scratch, scratch

“stopping to think about the millimetre, the illi in particular, as a way to take my mind off the itch, the bird’s-eye-view itch, that dots no “i”s especially in partIcular, this is mere sidetrack to an unapproachable commentary”

“and what of the scene?”

“the scene is where we fool ourselves taming clouds, running the gauntlet of iridescence”

“docility, a hard act to follow, endorsing the shown method: press play to display"

“still your commentary handled a performance of doubtful antics like a blend of strange and fantastic manners, which in the explaining, lost all sense of impersonation and, as if on a tour of duty, you recruited my side of the story”

“come closer”

“tell it we
we then
we shall, in a one-off tirade incurable in co-operation

- purging consequence of all penalty

“Moving around between confession and humour, suggestion and reconstruction, tame and wild”

“you once said “inscription masks the face that should be ours” – were these the patterns you had spoken of? integrated with made-up intent

“rolling so far, yet a great intimacy told, hinges on barter”

“disorder gradually stores unanswered necessities – under an unmade bed was a painting of an unmade bed”

“smile, name, ask,”

“hinges resist with such virtuosity the painful patterns – you sketched on a scrap of paper some natural condition, it looked like we could invent initiative or at least a mock-up, practically all the rest of the world was based on mirrors, that is what you said, there was a faddishness to the way you faced first things, almost as if the word first was itself pure whimsy”

“from the sure side of disorder, based solely on a painting that is, it had never actually been witnessed, the sure side gradually laid claim to untaming”

“point of calling, water of time, crawl out from”

“you said exceptional things can happen, and that whatever fell was on the whole more chaotic than those handmade sincerities… little by li”

this mosaic

“maybe you remember the sacrifice one-sunset threw
like the last party, half-broken from lack of use, lethargically sealing daybreak into afternoon, and do you remember how you tried to be proud

it was the way your hand wrapped around anything left falling which I vaguely recognised

sinking, you would read books overflowing with questions and play content

in a roundabout way sense made since reach within

passing underneath all thinking

coming to, while the others went on; everything had been clothed in trivia, whole chunks of phenomena were brought to bear

and little by little, since you may not remember, this mosaic, disassembled over time”

“moving around between humour and confession, but also making a gradual entry into a silent culture, maybe.. why not… those days so used to trying, so used to imitating, can this be all there is to it? what had taken place in the grooved mania was anything but, then at other times any pillow any familiar vacancy shaken to emptiness

then a paradox: talk is blind”

“leaving the street, stopping, looking at sky, sitting, smoking, stroking hair, inventing sighs, ah this upright life”

“such moments take practice”

the ground itself is less proven than we think, at a time when we walk two steps further than is necessary to reach the high plateau, to be confronted with a table for consolation, around which, from the beginning, there were four of us

ovelty prevails towards procedure,”:

bloom triumphed on the road, so grateful that ‘towards’ was not merely a word and 'step this way' could be reversed, leaving for'n'backwards to call a truce in direction.

A break in

With such a high-flown knack for pressing questions between pages, gestures in private-journal-speak, as distinguished from prima-donna-ditty, claim a great deal is happening here, but to top that, I must misquote myself when I say “it is not this that varies my aptitude for tatters” but a nestling diagonal stance, winking at compactness from a miscellaneous setting, grappling whodunit proposals like a hinterland tenant with sore happy valley eyes frosted to pimples from parting company at a break in anaemic clouds.

“Vagary expects regular attendance”:

this extravagant action anticipates habitual turnout:

again and again
routine turns in

another of life’s time sheets,
and yet no habit is as forming or formative as anticipation that topples action from its shelf life and spends thrift, frittering away caution.

Way this step

Vagary expects regular attendance, novelty prevails towards procedure, I hand-in the off-hand wishy-wash improvisation: a sort of a: bubblingly impromptu, sloppy with blended aspirations peculiar to open, gates stand their self-oration, fields imagine growing buts. [productive nor productive neither, is often too strifely to come across meeting] circle in a living suited to best mannerisms, picture a completing of suspiciousness, my cantankerous amateur me.

