Sure thing Smokey
A sure thing’s a fine thing Dusty, and you can salt your fries with that.
Sure as Tacos Tuesday.
Totally. It’s a tease. My time was running out. I totalled it, trashed it and traded it in.
Timeshares are risky business partner
Don’t I know it, it twists
You can’t trust it
It tricks
It turns on you
It’s terrible. I’m torn. My pieces everywhere.
You’re shorn
My fleece is everywhere,
You’re furless
I’m forlorn.

Waffles with extra syrup while the pneumatic waitress in pink and white gingham
lingers a little longer at your booth than strictly necessary, gives you a stage wink,
scribbles something on a page from her pad, rips it out and slips it
under your plate. Turns on her heel, sashays to heavenly juke box,
the coin falls and it's your favourite song again.

You eat the same sandwich
It is the Universal Sandwich the crenellated lettuce the bright red tomato slice
We nibble at the edges, transfixed.

Clairvoyant sky and before it the vertical desert. A man has his faux-leather
jacket spread out on the red sand and displayed upon it, a selection of 'luxury watches'
very good price. No foot can tread this land no air to breathe no hold to hang onto.
The black is bright there is nothing beneath the surface.

This high and windy rock/receives no visitors/
The mind moves in circles/checkmated/ by its own isolation.
Spiralling in barren solipsism.
A reflex faith/an atavism/forbids death.
This ascent was made in hope/and under instruction
Someday/the friend will come.

it begins/with a word.
Expedience, say.
and from there/a Universe unfolds/
its permutations. Scrunches land into mountains/and studs
the sky with stars/seeds
of gods/in minds of men/
and Death/in each conception.

Gem-like/the faceted air.
gulls gliding the shifting planes.
Sun-gleam/glint on white feather.
The fierce bright. The Absolute
in the white light. Nimbus
of purified desire.

I see Wonders. I see Fascinations.
In the sky of spinning stars. In the sky of silver mackerel.
In the illuminated night.
I see Miracles. I see Prodigies
in the Pork Park. In the vale of pink flesh.
In the soft, fleshy hills

IN THE HURRYING VORTEX-
HUNGER OF A BLACK HOLE,
PLAGUE VECTORS MULTIPLY.​
strongholds of resistance isolated then overwhelmed.
undercover agents send encrypted messages through secret channels
clear new pathways to the sea. hack through seething jungle.
birds with distinctive plumage unravel in the sky, ribbons of feathers tangle in branches.
parrot vines flare like flowers.
acorn of light, laughter of toucans. sound of steam train in distant 19th century.
leering imps behind the wall. nightmare of giant pulsating crystal, its throne room an underground cavern. a hideous crystalline intelligence. walls and ceiling flare with crystal light. secret control centre of a charlatan god. flowers gather in a spot by the river. escalating frenzy.
pungent vines flare like flowers
freight the air with perfume
intoxicate bees

We toss the hideous beggar his coppers and hope for some lavish karmic recompense. Eyes hook onto rollerskating chick
Walkman thrust into cut off denim shorts,
pink socks
and a venti
caramel frappuccinno in
one hand,
God damn I love this city.

moles peer from under blankets of soil. blinking in the sunlight. rats promenade down rat runs, make ostentatious exhibitions of exquisite manners, ladies greeted with rituals of antiquated complexity, for other males
'Good Day Sir'
a curt nod with the teeth bared.
'Lovely Evening"
words enunciated with formal precision.
"Isn't it just. Well, lovely to see you"
"Oh yes, its always a pleasure"
tail swishes irritably
