automatic writing #17

vulnerability through exposure 
no hiding place in a world where nothing is secret – 

– exposed like a street corner exhibitionist 

– exposed like an old photograph 

– the bacteria of the enemy hidden in underwater, 

and again,

exposed to the elements 

waterproof skin, factor 50 cream splooshed on egg white skin – rubbed below the border line – no passports or papers required 
no border guards with dirty money preventing entrance
at the epicentre 

the Bible written on a grain of rice

microscopic psalms

    FLORIDA IS FULL OF HIDING PLACES
    PEOPLE HIDING PEOPLE
    SLIM CHANCES OF HEAVEN
    NOTHING OR NO ONE SALVAGEABLE
    PSEUDO-SCIENCE DRYING ON THE FENCE
    EMOTIONS WITH MUSCULAR MANIFESTATIONS
    A THING OF THE PAST, JOHNNY BOY
    NO AMOUNT OF JAZZ GONNA INFLATE THAT TUBE

      he bungled the job
      the instructions were coffee stained smudged – millimetre read as a mile – measure twice
      – cut once
      God with his bucket of nails

      poets working at the ticket office, train driver, serving burgers to the overweight, sweat rings in the shape of a forgotten land –

      sausages contain knee and eyes that look inside your stomach walls

      on and airplane with dry eye
      pooping at 25,000ft

        AT 25,000ft THEY EXPECT ONE TO POOP IN A TINY PLASTIC BAG
        I ASKED FOR 2 BAGS
        THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT ASKED,
        “AREN’T YOU THAT GUY WHO HAD HIS SHIRT OFF ?”
        SHE WATCHED ME POOP ON THE HIDDEN CAMERA
        PERHAPS SHE IMAGINED IT WAS PORNOGRAPHY
        THOUGHTS ABOUT ME CLAMPING DOWN
        AND DROPPING A LOG
        —TRIUMPHANT AFFIRMATION OF LIFE—
