The Heel-Click Blues

  
I can’t speak of course
for the endless packs
of public-school jokers    
littering the countries trains  
with their overcoats    
and briefcases    
   
how they congregate in droves  
with Costa cups up and down  
slate grey platforms, judging  
every sports brand    
and hair extension  
   
talking endlessly  
into devices too big to hold  
as they amplify themselves  
amongst rapturous gaffawing  
coming from microchips  
paid for in cold hard cash.  
   
Not sure how    
they ended up here—  
but I think of courthouses  
and stamped social cheques;  
how they all need barristers  
in this town  
   
how everyone craves acquittal    
for trying to live, trying to justify  
crimes to put weed in their lungs  
and bad food in their bellies  
   
and I feel it—  
   
I feel it every time  
the heels click against
Northern Rail concrete    
   
that divide    
between what is  
and what should be.

on trust & nostalgia

 
you speak
about trust in
a nostalgic tongue

how time heals
in strange ways
while hanging
on to hope,

my mind forgets

all the shouting,
shards of glass,
long nights spent
carving disasters
into my skin

without
making a
sound,

how sleep fought less to meet me
as my bones began to grow older

so i befriended night
learnt every shadow,
how it manipulates
shapes of chaos
and destruction,

began to
scratch them out
with my unsung hero
and a cup of tea
steaming out
my horrors

because,

trust is a
dangerous thing
when home
broke you
in the first
place.

Things Rammstein have taught me about living

 

there are pussies  
and many dicks  
 
hearts belong  
in chains—  
 
set everyone  
on fire  
 
fan the  
fucking  
flames.

(NoPoo 267) Drinking Sighs

soft sighs parted thighs
drinking sunlight from darkness
dripping pouring forth

the epitome of the apple



my laugh
is legacy—

it bellows
.

and
he lives,



there.

Sanity

it's hanging on
by a piece of string
called sanity
trying not to fall
into a slushy pool
of grim thoughts

locked within
are screams
waiting to be born
the world's gone crazy

we long for green fields
blue skies and mountains
not cities of concrete
harbouring death

at times
It seems like there’s nothing left
until I think about it
then there’s loads

the silence takes it all away

the rain has been constant
for days now, I hear it bang
on corrugated roofs

I’d imagine
the trees welcome it
welcomes  the wind too

a seagull breaks the silence
I’ve grown to detest them
and their load ness

I told her father
and he cried down the phone
I had no words for him
nothing of an explanation

we carried her casket  
then we watched it lowered
and I grabbed a hold of my son
because his heart and soul
had fallen on top of her

at times,
it seems like there’s nothing left
then I think about it
and there’s loads

the silence takes it all away

#NoPoo  number something

within scattered dreams
mysterious shadows fly
crisis of the mind
