Basing on Blake

Quench quench wanhopes ?

of holy light –


possessed of day

where spirits stray


cannot (in & of) itself

destroy or complete


near shades of extortion

where sorrows meet.


Pent fires arc & hark

crater & ploy


timeless rallies with terror,

seek staggering joy.


Blades wired liken frogmen

to an arsenal of feet


whose fins buck and batter

blood-honey like sweets.


A green river hazard,

flats over oceans of sky


old weapons reload

swoon the drizzle & ride.


Its charms cherish



balconied mudholes

open wide –


Sudden – game ball

bounces out,


treason goes granular ?

turns a wild bulls eye.


Beauty senses trouble

lies delinquent, in wait


for deceits defiant bubbles

to riotously dissipate.


As sorrow aches to trust

and anguish turns to lust.


del sagrado corozon

Pulley is rhyme

that grabs like slough

carries me off


toes sunk in at edge

where sand makes mud


and up it comes

the plank piratical

up to nose and noose


lusts for breaking things

battered and loose.


The hidebound,

holy wounded


ancient hinge —

dead ends

in stacks and stacks


del sagrado corozon 

horror and stern

like an iron mask.


Morning light

releases a refugee


blows like a fire eater

into the overbright,


scavengers pulling

at meat


go holy hostage

trick or treat


nectars provocateur

run away with the lamp


as treachering empaths

stawk the undone


and madness –

a money dread

graces killing the sun.


Still fealty grows

further & further in and out


redoubles the dance

nail beast and bower –


near misses and kisses

like chess-with-death, flower!


Bandy and bounty

bad birds bright into bed


semicircles surmount –

ring out the undead.


Rape of the Crock

First rhyme ever sent

caused pain


soulful literary gallant

hung up on me

never spoke to me again.


In poetry hung

a deadly fore-edge


could not cease reprehend

bloody ravening



sword swallowing my pen.


Its brazening out

after hungers

raw tragic meat –


Beset with lash

turbulent flashes


bonking sacred



hog wild

gallows heat.


A haunted herd

of dense

neurotic nimbo


terror beauty

nails, veils  –



Spirits arose

and balked

at the throws


fey & shadowy,

din sinister


sly, shy abandon

bucket bottomless pits  –


A swoon sepulchral


of illaqueate infinites.


Love kneeling beside

wan lugubrious insurrections

turning with contempt


sinking into cunning

swirls of sorrow


contrary doleful –



Hermes – divine


of underworld souls


reverser of hooves –

subsequently upturned

the whole bowl


staging hunger

and grief

to wisdom of a thief.


Flowers malfeasant

balled up and inhaled

at safecrack in crime


guardian of ghosts


sweet predatory madness!


ariolation rapacious

caduce obduracy of rhyme.


Hasta La Vista

Meet me

in a bar afar.


Rustle me out

of this ocean wreck,


urchin for tools

Bering Strait.


Meet me

on the Bridge of Sighs


bell and the fog

harrow and cark.


Kiss a grace

of this hour and waste.


Pull me out

of this can of fire.


Toils inflame

every bleeding thirst


to pander and shame

vain and sullen with desire.


Coney and hole

sunk in like a mole


bad to sad,

driving me mad!


Love’s divinely




of sorrow!


Sweetie, not abandon

this zeal,

to detachment and doubt.


Faith, will always

need heed

your sipid recounts.


For torments bound

to an Insect Wheel,

a Coffin Fly that lays


boute-selle with visions

meat and chuck,

as terrors tightening

mount & f&ck –

bull markets

peak leak heap corrupt!


Profound & deadly

with dismay.


Not stop butterflying

the hungry wind,

whose terrors denude

this feral sin.


Love fret and staunch,

countless taunts

what so costly

raises the skin!


Not leave again

this joint under-served

as the dawn still cocks

where reapers converge

dares serpent-volant

to waltz back in –

as signs from the heavens 

unleash a hardbitten grin –


Forlorn, and hapless?

this willful insatiety

circles like flies,

impotent, restless –

No – arise! now arise!


Buggy? mazed maudlin

shaken & stirred –


Not kick over the vortex!?

not swallow that bird –


Find credence

reading bloodstones

for contradictions immutable.


Crash and condom insolute,

fingers at my neck

teetering & inscrutable.


Magic & fire locking horns,

paint this body

the tireless color of salmon


diving pink into the Red. 

Spawning eggs

on banks of gravel,


scandalously high!

as a mountain of death –

Love is weather,


love is the sea

tide in, tide out

chasing currents


for odds, insurgent?

Restive as the sky. 

Riven to a cross –


it leaps, it stalks!

Born at sea,

both horn & fly.


Coils & zigs

along a whispering edge,

a flat out rush –


between the loathsome

& the sly

All the Way

To go the way
of the dodo bird ?
graceless under fire


too long lost
to melting points
plundered with desire


lost in causes
lost to raptures
too champion to resist


hesitations magnified!
poisoned, with
a mad persistance!


Fears empower hate,
hate rants its way to sleep
asleep in the ocean sublime


sorrows raged against
the ocean
roaring with fate!


a crucible for love –
annointed by his savage blood
playing intimate


with the divine.

