Spray Me
Taken in San Francisco Bay

Spray Me .

It’s ok..
my love is good
.

Spay me with malice and I shall
transform into metal drawers.

pull one out
you see
inside
plastic forks and knives
hardly weapons to kill you with
or thrill you with,
anymore.

you’re a fool to be hurt
look inside for the feast
your bellies full of chopped liver and onions
brown bread’s lover
to say the least.

This has been a private party
something I’ve discovered a bit too late
I was not invited (you see)
standing at the window at half past eight

like Oliver Twist
drooling for the meat and potatoes
but only have my fist
inside my pockets deeply kissed

begging for ‘more’
pulling out crumbs
by this back door

You been calling me on a line
that’s dead
you been saying the same thing
backwards round my head

devil recordings

Beatles songs.
Backwards saying all manner of venomous
wrongs

like..

why did you go?
why did you hurt me
why did you love me
why is the sky blue..
why do I hurt and why don’t you too?

And I perk up with a memory not faded
nor retracted
remember all the tears I cried
and infact did

Daily for awhile
grinding down the house
turning off the fantasy
Today
Scheherazade died in me.

sinking like Titantic
no longer finding me anymore,
I went looking outside my virtual door

your voice now absent, (hypnotic I know)
like meat and potatoes there I was
now here I go..
waiting at a bus stop with Universal Flow

bought two tickets for me and ME..
leaving town at midnight blind with tears
can’t see..

But Wait…

NOW

I am writing you

from a boat I am floating in.

Singin a Song
I am growing in.

“Hold On”
“Hold On between the lights between
the clouds”

then

“killing me softly”
(you almost did you know).

NOW…

I’m just fishin
Making one golden turn after another,
catchin sliver stripped bass
feeling further

and I am gonna eat it
and I am gonna lick my lips
and write you a poem
bout the subject of

‘This’
