UntuitionHard to follow



Tunnels
Tunnels

The light at the end of the tunnel will be a train At which point you will wake up a second last time If you trust your eyes You’ll live If you trust the Logos You’ll prosper If you trust Logic Blindness and Hope will both perish Salome came of some 205 pages in a […]

Ganymede
Ganymede

I was Ganymede of Galileo, not of Zeus, protected by a battered skin in pits from disease of the body and glacier scars dragging across the skin from disease of the mind. Scratch the insect bite until you break skin; the itch has now gone. The insect has not. You will wake up again, unremarkable […]

Obtund
Obtund

Touch your skin to cold my child Point your eyes toward the sun And keep your finger in the blue flame As did Ual and Ory, twins named Perception Remembered as loss and victory In a game where hierarchy has no place Forget discomfort, take on one real sensation Rearranging merely flour of the bread […]

Chondriac
Chondriac

This gentle friction can strip off thin skin clean Like a medicine bottle’s label soaking in warm water Once he touched down, my chest started to burn Fear of that too small to see, every man is flawed An apple a day is a drip of poison as another face gets pale Pavlovian fear of […]

Satellites
Satellites

For beauty’s found inside abandoned sheds Filled by strange tools for romantic future use We are sitting on the silent ledge, no winds The past is partial, fragmented Tainted by the moment’s colour For nostalgia is wonder Stripped down, purified and unattainable Instinctive learning, sending searchlights for signs Excited by the unknown, that’s still familiar […]

Spaceman
Spaceman

Sleeping like a nomad at night in the international space station, they said you hit the ground headfirst if you don’t start by aiming at the low hanging fruit before flying out to Mars. With memories fragmented across the universe, past times are still well versed in all our worlds, alas the singularity may only […]

Mono
Mono

The more sources of light beam to illuminate your sides The more shadows will stalk you on the way along your strides Solo, duo, trio or quo, we are limited To seeing only mirrors of ourselves

Youth
Youth

Her eyes glimmered like green marbles rolling across a classroom floor. It was a memory that left me bruised – like the knees under her socks, which were covered in scrapes from blissfully playful and carefree ignorance; those first few strikes of exposure to the outside world. Her cracked lips smiled at me awkwardly from […]

Puss in Boots
Puss in Boots

Black lace over the lampshade creates haze It is hard work to climb up To a mound so smooth and steep A landscape for sore eyes and long days In absence leads poor men to weep Then she will hover As naive lambs, they start off sober Her piercing stare adds to the fuel Burning […]

Cream and Milk
Cream and Milk

With wells for eyes And skin that’s silk We homogenize together like cream and milk Running my fingers through blond hairs in the morning Translucent in the sunlight, soft to the touch If I was an explorer, I have been sent to launch If I was an alien I have touched down my craft On […]

Lime Chicken Kiev
Lime Chicken Kiev

I looked outside to see The lawns were covered in broken baubles Took a walk towards the bees For the honey, not because it’s noble The stench of rain was in the air I ran amuck to see myself In the reflection of a skip’s lid A nihilistic head under unruly hair Street dogs were […]

Smoke and Mirrors
Smoke and Mirrors

If our minds are comfortable and uninspired we will remain unevolved, like Southern marsupials, free of competition, inside a vacuum, too stagnant and stale to encourage change. For change is a forceful, effort-requiring utilitarian behaviour. For change is the reaction to discomfort. Few have enough intellectual discomfort to experience willpower. We will continue to look […]
