THREE CHEERS FOR EXISTENCE

‘I don't want to sit at the children’s table anymore’
   – Richard Brautigan


UNTITLED #4

Town in a black fog
another day goes down

Garbage epiphanies
universal theories


UNTITLED #7

Smelter
(sounds like some kind of infection)

Spatial envy
(a ruined ecology)

Silent figure
(distortion of the individual)

Silver building
(cultural incompetencies)

Soul catcher
(a form of violence)

Some folks
(put people together and watch)

Sorrow alert
(after the bright lights switch off)

Strolling boy
(like driving on the freeway)

Subplot surprise
(narrative permanently undermined)

Sheeps and wolfs
(escalate the feeling of unease)

Summation
(answers that lead to more questions)


UNTITLED #11

To hell with demons and liars


UNTITLED #17

Crash car kasbah
dereliction of duty

I am devoted to failure
and have no evidence
you are otherwise

A network of sparks
haloes the electrician
hard-wired murder

We should kill all voices
and enjoy the silence

Slow motion flutter
duffel coat disturbance
– stay warm and dry

Walk slow liason
prosthetic miasma

Loops and loops
with limited style

Velodrome frequency
far from here or there

Mirrorball my heart
stand mute soldier


UNTITLED #18

That was when I started liking it


UNTITLED #23

The lost song
turning tides

The first star
games of light

Shockwave flowers
midwinter rites

Another reflection
changes in the air


UNTITLED #26

Apparent chaos
excess analysis

We came to dream


UNTITLED #27

Bones of light
for the static king

Shining teeth and
nose before the ear

Coda lung squall
looking for me

X-ray addiction
transmission blues

Crumbling nocturne
cockpit fire alert

Overgrown frostbite
a sudden farewell


UNTITLED #29

Dissolve
