There Will Be No Rage Upon This Page

Posted in poetry with tags , , on July 22, 2017 by malartart

not about

their insecurities or

points played fair

and not

not to do with the

victimising they continue

to solve or lash upon

the underwhelmed

but just me alone in the dark

back comfortably against

the wall and

morals unspoken

with well kempt patience in solitude

disarming no one as no one is here

but I

I and what I’ve learned

to be more complex than right




You Were So Vain…

I know it won’t exactly heal me

But surely one more beer won’t kill me

I drink to you after the fact

So much so, it feels more like

A delayed suicide pact

Mine shot himself in the head

Yours jumped off a cliff instead

Upon a record album cover well stacked

There’s photographic evidence to be had

Where all can be witness to the act

In the Seventies at Beachy Head

Bear Trap

Justice for J-pegs

             Downloading and out in Beverly’s Hell

As a memory sticks in the craw

         Now we know what happened upon the Grimpen Mire

Destroy the ego, insult the id, pull the nose of your superego

                                                   And (re)invent the luminous Hound

           Untethered from the rugby scrum’s grasp

Sign over the reality cheque

                Untwist your damaged lip

                        And watch the narrative unfold

                                                     Hey, use fumetti if you wish!

         (as a photo montage supposedly never gives you bad breath)

My memoir may burn in the heath but @ least illegal music still saves lives

… because of heresy and hearsay…

                           And what Doyle’s crooked man eventually did

Disguising himself as a victim of circumstance

           To escape being taken in ‘the Rapture’
