Jesus died in Tooting from shooting up some dodgy gear? you’re wrong, he went away on holiday, took a different job and got away from the madness of his everyday existence, but he’d promised me assistance not this subsistence life I live.. ..and now the good Lord works for the water board turning…

Dark matter matters but what matters more is the matter in dark matter and someone says, something the matter with you? If you think of a black hole as a giant Pac-Man swallowing planets like pills there’s something the matter with you. I haven’t showered yet and that matters, but that matter can easily be…

Fortunately forever

It is never what you see or perhaps sometimes in the corner of your eye the girl you see walking by is real and you do see her. Many times on the tines of a fork I’ve seen Romans walk in formation talk Neopolitan thinking they were in Brooklyn but really just imagining. Murderous deeds…

Before the coffee kicks in

What if, we’re just simulations running in the background of a cosmic fairground? probably not likely but if you’re like me then you wonder. The universal traffic lights, the stars that twinkle in the nights and can you tell me, anyone, who’s seen stars shine in the daytime? Programmed to roam across the screen we…

October break

    While you’re thinking about the voice control someone is controlling the person that’s pulling your strings,   everything’s cloak and dagger for some and some things are cloak and dagger for everyone, I’m still wondering, who is it that pulls the strings and makes the canary sing?   It is as it is…

Blips

  Rain, thinking it signifies the end of the Summer, I root out my galoshes, my raincoat  and sou’ wester one time a Beau Geste in the hot sand, but now best to take a hold of your cool hand and go splishing and sploshing and maybe some splashing as well. Autumn is upon me…

Houdini did it

    Molecules, those chains that run through your veins bind you just the same as the chains in your mind.   You choose to adjust to, but nobody likes you so why bother?   We’ve always been tied, whatever powers there’s been we know that they’ve always lied and we in our ignorance (which…

  Who else got a DM from the PM? We watch them scurry and wonder what’s the hurry they’re just getting more of the same and the same is a game of Monopoly moving society closer towards the brink…

The missing link

  Blind Pew ran aground on a sandbank and gave thanks to the Lord, saying,  salvation was my destination and it looks like I’ve finally arrived and what was Blind Pew doing in a canoe? Falling’s exciting an adventure to delight in until you reach your stop. Piracy like poetry can be random and some…

    When you hear the ringtone, the dialling tone or any tone, put down the phone no one is at the other end there is no friend to chat too, you can’t get through to no one there.   As a very young man, I found that tying string to a tin can pulling…

Flying backwards

  We think that it’s  about the dream until we wake And what makes us come awake Is the feeling we can’t take itSo we dream again It’s a failure which some would say does not exist to them I’d say you’ve missed the point I keep coming back to keep on track to find…

The crumbling

..and we thought heaven sent went with the package, when all that we got was the wreckage. hardly surprising that the chip on our shoulder became bigger the older we got. Times may change but it still smells of stale sweat. We could give up this fighting, get some light in our lives, but what…

Posing for pictures

What does it say about me? because it’s always about me isn’t it? unless it’s about you, sometimes it is and how true is that. Interference, static on the line holds the lien on my time and that’s no time at all. or maybe one day when the chains rust away we’ll be free to…

Ear popping carriage hopping this tube seems like it’s never stopping at my stop. I’m tired and when tired I get cranky. My sight become focused and yet I cannot see, that’s what being cranky does and it does it to me. In the slow unwind there is or so I find a release of…

What is real?

reality television comes a very poor second to the moment you’re living in and some live for that moment only to be rubbed out by the artificial lighting of virtual reality which is only virtually real. Illusionists are only good if you fall for the illusion most do leading me to ask again, what is…