Teeming with occasional tantamount-s [there is, sporadically, a little that is equal to the teem within] it is this that varies my aptitude for tatters [by tatters I really do mean the bits and pieces that write themselves into quick comebacks] before the rush of vain smothers in, and I substitute each step with a sprinkling of dedication [which is not up to it, but makes up for], left in close proximity to earlier astonishments [contagious perhaps] and take up intrepid idleness, inventing evidence with which to probe bemusement [morsel collection] – consider the scale of it – with my finger on resist, confident all can be abandoned in place of missing details, a final version of antidote single-handedly absorbs itself.

The allusive 'I am'

In the blur of indirectness I am at once within dexterous reach and without conclusion;

– that is to say: being under the influence of meander, I have some handy doubts;

– that is to say: I am allusive when it comes to haze, but if you touch me I won’t end

Wednesday, August 08, 2007


Is it that “I am” was aroused and depended on you to suspend it, or suspend everything else that could only sigh at blind imitation, sighted half in, half out of untroubled lamp light. Sure, there is a saying that doubling the I doesn’t square off any corners, but even so, a rotund imagination helps, if just to roll away with itself.

into an unuttered hurl against false breakers

like his questions, continued in silence, but he had said:

“I will go on…”

in the beginning, however brutishly
and yet she never raised his voice
above verse, locking the river
inside his running, where stagnant
questions bank up. He knew ‘how’ in the sonic sense
just as the room was a barrier to him being in it,
because its length continued, as when he
had unendingly danced or paced, how the room’s
emptiness recurred as she ceaselessly
stared at a slanting instant full of dew-point consonants

‘It was a kind of struggle that she was pursuing with him, a silent dispute through which she asked him for and gave him justification.’ p5

“she is there at intervals taut between false and true
where the point is pointed: do I hear what is said?
or recur to him now as at first, when the page,
ceaselessly blank, forms words out of probability
“operating a donation”
neither later nor early
to him, I say…

after after after

‘He understood quite well that she had possibly forgotten everything.’ p4

After all, some approaches hide
their potency out in the open.
Shutting the un-sayable in with
the thinkable is scarcely
walking the ridge of someone.

They Said


a no-rapport understanding
the depth of no-rapport
of a deeper rapport than
surfaces by itself to a
a rapport by itself which
deeper rapport which only
is only the surface to
understands no at surface
the no-rapport depth of

Caught Up

for Celia

When long lost
fords a short cut
to hello
understanding sprawls across time
twiddling its thumbs
while fingers burn.

Awaiting Less

“; he had questioned her in a more urgent manner by his silence,” p.2

overlapping questions
silence sounded
answered -
it was a solution
awaiting literal problems

The Last Resort

Out cold with evidence of sketchy signs
unnaturally seeing the sights
as ally in the shallow drive to hush-hush
before firing plans to shake the cartoon off the page.

Collected Thoughts

Instead of writing I pierced some words and mounted them on pins, like butterflies, to admire the species.

Due to bad visibility under the floorboards today, it’s doubtful that any pins dropped.

Long-standing is prone to shifting feet behind someone’s scenes. Seeing sides for the taking, a part fits the place if not the person. Casually balancing this act between who and why.

Improbable kindness
even in dream, where we still trust,
turns predisposition turtle.

Air; that much needed soaring substance
borrows the h from height
just for fun, you could say
or to boldly split infinite hairs.

The backlash of glee buckled me into a moment
unforeseen yet anticipated
as a matter-of-course, of course.

Stiffening the lip of return
against equilibrium,
brings home being home, again.

Intermittent Intermission

Two weeks
coupled with pause
= back soon.

Startled objects
take liberties

by beguiling matter
into being presently tense,

teasing embodiment
to another level.

Having clambered out-of-into, relief lived.
Until a peep, in quarrel with apathy,
won the look.

Combined with distance you’ll find
curiosity lends molehill a telescope.
