A SOMETHING



a drill
a sander
a something

like someone unzipped a pocket
of angry white noise

council estate scientist 
experimenting thru paper walls

just
when
i
want
to
lay down

ORWELLIAN RIPTIDE



what if its the clouds
that
are metal 
and concrete

the sky that is polished glass

and the ground under our boots
that
is nebulous

like
soup
like
steam

swamp of passive inaction
        
        of the dormant anger
        of inherited guilt
        
        of decades 
        of distraction and denial

sucking and writhing
with
dangerous
deep
orwellian riptides

A TALE OF ORDINARY FOLKS



the young guy in the corner shop
dont
like
dogs
at all

hates it if they get in there

even if theyre tiny or old

so 
sometimes
i will carry them out for him
when 

am 
i
there
squinting at the headlines
and
buying
crisps and rizla

i dump them on the pavement
where
he
will
watch them on his cctv
with
a
wary
eye

after i firmly closed the door
