tin book

Keep
phone, phone
technology women
grass altitudes, dead shoes
rust slaps next, fear fence
back there, rail hill until
stacking tessellated water tyres
white plastic periods either side
notice, wolverine cigarette smoke tipping into a shared passage
not tracked in ever-last
black bin buckled illness promises
in a Lifetime

In

Coarse Med sick in circles
coasted beam light coat
gloom-tipped calms
near-term invisible Marxist anti-Americans
TV nature
rough on good land
Capital shops
slides intimate, uncut, unsliced, ammunition, apparatchik
counting counter stop stung schemes
archaeologists
palaeontologists
inhabitations
English love

Letter One

Invisible 1909
help his help
zinc conversations, late
Richard on the grass
no secret, illiberal for Jesus, magnates magnetise
hall packer, big Gospel, good news granite, higher heat, lower that heat
1901, all for Richard
British wet places in Scotland
jewellery brother ships away
walking medic, selfish soldiers into death, for The Messiah
Malta
we all forget 1870
Pastor-Preacher-Lover, sly spy
for everyone, Baronets, God, Metal..
Worker in Scottish wet places, Summer Aspatria, Summer with eagles
facing wet places in Scotland, the face
carta for Life
thrashing three wooden huts
not far apart
eggs and milk to Woman
endings in Sons

G Man K Man

Sliding iced food
a woman, long summer trousers, flaring ankles, red hair, questions
and how I saw it, his hair was with her, DNA, grey fine flesh
re-linked walls
font seated, duffled, booked
his brother was my socialist disco taker
echo knew north
cousin drummer gave up life for a fifteen floor tower block and a charity shop habit
fend off the law
doctors prescribed
cousin still had the walk from straight up his backbone
shaved his hair until tinfoil grey died
chemist said “not seen him for a long time”
back in Rigamortis
factory food
minded fat girlfriend impregnated, daughter, where now fat girlfriend daughter, he’s here in 37 years later leaning into eating stock
missing for minutes
backward facing pointing out, hands on knowing shapes, dialect escaped his lower jaw jut, hosing ears
taller
brother-friend
Nazi boy singing “fucken communist”
right eye re-engineered
brother-friend
short blue trench coat flapping
energy
eighteenth century Presbyterian sin house, graveyard, Chancellor’s outpost
I worked, he worked, army jumper worked
remembered
refusal
recall myself with iron points

Six



embedded grey arms yesterday leads
dog glory bruiser inside meteorological beast
black and white snow
was he attempted ash
after-gully water waste
white white thirty feet
auricular temper
vandalising throat
all cage
lair girl – Deuteronomy – liar girl

Visit house

Before
drink the blue markings
parked black doors
Gaelic John
18 hundred zero
an other one of the days
had dissection tales
food froze
cornered Bauhaus
in ignorance
in a broken garden
about thirty feet away identity
Gabriel, Gabriel
the worker sent her messages
accumulation
two over one
kept throwing it out
nothing we could see
Gabriel She

Reign, Leave Leave

Middle lingerer blonde
rip-off red sweat
nails from slant girls
Love rings collision
info crops Us
interrupt my ‘My’ lines
incineration planner
reseed dead ends

Tower Block Blokes

Trajectorially, Blackpool flattened sand sacrifices, the bitter end of American country miles, Pony Express livestock lying in dead dust.

Amateur zoology caught his attention span, mimicking zoo-keepers, flying voices on spit vertebrae, money get gad-handed mimics.

Boxed gift of living locusts, hands of a hostile career-break comic became a happening – ‘Moses! Where’s Moses?!’ – Men looked over, away from his pen-friend, the faux.

Gift of feed for solitary confined devil’s messengers, temperature controlled love and hate, if you look, and a bed needs making, if you look, and a constrictor’s escape route right there, ‘see it?!’

Eventual lost locusts, lost biographies on low heat, melting away on acidic paper.

Landlord

Faultless light of grace
three smart zero’s starvation
remote breath metal
condensation beside imaginable bacterial paw
