brunel

Woken by the sticky hand of
morning, attacked in slumber
on this island-
-with a head like Vesuvius
at this…
…time of day the synchronised watches conspire,
electronic beeps beep
beeping throwing sleep
aside I realise
my glasses aren’t on
the room is underwater blurry eyed
last nights poisons, the usual suspects
are inside
but where are my glasses now?

Ah, perched on the bridge of my nose,
a bridge Isambard Kingdom Brunel
would be proud of.

    the sticky hand of morning:
    who does one thank for the hermaphrodite hands ?
    watered-down sex or warmed-over love
    in bed with tasteless thoughts and friendly hands
    exaggeration………..excursions movie stars experimentation
    unconscious sodomy
    master-slave in the garden
    GOD sleeps on the top bunk

      god sleeps where the hell he wants – top bunk –
      sleeping bag –
      bivouac –

      the hermaphrodite Adam’s apple the size of a softball –
      the clues are hidden in front of your eyes – treasure maps for sale in the garden – sticky ribs for sale -finger in warm apple pie –
      close your tired eyes
      let the needles sink in

    APPLE gets mentioned twice
    mathematicians put things like that on hooks and tangle them in front of Freud Fish
    denial…………..good ol’ denial (protruding)
    sexuality and violence
    uncanny feelings/compellingly unavoidable
    repression creates another self………………..a stranger
    this stranger repeats self-induced nonsexual foreplay
    instinctual urges/drives/feelings/excitement
    a sense of self…………are you really you ?
    the real cheesecake is the persistent anxiety
    free associations honoring compulsive thoughts
    respecting the norm
    buying passage to genital pleasure
    hermaphrodite hands
    they have to be hermaphrodite
    no straight male could touch himself like that
    that kind of thing would cause trauma
    yes, it was hermaphrodite masturbation
    the realm of sticky hand………..narcissistic as hell
    the stranger has an imaginary identity
    affectionate fantasies……….safe self-boundaries
    no boundary-threatening straight handshake
    it was a well-identified hermaphrodite hand
    almost no resemblance to the straight hand
    nonetheless it permits release
    to achieve expression

    WOKEN BY THE STICKY INTERNAL HAND OF
    MORNING, ATTACKED BY AIR RESISTANCE
    OF SLUMBER SPELLED SCIENCE
    ON THIS ISLAND OF FORCES AND SUBSEQUENT ODORS-
    -WITH A HEAD OF A HIGHLY SKILLED TECHNICAL PERSONNEL
    …AT THIS
    …TIME OF DAY ESTABLISHED LIMITS
    ELECTRIC BEEPS BEEP ALWAYS THE ASCENDED CHRIST
    BEEPING THROWING SLEEP QUMRAN SCROLLS BEEPING
    ASIDE I REALIZE MY BLOOD IS WHITE
    MY GLASSES AREN’T ON YET I GUESS THE SPEED OF A FALLING OBJECT
    THE ROOM IS UNDERWATER THE ELDERS ARE GUARDING THEIR FLAMES
    BLURRY EYED SITTING UPON MANY WATERS
    OBJECTS OF CHURCH PERSECUTION
    LAST NIGHTS POISONS: THE WOMAN SEED BRUISE
    THE USUAL SUSPECTS DENSITY VARIATION MOTION DISPLACEMENTS
    ARE INSIDE THE CHILDREN OF THE CORN
    BUT WHERE ARE MY GLASSES NOW ?
    THEY ARE UNDER MIRACLES UNDER VIRGIN BIRTHS
    BUT WHERE ARE MY GLASSES NOW ?
    THEY ARE WALKING FROM JERUSALEM TO EMMAUS
    AH, PERCHED ON THE BRIDGE OF MY NOSE
    MY MODERN WORLD NOSE THE LADDER OF MY FACE
    A LADDER ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL
    WOULD DESIGN WITH PRIDE
    RUNGS OF GOLD
    ISAMBARD

    ASIDE I REALIZE MY BLOOD IS WHITE:
    we cannot impose meaning upon words
    you suck on butter because your throat is dry
    rasping you try to measure your sexual awakening
    horse-breath in the quiet bathroom
    initiation of the hand… carnal gravity
    the power to make seed
    loving swimmers undisciplined

    ASIDE I REALIZE MY BLOOD IS WHITE:
    macabre humor at work
    cadences slow and regular
    the longing for fulfillment
    ecstatic fulfillment
    greater and greater pleasure
    biblical measurements
    not a nymph but a hermaphrodite hand
    five fingers of unpayable debt

      throwing jokes like rioters throwing bricks – hairy palms
      palm face down to avoid forest fires – ball of fire above your head – walking a Roman mile in slippers – cobbled stones – double jointed Siamese twins see no joy in this sketch

    Fish in bowls with memories
    Swimming in submerged castles – forgetting –
    short term memory – no recollection of the past
    of the memories no need to repress
    sex is violent – he thinks but doesn’t act – she sleeps in another postcode timezone –
    and you keep coming back her
    and you keep coming back to him
    the hermaphrodite –
    the mix of two
    SHE IS YOUR MUSE

    hours spent weeks past with her inside
    her fingers reconnecting pathways
    an attempt to remember the stranger
    to remember you the bone crunching handshake
    bone fragments the trauma crunching

    wait a thousand years and let future people work this out

      future people are ELUSIVE
      people ask what “future people” will be like
      the simple answer: winded, lathery horses
      music makes them shiver
      their seed are old and tired
      too distant from GOD
      exchanged blood…..no longer clean
      the ancient aristocratic/savage lineage is gone
      beings in the CHAOS pit are draining every lived moment
      I can see their milky fog

    Blood clotted amongst constricted veins –
    hairy with the intake of heavy chemicals –
    the future people knew this – were shown schematics – attended seminars on their roles – were designated jobs – they memorized memorandum – spoke in tongue to obscure the censors – then they waited amongst clouds of ochre and ash

    while on vacation the poet extricated his future children into simple sentences
    constantly denied by his butch wife he paid for the services of shopgirls
    store clerks were down with lying cheating manipulating
    doggedly pursuing a big house they shortened their visible gash
    mucous membrane like the glossy magazine
    not a single hair a tad swollen
    plumbing the depths
    both active and passive
    what a contest the actuality of life
    an umbrella for the schematics….a sidewalk around the bed
    performing in place encoding intimacy
    grammar tongue honey so close to the coal bin
    inviting but crude look away from the basement
