Repetitions, contradictions, emissions
The progressive slime of pleasure,
Immoral omissions, a failed endeavour.
Misunderstood: Enigma undertook.
Scrap-metal, cut him up - raw portent.
Cut-up – cut-him down – consumptive
Drained cell. A needle neat, luxuriant,
The impaled butterfly. A cracked shell.
Blah! Blah! Blah! … Oh fucking hell … well-read
Immature - neurotic - little mama's boy...
Self pity reeks; self-absorbed my miscommunication,
Guilt restored. – No “That is not what I meant, at all”.
Mama's boy, eh? – Love & other observations.
I thought I would look back & laugh. I did.
Siblings severed ... How silly it all is, eh?
We play pool & talked for a bit, somewhat unrestrained.
'Touch' - 'Safe', a smile - your name? He rose & fell
On that dotted line … his document denied.
Distorted, unreal an 'Isolated incident'.
'Section 9' Insipid colours - calm you down - or be denied.
Mohammed: He was there for life, or so he said.
Black Jack, Solitaire & other card games
Followed. Mo: he kept me sane. Others too.
A Buddhist, a Muslim, a Sikh, a Christian too.
Turn that fuckin' TV down, I tutted,
A Nietzschean bearded geriatric muttered
something mad, as he strolled by.
Try playing 'Jenga', with a man with dementia, we laughed.
Tricky. Chess. Checkmate … he's sharper than you think.
The new year, rendering their certificate: Obsolete.
