#NoPoo

Today

numbers seem so trite
to compare life with
nothing out of sight
in life or death

its still all there
the thoughts left hanging
energy on air
never plucked to speech

there's no final words
sometimes when it hurts
too bad
I remember your voice

ten months of your absence
still missing you very much
your words your text
your voice

its autumn now
our month, my month
I miss the reds of the leaves
where you are.

Hibernating underground
Waiting to awake

thank you

 
 
I never wanted to fight you
for blunting me;
for clutching that torso
made of strange clay
moulded with damp fingers  
into something half-human
 
but youó  
you were part of me;
not many people know that.
 
Guess I  
donít talk about it often;
our quiet desperation
 
measured in boots
and spent cigarettes
stumbling their way
through backstreet bars  
that wrote our  
goddamn  
end.
 
I never wanted to fight you
for becoming me;
for sharing our secrets  
made truth in old blood
until our battles were done
 
until our scars, boy
never existed.

council estate parable

Watched my neighbour
lose his collective shit
on a Sunday morning
when a grotty caravan
halfway through
restoration moved
from a nearby driveway
to find itself parked outside
his perfectly manicured
garden

pristine lawns
annoy me at the best
of times, but never more so
than when theyíre attached
to snobbery, rolled up
in some turf based bullshit
that England canít have a leaf
or a twig or a fucking fibre
out of place

and I know what he thinks
of my front yard

truth is,
I keep it messy
so it looks barren
from the outside
because nobody
robs a rough house

if theyíre gonna
steal from anybody
itíll be Steven six-shears
over there with the fake
wagon wheel planter
hanging above his
Japanese maple tree

so what Iím really saying
is that grotty caravan
that appeared outside
his brochure quality lawn
was a stark reminder
that there is always
somebody out there trying
to make the best of things
in the midst of this
piss-poor state
sponsored Lego set

and always somebody
with a stick up their ass
who forgot exactly
where they came from.

Make of that
what you will.

the damned

 



when it's
your turn
to greet
them

let the gods
run in fear,

your fists
have bullied
their way
out of
hell.

an uncensored resignation letter

 




For my manager,  

 who tells my colleagues that  
†'I never contribute anything'  

I pray the bacon always burns on the grill,  
slightly undone cheeseburgers made by untrained crew members, loose bolts on the potato cutter, more flies in the toilet, runny diluted flavoured milkshakes that are never perfectly marinated,  

I pray for sweaty workshirts stuck to his skin especially when he's on the grill that always burn the bacon, a score of one out of a hundred on secret shoppers, where the only thing he got right was barking orders at the crew members but nothing to show for it, †

I pray for thousands of investigations  
to be carried out on him, leaving HR to remain constantly on his back while micro managing his work ethics, a ceiling that floods the entire prep room with water, customer toilets that never flush, lazy new crew members that constantly have a shit on company time while taking a sip of their drink for 10 minutes between serving customers, †

I pray for shitty reviews, over budgeting on labour, cold sanitizer, late food and equipment delivery schedules, awful closing shifts, cheese slices stuck in between the tiles, pink tinted fries, useless gobby cashier workers and money that goes over or under accompanied by frozen cashier screens that always need a reboot,  


I don't pray for another crew member †
like me though, no crew member with customers service skills like me ever again, if one happens to show up I hope they leave as quick as changing †
their own pants,  

I hope they leave quicker than I did. †

Today is not the day, and I am not the one.

 
 
Iím not sure what it is
that makes my presence
such a threat to you
in your feckless world
 
but I too
would be  
scaredó
 
scared that  
I am the reason
they name storms
after women.
 
 
 
Maybe prepare
yourself for that.

Donít fix me

I stood by the sink  
as I watched tap water rise up
a white-wombed bowl  

watched it fill
to the brim,
then overflow.

Itís all I †
could think about;  
this metaphor for humans  
and their inherent need  
to fix things.  

Truth is  
people donít †
need fixing  
or correcting  

what they need †
is allowing †
to heal, †
to be healed  

to simply †
be.  

Maybe we write  
that way too.
