UNDER WATER TRILOGY



1. FISHY HAIKU

fish deep in the sea

(have)

angry-blank alien faces

(and)

manage
without
phones

(or jeggings)


2. THE GRADUATE

  i 
saw the Graduate

added it to fav film list

cos
of
the
ending / dodging eyes on a doom-truth bus
and
cos
of
'plastics Benjamin'
and
cos
he
bangs his head on a wall
and
holds a boob like a fool
and
cos
of
how
he stares at his fish / epic ennui
but
mostly
cos
of
the Sounds Of Silence
making
blackness a beautiful tune
and
too
how he sinks into the pool / into Silence and Isolation 

shut-down
in
divers
blinkers


3. SWIM

at school in PE
they
booked
the
local pool
and
i
swam awesomely 
effortlessly
like a fish-boy

as id always known how

then
kids talked to me
kids respected me

that
one
time

it
didnt
last
cos 
when
my eyes weakened from reading and genes
and 
for 
1000 other unsayable reasons -  

  adolescent maelstrom
  of
  sportswear cliques
  fights in farahs
  electro 45s
  and 
  the
  unfathomable undrunk discos in village halls   

  i
stopped swimming

and
there
ended a thing
i
was
good
at

weed

NIGHT AND DAY




night goes
where night goes
when
night
is
done

and day comes in
like a neighbour comes in
when
they
dont
NEED
anything
but 
TALK


Speech, Balloon, Talk, Bubble, Moderation, Discussion

READING THE YELLOW PRESS




cooking-hot 2015 & scientists worry

they always worry
thats what KNOWLEDGE does for ya - ha 

less than 20 yrs 
they say
less than 20 yrs

bleh & meh & netflix . . .
cos thats AGES . . .

eve of destruction ?
we read the yellow press

  i 
sit out there 
see the pm smog 
haze the hills
into shadow mountains

  i 
sit out there
the moons clear eye
turn
to
misty care-home cataracts 

    &
  anyway
if our shoes melt
  we
    can 
      buy 
        more
          cant we ?

POPTARDS / POPTARTS / JR WORD SLAGAMUFFINS ( NOTEBOOK CLEAR OUT )


1. NOT MY TURN TODAY

  like 
  me
the bath is 100% water
with
a
tower of bubble-head foam 
            empty
            and
            beautiful            
            whirling in a swirl-circle 
            the way the milky way does
and
the cat is calm 
           cool
           curious
watching with wide eyes
  and 
  the
jazz dances by itself
  out
  in
  the
  kitchen

and
today Everyone Else
can
fret stress worry
about
Our World Earth 
            
            its plastic 
                8th 
                continent
            its bombs-runners
                on the
                french 
                wire
              and 
            the 
  looming doom of weather

instead
of
me


2. POMETRY TALKING

i write a pome again

write
what
i
call
a
poem 

and it tells me
that
i
am
doing 
ok


3.  LOOK HARD FOR THE SILVER LINE

the first casualty of sickness
is
cash

others follow

but none better be your S.O.H.

cos really
nothing is funnier -

illness
is
a faulty meat pie


4. DAGENHAM RELIGION

headphones on -
a Pixies rallying call
and
the sky is HUGE again
        is more than god 
        is brushed with 
                   softest 
                   white
                   over
              baby blue

my hand rests on an opened book

out here 
        is a window
                   to behind Things
           
             invisible
             wind
             breaths
             on
             my
             naked
             feet

and i dont dance or even get up
but
soon
i
might walk slowly about the lawn
    
    with my 
    
            arms 
            out

            like a plane

MORNING WONDERING




  the 
postman is late

  hes out there
  in
  the
struggling hatchback streets
  
          where
  clots of kids
  eyes down on glass palms
  walk to school in black
    to 
    unlearn wonder

  i write small 
    blab-pops
    of
eurgh & unmurder
    of
whatever & meh

then run a bath

wondering how many of YOU
  regularly
    piss
      in
        yours

and of Time / the rolling-over Sun
and
how
we
locked
it
into a machine we wear
  and
  live our lives
  on 
  its 
  numb47s

PIGGIN AWFUL BURGER - A MEMORY POP




  when 
my grade C army boots
first touched German soil
it
was
German car park black top
and
i
emptied 
out
a
long dark stream of beer piss
next 
to
a night coach from London
full
of sleeping Pink Floyd fans 

and the sad gas station
vending machine burger

had in the dirty dawn
was
the
most
pigging awful burger 
i ever had ever

we drove to the Hockenheim F1 Ring 
where

drank 100 tins of Jim Beam and cola 
met some US GIs after acid
when i was badly roasting for some weed
and
secretly i wept a little
from exhaustion and truth
when 
the
band
played
One Of These Days

UNDER ADVISEMENT




someone else blows wind hot and cold

someone else dealt the cards

deck fixed by half blind and godless thing

best
be 
flexible like willow
and
pull up your collar
in
the
fried chicken neon dusk

bounce no more than water
with 
your 
     Game Face On
  
  and
  show the skinny suit dudes
  in
  the
  camo jegging high street

  how
  to 
  survive
Orwells neo-nightmare
of
Big Bro cameras 
on
our
cherished squares of glass

with
simple Heart Art / Books Books Books
Warm Hands
Baths
and

    Powerful 
            Empathetic 
                      Tolerant
    
    Smiles
