Articulated

Sporadically updated analysis.

Anonymity Calling

Obscurity and darkness;

sought after by the City’s chancers.

 

Walking on the lot;

taking comfort in liberty;

seizing only the narratable opportunity.

 

Presently happy, in the friendly

unfamiliar; the known unknowns;

bar tears unseen,

drunk fears libertine,

I am the resurrection:

Queen Dopamine.

 

 

 

The Universal Must

On the cusp

of rust and stardust

lies the motivational must;

the done, doing and the does.

1:10AM

Recipes for politics

found wanting in a state of bliss;

fool no one with your sentiments;

your idiotic sacraments —

your inefficiencies,

trinkets and baubles —

to the end, hording all your weaknesses.

Concerning interviews

The plural is important;

“interviews”,

as opposed to the singular:

interview.

 

How to confer upon someone,

in a limited space of time,

the notion that you

are more than rehearsed lines;

that you are trustworthy and taut,

but also capable of laughter

and creative thought.

 

For the man blessed with many interviews

is made a failure of such ‘success’:

attention divided,

his future undecided;

the path of most resistance, one might deem it,

or maybe the ‘better narrative’.

I’d much rather have a single successful interview

and have time to live.

 

 

Perils

Regularity and sporadity;

always trying to fall somewhere in between.

Reconciliation

Reconciliation;

a contrived conflict,

now resolved;

a happiness,

once forgone;

laughed off,

saved.

 

Better for the journey;

tears drying,

shouts softening;

the solution for the wound.

Highway Generica England (or, North of Watford)

MOT centres;

Tesco Extras;

min. wage paying jobs;

fried chicken shops;

roads, highways, potholes.

Price: £700,  Ford Focus ’03 reg.

 

Darkened car parks and

full beam youths shouting;

engines revving;

wheels spinning.

 

A beautiful shithole

around every corner.
