she (symbols)

she never had a favourite band and had visions of time travel

secret symbols came to her at night,
a notepad by the bed contained half-a-sleep diagrams

(this is what the detectives were after )

she had no recollection of the dream like states and didn’t see them camouflaged behind lampposts and bushes

bruises appeared where she suspected unwanted attention

the time in the UFO seemed to last a second

    COMMITMENT TO A FAVORITE BAND (?)
    MOCK-QUESTIONERS JUMP OFF TALL BRIDGES
    HATE EVERYONE THAT LOVES YOU
    REALLY REALLY HATE PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU
    CUT THEM OFF PHOTOGRAPHS
    CUT THEM OFF THE BANK ACCOUNT
    TELL THE POST OFFICE THAT THEY HAVE MOVED
    THREATEN TO SHOOT ANYONE WHO DELIVERS THEIR MAIL
    TELL CHILDREN AND PETS THEY DIED
    TELL RELATIVES TO DROP DEAD
    _______________IS THAT COMMITMENT ?
    CAPTURE EXPERIENCE PRECISELY
    SOUNDS AND SHADOWS—-DEVILISH HANDCLASPS
    FILTH AND CONFUSION AND NO MORE MONTHLY RAGS
    THE BED GROWS LARGER
    FOOD DOESN’T DISAPPEAR AS FAST
    THE PETS HAVE MOVED
    THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN TAKEN
    RELATIVES MIND THEIR OWN AFFAIRS
    NO NEED FOR A PHONE
    BIG SCREEN COMPUTER
    36/7 PORNO
    ——————–POETRY NEVER FELT SO GREAT
    *never too late to be alone

      EVIL TARTS SANDWICHED TOGETHER
      ON THE SCREEN

        radiation house of pictures with no faces – faces cut out – bodies and no heads
        the cutting away of all things –
        Phantom limbs
        selling loved ones in eBay – spare kidneys kept in jars
        – the discover of a new set of teeth
        – Victorian predilections for laudanum and a woman’s ankle – dead prostitutes litter alleyways

        the hairdresser wouldn’t cut THAT hair – just told me let it grow

        beating myself off while others sleep awash with mental images of mountains and traffic

        it’s the little things that fire the imagination

    evil tarts sandwiched together on the screen
    for $45 they will show me their hairy holes
    ecclesiastical associations
    unresolved poems
    soon, a knock on the door
    some woman from the agency
    I told them I wanted a tart with a strong arm
    —————-no facial hair please
    *I LIKE MY TART BALD

        no comment offered to the claims vampires were shipped here in containers on boats longer than a Texas mile – I have seen pictures and heard tales of electric chair fatalities – a man they couldn’t hang
        – a promise overplayed
        and under delivered

        satanic rituals during lunch hour sabbaticals –
        haircut like a medieval monk
        -a bald spot visible from way up there

        voodoo dolls made from odd socks found in all four corners of dark town
