    That's a beautiful image. Such an honour. I really do consider you and Chris Gordon my unknowing teachers - like I learned as much from your works as any teacher.

    thanks, Michael. Have just read your "Silent Age" by candlelight (quite cloudy and had a power cut). Top notch!!

    the planets of the other world feel it more

    17 syllable ku written while listening to the music of Scott Cortez*





    rising to the surface of my coffee worlds borne from a weave of guitar drones

    :


    she merges with the window on a Monday light is a dog she keeps for walking

    :


    if I hum walls will crumble or become cotton candy then I'll wear the blue shoes

    :


    keep me up at night I'll write your name with soft pencils in a camel's eye


    :


    running across red fields we change our leopard's spots and head for Paris


    :


    most of it made from air we lean into it through four generations


    :


    if anything: I watch a rose bloom in The Origin of the World


    :


    half the language a stranger eating take-away food she's a dust cloud


    :


    a 108.000 km/hour through nowt the speed of life as we know it a boy's ball


    :


    in the right pupil a revolving door to a hall for seahorses


    :


    that soft carpet that rough skin your virtual self gets infected too


    :


    mostly done by repetition life goes on your reflection: a hat


    :


    let's stay where the warmth is we can speak French if you like and eat apples


    :


    pockets full of faces the hole you entered was the one that ate god


    :


    let's move slowly not to damage the light the streets will catch us and laugh


    :


    born among nomads a dune is taken to the sacrificial mound


    :


    I'll hide u if u want read from the book of fruit sleep just half the day


    :


    between my ears a melting altar for the absent some muscles hurt


    :


    sometimes a whale or a biscuit slowly slowly pull out squeezed and deaf


    :


    believe me it's April the wind is a long cold stranger passing by


    :


    3000 milliseconds have you got your hat on while phoning slipfooteyestar


    :


    in a short life (they're all short) eternity is a D-major chord


    :


    like your loved one written in Neutrino you're older than sand and beef
