PublicHolidayPeople (or: boozing alone on a popular Monday afternoon)

Beneath two stories
in beach vicinity
I form affinity
with ethereal muse
with six beers
two cigarettes
& one ego
I write songs
urging the waves onward

Amid growling motorbikes
and coughing cars
buses full of blokes
and sweet chicks on the sidewalk
I sit, almost alone,
with double-man & hollywood home

Two Germans
in new country
earlier we spoke of holocaust
freely,
with smiles on our faces
one small raincloud
dropped tears on those spaces

The company departed
I flew up and down stories
my bowels contorted
ivory teeth eager for speech
but I was left with nose dripping

Snorting
I looked at my dark sunglasses
honestly regretting not throwing them
into the blue
before I spoke to you

Sniffing
I gazed at glazed windows
playing with my thoughts
the sea surged
some one
some where
purged

I am slow like necessary inflation
slow like visionary freedom
slow like temporal eternity

Empty bottles are quick
I am not

Naked, music cannot cover me,
light, old light, covers my young body in illustrations of who I am

Traffic sounds ocean-like,
bladder pushing me into the garden,
people see this.
PublicHolidayPeople,
with time on their hands
to play with their wounds,
looking at me through almost-closed curtains.

I have arrived too early
feeling I shall leave late

Goddamn boozing alone in the afternoon

Above two stories
back on familiar flooring
I relish bladder freedom,
not so empty porcelain,
always a friend.
