untitled fragment

this is very much from a work-in-progress longer poem, the first chunks of which Francis Kruk & yt communication are compiling with work from Harry Godwin, Michael Zand & Linus Slug.

* * * * *

Reach tendant kaleidoscope. Inert
pivot downtime for striplit escalation,
these greetings occur & adopt
global – timekept for social structure.
You, sweeping discomfort with
glances / expressive / (continuum
breaks to tone intensity)
clasp visual,
modernist lapse of shared passage
dances to tranquil spaces,
to gatherings, concluded
with customs of vague delight by disband.

Active insight, like chromographic runnings –
diethyl, handmade plates –
a soulsoaked synapse on behalf
of cyclic momenta, receptic heartstrung cadence
reason incident override by platform delving,
near seated sight dousing
& placid visual as I drop. A week
to crack on canvas – splint
nurse your tumble-dried sonata
if official declarations allowed
organelles, shatterproof, we’d walk, unabated
surveying intent through lone faculties

Barricades (#4)

Back in April, I was writing a sequence of poems called Barricades. I think I only wrote five, three of which aren't very good. I don't really know what will become of the sequence - the idea behind it is something I was throwing around heavily at the start of the year, though it has had some rest since. Below is #4 from the sequence...

* * * * *
INCESSANT CULL SING.
Sing until throat
dry-hanging silence
stupidstupid misguise.
Tarnish day not of Charles
wrote through Sundays
archosauromorpha fatalities, automotive pilots
& homosapien like you.

Digestive deterrence blamed (culture) this
operator suggests curtailing, you clear
up without returning, you space
your shared personal publicity,
not or not fastened
optional. Faculties presenting –
the laughing sanity ableist
& laughing? Like carefree
having re-pieced my vase? Acronym.
Look nothing lakes
timekeeping, fucked at sunset
a boy cruises components
hands together
pesticide expiry
return ticket offered.

Tauheed

My debut chapbook, "Notes on Tauheed", is due from Harry Godwin's Arthur Shilling Press in the very near future.
It's a sequence of poems roughly on psychogeography, lightness & Grizzly Bear's second LP. It's entirely not on oneness with a higher power.

Calendar Mishap Semaphore

The guilt carriage situ.
Tapping ok without experience,
a plan, but... need.
I can show you but...
a BSc in ancient history
& effort
& age at which disappointments
duration is short-lived by lunch,
by fourteen a contingency
debating out development,
the movement school tour still
suggest another sort-of volunteer
outside "campus" lock community,
Queen's Park doesn't make it today
two faces without knowledge’s grey growth.

An icebreaker, stand, no, um, ums, or
end in debate. Emergence. Telephone
off oh. Pan vicinity barrister all on paper
eleven until forty-five at twelve,
any hand spanning utility until we move roads.

Yesterday afternoon diminishing precedence
a setting a half a face of a student
a harrowing modern metropolitan hunt
on the 29, not
the boy who would be,
crises culture developing the knife,
apparently un-cancelled if she knows
if she calls back
Clau-myself & cracking persuasive sale.

He was in distance,
he was already toured
wait on first intro-game applause,
a smoking action sketched, a musical
numbered quitting session peripherals,
bare-footed residence confusion Evan -
the conversing lack of idea, at Britannia Junction
d. d. nomination hopefully timescales,
I would be I know what immediacy workshop
dual point nine seconds, now
mind occupied from overhearing the commensurate
of something to sign off ok.

A feeling a carpet sex
softness stills utterly sublime,
blowing out of dog water
battleship view restricted applause.
