For your destruction, it’s there in your mind Porous after a kiss to your eyes It’s how you spoke Of your life, In that little red book full of thoughts The television in your mind Is playing this into your head So you can understand From someone who has hair and shoes Tall enough for […]

Occult
Occult

With each little thread I pull It hurts to pull that string When you close your eyes sometimes It makes me wonder About you, you fragile thing To roll around, pull you apart Like a silly ball of yarn Can I push, can I crush Or douse with flame or water You let no light […]

The Landing
The Landing

The aliens arrived and they read our DNA just like a book. They had no interest in our words. They sampled the oceans and its diseases, a pathology specimen from the self-destructive damsel of this solar system, an off-smelling primordial soup that has sat on the counter for too long, infested with small creatures who […]

Halfbrite moda

This metropolis is far too bright I try to see far past refracted lights Home is everywhere, but I can’t find it A startled ghost, lost in the spectrum This is how the future used to sound It was so fast, a short-lived moment Swells of strings in basic essence In the blink of an […]

Of cockroaches and men
Of cockroaches and men

I have lived with more cockroaches than men This city, emerald beacon that it is It seems to reel them in.

Radium Girl
Radium Girl

She thinks she knows what’s good for her A glow she can’t deny And as she paints the time Her youth runs dry She’s a radium girl White teeth, bright smile Not one for wisdom’s pearls All the while she lies But this girl’s on time Lead coffin fused Jaw clenched, skin brined For sale: […]

The waves
The waves

Hide your face in the dark Here nobody has a mouth Streets are echoes Of the past We play our part We are still making our way Through the months Through the days Through the myths and Through discovery Burning through the Greek alphabet

Curtains
Curtains

I float away through broken time Alongside a ray of light Next is pain And the ribbon’s at the centre We are nearly at the end I heard your voice But can’t see your face, A little death from too much light As I came back, it’s red shifted Lights off Curtain driver justified I […]

Spills
Spills

I am an ossuary For the skulls and bones Who’ve seen my insides raw I can envelop and expand To hold imprints of loved ones past For unloved familiar faces For warm strangers It is now baggage of my own Imprints of film and life That I feel I’ve lived But now these imprints cause […]

Madeleine
Madeleine

They burst apart when we’re asleep These unexamined inconsistencies Memories, a fibrous mass Weigh something on a pair of scales Energy When you ask, you change The order of things and The things in the order Elegy Write it down and spurn Contrarian words I would have said On the street two ships of Thesius […]

Oberon
Oberon

You are holly topiary A king of the fairies A singing canary This weird castle suits you You ain’t a crown like that But those stairs leading up Surely do suit your cats Rapunzel stuck in the fire escape Goldilocks without a fussy taste I wish I knew time, Alas I only have haste He’s […]

Neuron Star
Neuron Star

Now here’s an eclipse As the blood slowly drains Away from my eyes and down from my heart A neuron breached its way too far With gravity of magnetars It is not a lapse of time. It is not a prayer for the sun. Fuck St Valentine and everything he’s never done.
