tiredness shreds the living out me sometimes
and so no capitals for the days of the week

i am a little i
breathing through a congested murder of crows

inky blur
drinking galvanized glug
pure sullied contradiction in a tight chested night

the desire to outrun is skittle barked
legs lollied like a lousy out of tune sousaphone

i am a dot without the i
stretched on a splicer with snipped celluloid roses

sore china pink rim eyes
razor resting on restless winks
one blink too lonely to respond with some sweet moistened tears

twitches snigger inside my head, poor weary head, better off in bed head
blank, double dollop blank
forget how to sleep, crazy head rattling away in tin haze

i am intuitive yet incessantly driven to drive the i wire
innate systematic individual

there’s a break in the heavy
a forty day slumber in a five hour embrace of serene nothings

a smile has taken to spy my face to bless the release of i
i will have a fresh day this day with a capital D
here is I with rest upon my heart

Artist's Description

Sometimes there is bleak tiredness that can come from too much happening all at once. Even when the happening is actually rather wonderful there is a weariness that can follow when we have been too too busy and rest is forgotten this for me is the ’ The Heavy Collections of Too Much’