Beauty that burns

Beauty that burns

turns unruly


raft like wings

tethered to the wild


drizzling sizzles

in schisms


of passion, naysay!

& fury –


hell before heaven!

its raining fire –


Wild reckless misery ?

a standoff, rebuke


lonesome, a fighter

softheaded, a blighter ?


Holy Terrors –

exilic bloodlust!


sacred captive,

divine recruit.


Free from pander

free from shame –


the divine

implacability of sorrow.


Chunks of tree

melt palms


over loot

and slain –


skull & crossbones

forfend the jumpsuit!

epi de fleur

Mischiefs relay
le feu sacré


catching blazes
the looking glass bits.


My tongue my tongue
opposes its thumb


fissilingualist –

Eye of the Wind not

Horror lapping
shimmies with panic
surging angst


finds that beastly
balk of ruins

laid to waters
a bubbling waste –


Sorrows bleed

red and white
muddling monstrous –
hunt the night


for a crack

in eye of the wind.

suspiral vent

At bottom sits

jokers wild


wild with blastments

bloodbird & riddled


curmurrings pose villianry

sweet and dangling



my storming breathlessness


as drums smoke pores

violently open


glomming torched

spun & rattling


into your arms

seditiously soaking


the bloodguilty throat

of a whir & drone iron lung


whose leaf lard

bleeds & breeds


glint, boxed-in

savagely caroms


with the fury of love

and the frenzy of death.

combust with dust

And all this life

turns up like lead


salt and sink

against my head


a trigger pounding

combust combust


like an angel caught in a rage

of emptiness and lust


firebird in contempt
of time –


flambeau fugitive
(in thrall to rhyme).

Whats under your hood

Sot with love
and cosmic death


horrors magic tragic
fruit of poisonous tree –


itches fishes and twirls
for pluralismo worlds


to the ashery.

Royal Farter


Heart-crazy ignoble
for roots of resistance


love for battle conditions
horror pollutes


fine lines on your ruler

who fakes you crueler


greatest pretenders
make you truer


shed shed the unhealthy

unhappy in your ranks


little gov little gove

is sick of your sickness


sucking off the system
a leach unto death.

Nill Ye Will Ye

When hole

in chest turns green,


that breathless expansive


feeling –


burns with woos

panic ensues.


Impassionate leanings

so weighted percussive –

heart striking & protrusive


held captive by methods

solicitous restive

lugubrious eruptive



& intrusive.


Swinging swinging

high on hive

as the sticky wind, mills

saints alive –


Sharp edge

of fissure, lip & flue 

some way some day!


through devious freedoms

his darling brood-i-ful

skip to the loo –


Oppose the rocking, horse ?

the bent the rent

the wild & the cooked, 


panics’ sweet & deviant

hungers! teeming leaping

luminous bloodsuckers


wiggers chiggers 

traffickers, crooks ?


Beauty’s rogue economy

truth-or-dare –


with beautiful beasties

whose every other word,

I swear!

My country is a slave to death

Every new death carries

another exoskeleton on our backs

as flies the buzzards

adorned with screeds

circling circling

where love lies bleeding.


Guns blanketing fire

with a buyers mad greed

run run for your life

die for your country

sweet chicken feed!


Brochures of bullets

raving for grace

merry, a poster

of this obscene race

ban the 2nd –

with John Browns face!


My country my country

is a slave to blood

sweet reigns of caskets

draped in horrors of love

wrapped in respect 

wrapped in pride for the dead

guns saved us from tyranny

with this freedom we bled.


Proof of your ardor

horde tight to your guns!

romancing the hunger games

what have we won?

tears of honor

tears we all share!

weep for tomorrow

no nothing f$cking compares.

The Royal Hospital

& birthday after take a stroll.

museum uncratered

once famous Goal.

& spit at murderers beneath our feet.

& wiz at pirates who make us meat.

& Kiss the Blarney,

right stone cold.

Where fell on knife

and ate swans gold.

Swelled beneath euphony,

wisteria like.

A garble of marble.

The mystery of mould.

Leda’s sworn turn turtle.

Sweet wanhope & woe. 

Yellow Dogs Useless Lament

Screamers awoke last night

in class

yelling at me almost

to a point of tears


and then I admitted it

and then I said 

upset I am, upset I am

for my criminal selves


crying over always 

the wrong way

for not showing up

for not being real. 


paroles la mer

The rack the fuse

the must the muse

the developers stack –

a warren of beautys



complicity requires!

Mouth of cave

where looters raid


slope of philosophers

partook, a bath!

There, just there

hangs ancient flood


following the dots

nostalgic for mud.

The lure of lengths

pureduresûre as stripe.



non-refundable, non-refutable. 

Down, down, down –

& to the right.


Holy socks!

heal and toe.

Wildly compressed,

a hand of air!


Bore-holes at bottoms

sweet and low.

Confesses beauty,

his animals share.


Where wheels

divine wheels

paroles la mer.

Pernicious Contrary

Stuck inside fatelessness

pain killers, a lid


contrary pernicious –

insidiously delicious.


Ransacking irreconcilability

(truant with death) 


punching at oblivion

for a sick f&ck of – meth ?


Loosen your change

all seething and wreath


spiking the bitters –

cold, trenchant & sweet.
