Belly Button

nosferatu


i want to pluck out my belly button

from its ------

stretch it

i want to pluck out my belly button


not dancing unless 

i twist

my belly button

in circles


a rope, a bloody rope

not umbilical

a dancing

bloody ship rope


almost a nail, every twist

hardens

tight metal

tall


screwed to messy sheets

watching

the show

my show


or


just a scab


or just a scab

that peels

and leaves

no imprint


i want to pluck out my belly button

i’m in the mood

for falling
inlove

with anyone



this year

everything
will be different.


i’ll catch
bullets
with my eyelids

before the
sun melts

alloverthegrass


i won’t shatter


dreams.

and i will try
with my head
on a stick,
a cocktail stick,
to make sense


of
my-

i will dream again.
i will dream again.


become a hedge
and grow


if i can

grow stolid
stuck in someone’s gnome ridden lawn
foreverand



i will
try not
to fallinlove

with anyone.

so patiently
wait brittle
for our ash

then we
can be
together.

for another christmas.

Man on Train

russes


THERE’S A MAN ON THE TRAIN.

HE HAS A MOLE ON HIS EYE.

IT LOOKS LIKE A TEARDROP.

his foot accidentally touched mine,

twice, and he peered around to

either adore or ignore me. I never

understand. I never understand.

smoking cyanide


birthing bleach


cumming bleach


smothering bleach

so john throws the apple core to the floor. so i skip. so i stumble. so i bleach, bleach, i bleach.



i am a real boy

THE DECADE in albums

Just for fun I thought I would stop grumbling about how awful the critics' choices for the DEFINITIVE ALBUMS of the 00s and make my own TOP 40 ALBUMS OF THE DECADE LIST.

WAR MANIFESTO 1: Cold War Bunker

BOO


I WANT TO LIVE

IN A COLD WAR

BUNKER. I WANT

TO LIVE IN A COLD

WAR BUNKER. I

WANT TO LIVE IN

A COLD WAR

BUNKER.


and i will storm
onto that stage

and i will stage
that storm

and i will stride
through storms

and my storms
will stage

another cold
war.

But
one
man
will
change
nothing.

I
keep
telling
the
estate
agent

that
one
man
will
change
nothing.


I cannot believe that she was my dressing gown

boo saville



Madeline McCann was lying
as a pile of crumpled flannel
under the haze of the drizzle
of the morning’s curtain smog.



The fabric folded around her
face, pleating blonder hair
around the heavy hand resting
on her concave cheek.


She lay like a statue. A toppled
-don’t say fallen, she was never
fallen- statue. Don’t, there was
no sediment. There was no dust.

I did nothing.
