Programme

1 December 2014

Recline upon bird down, tightening loopholes, feeling a touch of the artist
in the middle of the night—palaver &

slaver to mark the occasion of our first impudent glare, everything flared
tricked out like seasonal cues & slashes in fabric stuffed under coat
rushing through alarm with a genteel corner of your dripping image

Read: the double helix hologram on rear license plate stalks is the only real thing
in this freaking place

Reach across arm rest when the tympanum is being retuned & tenderly clutch the
ineffable junk of the significant—okay, now who does not have a partner
for this exercise—your musical bust should be turning and grinning

Run, run into frozen sea of grey square with flopping image in arms &
draw continual comparisons to that fishy petroglyph before you can
dredge up the food that is life and so on

Wait for one thousand and three eternities. Wait, I said not to interrupt

Read: the double helix hologram on rear license plate stalks is the only real thing
in this freaking place

Remove your things & find the bird down in the dark & indulge in the shock
gathering static at the first cold snap—slapping flesh & smacking that idiocy
forming in the puddle of a gormless face, then stiffening into muddle

Tread beyond regime & routine toward that frigid grey sea & perfectly striking
wait in the cold until you freeze into sensuous folds of marble—wait, wait, you
leave a smouldering hole of light in the clouds

Bite the fourth character in line & then behind that tricked out longhouse
offer compensation that is two hundred blankets inside a canoe then
tweak the hidden rebellion beneath your thawing folds of marble

Read: the double helix hologram on rear license plate stalks is the only real thing
in this freaking place

Break any heart that lacks the subsistence of root vegetables &
bury it at sea, or in the choppy grey square during a squall then
tell me this is not happening upon the squawking bird down
