Wednesday 11th October

I DON’T FEEL CLEVER THOUGH THE VOICE IN MY HEAD SAYS I AM:

I’m sat here,
In the rain between the buttons,
After & before the wires,
No telephones ringing,
No deadlines,
No dramas,
Just the sound of the rain,

Now bells,
Travelling on winds,
Tress start hissing,
Interrupted conversations in Green,
A chill wind silences the bells,
A solitary chime insistent,

Fear!
Come!
Run!

 

(today I’m listening to Yasuaki shimu – ‘Music For Commercials’)

UNIQUE FORMS OF CONTINUITY AT REST:

He was quite shy,
A quite guy,
Cold rain the camera,
Waiting for the lights to change,
Therapy,
Stepping ginger down the stairs,
Slow-hand sorted,
Airbag turned off,
Back pocket full of messages,
Pushing wheels undercover,
Dreaming in Technicolor,
Black with a soft top

Monday 9th October

RAVE CULTURE:

Sleepless I don’t know you,
Moving in the dark with the lights on,
Cat jumps out of it’s chair,
Running round the kitchen scared,
Everything surprising,
Everything the same,

Messages on bedside tables tumble,
Piles of clothes snag feet,
Waiting in bathrooms,
Squinting into crude light,
Numb on the inside,
Rain on the outside,
Knees around the chin,

Sunday 8th October

NO NO NO:

I need to get away sharp,
I’ve got something on,
My sister’s coming over,

How about the 19th?
I can do the 19th,

I’m topping up,
I’m drinking the bottle,
Keep an eye,

What time do you think we should get together?
7:45?
How about 7:30?
It’s up to you,
It’s fine by me,

Well,
I’m gonna try,
I’ll tell ’em I’m busy,
Slip away,
Got to get away by 6:45,
I’ll sit in the bath,
Laughing dirty

 

 

(Mostly what I listen to is Bob Dylan if I’m honest)
(Him & anything on the Detroit Underground label)

Saturday 7th October

NOT THAT THERE WAS ANY OTHER WOMAN ON THE HORIZON:

She doesn’t tick any boxes,
You know what I mean,
It’s one-in-one-out,
She’s on a trip,
She’s basically anything big,

An arty one,
Hardly more healthy,
Cross-talking mouth,
Passionate riches,
Love diamond,
Crashing,
Free luggage,

I saw her yesterday,
She’s one hundred & eighty degrees,
God knows I believe you,
She’d got something on,
Oh,
Massive,

I’m hoping next Friday,
I’m hoping next Friday,
The second time is always better,
It’s a fine balance,
A formula,
The second time,

I’m just saying,
Not Wednesday,
I’m on duty today,
I’d like to be yoghurt,
I’d like to be desert,
Changing gears

Friday 6th October

THE ENTITIES:

Digital bird,
Cost the Earth,
Red sale balloon,

Do you want a drink?
Kiss me,
Coo-ing,

Do you want it normal?
Or do you want it regular?
Marketable,

Are you trying to stand out?
Are you trying to make the sun come out?
At the end of the day,

By-product,
Something should happen,
Write it down,

Change the paper,
End reality,
A touch so deep

Thursday 5th October

HOLDS IT LIKE A CLAW. WHAT?:

The cup,
Sits like a giraffe in Blue,
Waterproof for the season,
Rocking back-&-forth,
Never sits still,

A woman sings,
‘Ain’t no rest for the wicked’

Do you need help,
Not a plastic spoon thrown down?

Drive these puzzles out my head,

Got anything to say,
Sat there pressing buttons?

Big man in a washed-out Nasa t-shirt crossing the road,
Thanks for the noise upon waking,
You bring me up,
My first laugh,
Shining,
Nothing bad,

Beware machines with wheels,
Driven by bleary-eyed drifters,
First thing,
Morning,

I’m not ready to commit to anything,
Don’t call me yet,
You wont like the answer,
You can laugh at that if you want to,
I would,
If I was you
