Cravings                                                                                                                       

Over the hill

 

another idol of dance and song      has written his name

in concrete rubble.

 

We do these things                       lest we forget.

 

We’re good at stuffing our orifices

 

full of                  heroes.

 

 

Once I plastered a wall in hexagons

 

sat inside the prison cell of a bee

 

saw life   governed by holy interferences

sheep for the slaughter

dogs at our bones.

 

 

Footsteps             pot-hole            years in the park.

 

Water splashes.               Ancestral cravings

 

light up

 

an advertisement’s head.

 

I show off my coat

 

ripped from another animal’s back.
