LOOKING BACK IN LANGOUR




am 
kinda in a place
where
the lights aint dim
and
the lights aint bright
and
i
see now
i
used wrestle them days all wrong
but
back
in
them days
it
was all i could see was right
cos
back
then
i decided no future was an easy out
and
time was nothing just nothing
but
seriously gnat chuff tight
and
now
time is all there is
and 
i
ask it small favours all polite
but
it
still
is
what
it always was
endurance rounds
in
a
bare
knuckle
fight

EXISTENTIAL POPS 2





A SIGH

might as well carry on

yes

ok then

lets
carry
on



VICARIOUS PIE IN THE VOYEUR CAFE

i talked myself down

back from the crowded edge

and
sat
in 
the 
Worlds gift shop cafe
with
bitter coffee & stale cake

the
circus looks SO rich
from
the
cheap 
seats

when youve nothing left to loose


ADULT

i am an adult

i look like one

i
am

simmer of anxiety / illness
contradictions / doubt
&
exterminated
prejudice

when 
i was a child
id look at adults 
        at their extra hair
                 used up eyes
                 huge shoes
                 &        
        smell their alien smell

were
they
all
a
simmer
of existential soup
too ?

I AM NOT DIANE FOSSEY; ANTHROPOLOGY POPS



1.

our
ancestor 
chimps 
proved themselves alpha
by 
waving branches to look bigger
beating 
their 
breasts
and 
chucking shit at contenders

like
we
might 
drive round in a big red bus
with
a
lie
painted
on
the
side


2.

we
forage

we
fuck

hooting at ugly showbiz

as
always


3.

our
ancestor chimps
fought
for 
females

ensured a future for their genes

and
for
endless
grooming
by
the
subservient 

tho
we 
are 
now
full of ourselves
our 
bridges / science / spaceships
our 
huge brain pans / language / self-awareness

we
are
also
not
so
different 

at all

TRILOGY VOTE-POPS



FRIDAY

i
brim over 
with
horror drama
and
i
say

  goodbye sweet progress
  at least
  i saw 
  your face

i am silent and sick

my
street
an
ancient projection

from
the
museums movie archive



WEEKEND

tears dry

straws are grasped

dominoes totter

but
trees are STILL green
the
lawn STILL needs mowing
in
the rain
thats
the same

and
we
watch

rerun make-over show

on
purpose



VEIL LIFTED

veil lifted

pull it down pull it down

cos
suddenly we are aware 
         we are naked
         and
         we 
         are
panic-bluffing

that
its
ok

when its not

and
our balls are in awful danger
on
the
sharp and spiky streets

EU REFERENDUM DAY 2




a long night

sleepless

thunder and floods

one red eye
on
the
news

this morning
its quiet

suns out

the cat hides in the jungle of the lawn
&
next door theyre watching paint dry

but 
i wonder what happened
&
what will it mean
&
what will fall down next
&
all the easy pop
on
the
radio
sounds more poignant today

i
wish
i
didnt care

like 
a cat 
a bird

or
a
tramp
steamer
in an adventure film

TRILOGY POPTARTS




ESTRANGED DIARY


write
partitioned storm walls
against
death

the
void

on a caveman wall

man
has ever done
a
harder thing



PRESSURE

naughty world i say

i
feel
like it must be me
who
makes
you
behave ?

UN-TECH WOODLAND

electric light
polished glass
towering steel

spacemen in spacepods

doing spacethings

&
i
dream of a forest
         a campfire

to
sit
by - on the nod

     till
     a
     dew wet dawn

THREE POP POPS



SPRONION POP

at the stove
building an omelet

black pepper & spring onion

when
rain fell outside

it smelt amazing

of
fresh earth & scrubbed sky

it put a zing in the afternoon 

and
made
me
need
to
piss
something awful


WINDOW POP

i look up

our blue ceiling
is a window
no glass in the frame

theres
ice sculptures up there
no one has seen

older
than
the
earth


CAPTAIN POP

the garden is a boat
an ark
on soil sea

i will do for captain

and
when a bee comes
  
  i
  say  thank 
       fuck !

he
works
and
spreads
an
antidote to extinction dread

l.o.v.e.




beyond bodies
beyond borders
beyond school dinners & orders
beyond blinkered lobbies
       antibodies & marauders

       love

inside our
failing meat
glows souls
prevailing heat

       called love

       nurse it
       disperse it
       dont ignore it
       or
       deplore it

cos soon we'll all be stardust again

GROWING CHICKENS WITHOUT STEROIDS




i take the streets uncoloured
but 
for 
the 
high 
cumulus
of 
phantom fevers

where
clothing lines become miniature
in
the
split-lens garden pie  

and
i
am 

  wondering

  wondering

  ill-formed straight thoughts
  slow as a summer farm
  growing 
  chickens
  without
  steroids
  or 
the whisky bomb

HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH








M - A QUADROPOP



me
her
the cat

stretched out 
on 
cushions and rugs

a peaceful soul sandwich
fresh
&
full

even
a
quiet
dribble
of
easy jazz
would be TOO much

-

out the
window
two clouds 
dont move

maybe they watch us

and
the limbs and fingers 
of climbing plants
are
still as cracks in cement

-

only
my
eyes
move

frightened to disturb
the fragile bones

i
musnt 
let on 
that ive 

NOTICED 

-

i will 
file this 
afternoon 
under M

for

Miracle

Moment

slip in RELIGIONS
tired
airport

sleep walked NUMBED
into 
a cheap
paper-back dystopia
happy
with new
promises
of more
Star Wars extravaganzas
