its a beating heart
on an overdose of love
needing so much more

Antithesis. (flight instructions for the good natured)

 
O' flight      
of      
wonderment      
      
s o a r i n g      
       
multicolored      
majesty      
splayed      
wide      
of      
open wings      
fly, fly      
       
hinted harms      
left upon      
tarred mouths      
       
[flap]      
       
confidence      
climbs      
carried upon      
rambunctious      
wind      
       
[flaps]      
       
chattering      
of plots-      
gushing      
agrees to      
garner      
lowly      
grace      
       
sloughs      
shedding      
charms of snakes      
       
gale forces      
at my back      
Oh,      
fly .. Fly ..  FLY      
       
higher than      
staggering      
gull      
       
[ardent flaps]      
       
as power      
twirls      
spins      
dives to climbs      
       
true      
aerial      
display      
of      
breathless finds      
       
in tricks      
midair,      
feats of      
uncommon      
bravery show      
       
[flaps.. flaps]      
       
in gains      
of altitude      
fly now... careful      
fast to slow      
       
slow to gains      
where momentum      
seems      
to surely burn      
       
fly until      
there's no return      
fly into      
the dream (be)yonder      
where      
missing is opposite      
of the constant buzzing      
foolish fodder      
       
views of      
checkerboard maps      
as perspective      
wanes    
       
last of farewells      
to what remains      
unhappy ants      
have begun      
to lose their gains      
       
[flapping becomes a constant state]      
       
       
       
fly      
       
       
       
       
                             fly      
       
       
       
       
fly
 
 
 
 
now
 
disappears
 
 
 
all  
the pain  
 
 
 
 
that  
each  
flap  
erased

He who lives in tragedy

 
I often
think about it

how you would
ask me to sing
never wanting
to hear my song

how this body
was unworthy
of presence
outside a show.

Sometimes

bones float freezing water
below a lighthouse sun
questioning sinking rafts—



there were no lifeboats
in your reach



no
God

Unsounded.


I can't fully remember
how you sound

not exactly
not anymore

Your timbre
or that sass
distinctive in style
retorts, slick and searing
and that laugh
yeah
That. Tremendous. Laugh.

I'd barter away most things
without an iota of care
to hear it... just once more

My mind accesses it as
warped and warbly
What I think-perhaps or maybe
it might have sounded like
close, but not quite
only a fuzziness, is there in certain recall

As a kid
you would return from weekly travel—
we'd be excitedly waiting,
for our favorite 'celebration'
every Friday night,
was full of
airplane wings
travel sized Planter's peanut 'gifts'
along with sheer exhaustion
that swelled the bag
under each of your tired eyes
Despite this— (or maybe because of)
you bounded through the front door
full of energy,
(energy, from God knows where)
"Where're my girls at!!?"
"Anyone seen three troublemakers!!?"
Demands, lovingly harsh
and wrought with perfect steel


[as little delighted screams rang out]

Sounds, now shadows
of memories
aching in want
of recollection

Sometimes, I marvel at my unawareness,
that it is all slowly fading away...

-that's when I inadvertently cry
my daddy's girl cry-

I used to listen to
this old answering machine
the kind with cassette tapes
that recorded the outgoing
and incoming
I was tickled at the verve
and deeply adored the utter effectiveness

Gone now,
is that recording
like you....
withered away to dust
along with the very sounds
of my origins
My history,
the very beginnings
were his voice
and those sounds
that moulded
and shaped
me

"da da" of course
my first words
(so says the very sparsely filled out baby book)

A lifetime, to date
spent listening.

Selfsoothing
this soul—my soul
tonight
in
recognizing
recollecting
reminding



his
particular
cherished
voice.



and maybe, just maybe
if I try hard enough









I'll hear you laughing




ever
so
faintly

It’s American week in Lidl

It still baffles me
why it feels the need
as a German supermarket
to a European audience
(but here we are)

my guts were running
on fucks and fresh air
after a day of working
and I knew He was sat
in the car, wondering
if his belly thought
his throat had been cut

so I pick up hotdogs—
a quick, easy dinner
as I fill up a trolley
for the rest of the week
with meat, vegetables
dodging the mad middle aisle
that sells circular saws
and diving flippers
in the space of ten feet

and I swerve the trolley
to the left, down the shelves
dripping in American flags
when I notice squeezy cheese
in a bottle, and a little bit
of drool forms in the corner
of my mouth, dreaming
of that yellow marriage
of sausage covered in squidge
after a day I frankly wanted
to cunt off into the ether.

I cook my hotdogs,
cover them in foreign chedd,
eat my dinner.

Then I notice it:

V E G A N

and read the ingredients
only to discover that
my orgasmic mouthful
of cow gloop actually
contained

no
fucking
cheese
at
all

just
chemicals
and
dust

.
.
.

The fuck,
America—

what the actual
sweet suffering fuck

that’s the equivalent
of opening up a tin of chocs
at Christmas and finding
your Mum’s sewing kit

it’s a hollow, plastic
misinterpretation of cheese
laced in some frilly packaging
slapped with a starry flag
confirming the myth
of everything I need to know
about that side of the Atlantic

and I was so outraged
by this pitiful excuse for cheese
I marched back to Lidl
in the rain

purchased Austrian cheese
I’ll have to take a lactose pill for
that I don’t even care
two shits about
as long as I can wrap
my hotdog in a dairy blanket

and
end
this
fucking
day
.

winter & i

we'll
blow
  menthol            
chills
down eachothers
spine,
howl in violent rage
as we cut into
each-others faces,
 take on
       name digs
           in lashings
           of
             rain
        but,
             i'll
              always
      out live
  you.

Comfort In Sound

 
lately, I’ve been
having this thought
that I rattle when I walk

jangle limbed;
spine like church bells
in splintering rafters

teeth grinding
a bone instrument
in my mouth

so I take white pills;
drum my stomach
in a tumble of rhythm

while I find
peace in knowing
life moves in sound

but this back is percussion;
you should hear it cracking
an arthritic cymbal

over and over
this crash of pain;
music repeats.

Random

thoughts of dewy morn
on days when dreary reigns
watching the liquid drip
into punctured arm

missing you on your eleventh
dreading the twelfth
essence of you floated
down the valley
where coloured leaves
await the blanket of white

and the water drip in
pacifying the greedy pain
searing through tired body
clinging on to breath

thoughts of you
like a whirlpool
in my mind
staring at sterile ceiling

and spoken long ago
words of encouragement
don't cry honey
we have each other


whispers.
