Take a liberal dosage of Egyptian Book of the Dead fakery some megalomaniac's scrawlings and some depressive's daubings throw in some exotic erotica and misogyny and selfishness and cant and shroud yourself in chemical armour then you are ready for the final revelation the emperor's clothing the lie of paradigm shift the old fraud would've love the 60s and the sweltering febrile 70s...  Read More

So can we condemn on the basis of diet? Culture or supposed good taste? Sometimes we look to the East for wisdom and fall for medieval authoritarianism wrapped up in a Tibetan robe bullshit there is wisdom in all of us however oblique the brainwashing that pervades doesn't help to unlock those plain sight secrets in the synaptic circus of the mind  Read More

Sometimes hard to ignore annoyances pieces of a greater whole frustration are lost in the midst of further spirals of control issues self control being the main culprit Avoiding obfuscation can be equally hard to avoid as folk rattle on about style style with nothing behind it become a string of sentences that irritate the ears as the eyes are drawn to a middle distance Avoiding the...  Read More

100 words a minute all kinds of ordure 100 ideas a second all of them defunct in the time it takes to rally a single atom of thought The lie of friendship through the various portals of fakebook proportions peddling to a fictive margin where one can gather at a facsimile of the watering hole the lie of the level playing field manifest in an online universe sleepwalking into a...  Read More

Awoke to magpies evicting the eggs of blackbirds the constant white noise of tinnitus traffic the hush of memories that I no longer remember the finite detail of the final deadlines of the rush of the present inert in my pit awaiting a sign from self that today is actually going to happen as eyelids signal that the now is still the now and I continue to live in spite of all my...  Read More

Anomie created by hyper capitalism. Apocalyptic alphabets unleashed by paranoic taxi drivers. Just another day down on the dole queue. On-your- bike- sonny boy 3rd generation sun sets on empire Tories spouting headteacher platitudes as the cities aflame. Sow what you reap sandwich board end-is-nigh prognostications rally in a mind clouded with Big Pharma 3-a-day calmers. Another Pimms, dear boy?...  Read More

It was the omnipresent fear, the trinity of school, family and an all powerful Godhead. Corporal punishment, playground psychotics and their pecking order, incipient murderers and wife beaters spitting bile and phlegm onto innocent wee boys and girls as they tried to play imaginatively to escape the unremitting grey futures plotted out for them. Whipped at school, scourged at home as a result of...  Read More

The eyes often hold it. Pools of intent or distracted roundels of middle distance peering. The eyes that often greet me in the morning mirror are ones of a hurt child, leaking small tears or angry and pupil-swallowing iris orbs of wrath. Extremities.

A look in the eye doesn't mean much It is political Body politic A dig in the ribs means a lot Not to some It too is political Body politic Once I pooh poohed the notion That everything was political Until someone mentioned That bread did not fall from the sky They were right And I hated being wrong In those days Being wrong now is a way of life My wrongness is often right But,...  Read More
