Eatmorewords's Blog

the promenade stretches along his field of vision

empty

like a school text book on the first day of term

the sky is grey the floor is grey with old chewing gum glued to the surface and the angry sea is grey and the fisherman sway like their listening to a ballad at a concert
the world looks like an elephant
& the weather means everyone has retreated indoors

&. the local council want to legislate the towns magicians

to follow a single code of practise
(precise measurements of top hats

from which they will be allowed to pull identical rabbits from)
& when the thaw comes we will walk in the wet world

down streets with human names
& and the kid on the bus

takes aim and shoots me with his imaginary finger gun

I STAND ASHAMED FOR YOU

PLEASE WRITE NO MORE POETRY ABOUT SELF-MURDER

THE IMAGES OF SOUVENIRS YOU’VE STOLEN

I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT A FIRST PERSON PLURAL IS

POSSIBLY JUST WHACKED-OUT GIRLS AT TRUCK-STOPS

YOUR REHEARSALS OF THE ACT, YOUR ONLY AVAILABLE EXALTATION ?

A SUCCESSION OF EROTIC WOUNDS, LURID AND PROPORTIONAL

I ARGUE YOU NOT TO NARROW, I STAND ASHAMED FOR YOU

IT IS NOT EASY TO GET TO EMILY DICKINSON

THE GRAVEDIGGERS AT WORDPRESS HAVE BEEN WORKING OVERTIME

PUTTING ME IN A SHOEBOX UNDER THE BED BUT I MUST EXTERIORIZE

STEP OFF THE SLOW-MOVING TRAIN THAT MORALISTIC ACCENT

I DO NOT WANT TO BE THE SUBJECT OF FOLK-SONGS OR DARK SMOKE

I HAVE SEEN YOUR LITTLE FLOPHOUSE OF EMILY DICKINSON JUNKIES

IT IS SHAMEFUL HOW OTHERS RESPECT HER SO AUTHORITATIVE SO WRONG

IT IS NOT EASY TO GET TO EMILY DICKINSON YOU MUST HAVE A GUIDE

I SPENT LAST NIGHT WITH HER… SHE LIKED MY $200 BROOKSTONE PILLOW

SHE: JUNE 25
