Sunday 26th February

170226

NOT ESSEX:

Is the drumming in or outside my head?
Is this another country or the Flu?
The bed is damp,
Before it met me,
The towels are damp,
Before I use them,
Pretty as a postcard,
Candle lit Romance,

Faces around the edge of a market square,
The drumming is relentless,
Flailing,
Possessed,
The laughter of children,
Seagulls screech,
Two men howl,
Bay & moan,
Make the sound of schoolyard motorcycles,
Music as beautiful as a New York rush hour,
Up on the roof,
I fall into the healing hands of Cacophony,

Did you record it?
Of course!

Labyrinth of body odours,
Eyes follow,
Fish & hunt,
Backstreet,
Nook,
Alley,
Crack,
Kitten cute,
Toe dipping,
Peeping,
Tongue touching,
History,
Cul-cha,
It’s like on the telly,
But in 3D & smells.
