OFFCUT POPS 1 - SAWS





the history rings 
in a record tree
thats never cut down

still
go
round

silent argument
layered over
offered opinion
invisibly coexisting

safe from saws forever
on a 
peerage
croquet
grouse house
lawn

~

the found tumour
inside killers
bonesaw mind

filed in crime museum backroom
under 'satan gland'

and uncut antiheroes 
tread water
undiagnosed
in the riptide public pool

~

we-
kill 
to know

they-
learn braille
on
death row

crash helmets gas grill 
and juiced striptease law
saw down incendiary boughs

that
fuel our 
monkey fire

NATURE POP



god
forbid
i
unwittingly reverse
into
a
reserved parking spot
at
the
intelligent design
activities center

but
the silhouettes
of
sky born seagulls

well theyre 
just like
calligraphic strokes

freed fragments
of
fountain pen cursive
escaping over 
the bungalow tiles

and
they
blow
my
weak and loaded
jelly and formica
haunted pork
mind

WRITING POST




relegated crowded corners
empty of troubadours and friends

suck it
use it

yellow page overspill
damp with repurposed
crooners and enforcers

a tigress
on a tv morning sofa
calls time out
on the endless night

suck it
use it

receive a writing post
in the crapshoot fallout
of academy failure

standard issue black dog
humps at your leg

suck it
fake it

coronation crown
of derelict farm mist
laid without ceremony
on your soft tissue fog bank

abandoned mental ward gloom
loams and foams
where heartwood should be

suck it
wear it

rattle your rockets
in your mfi silo
and 
launch nasa challenge 
into the giddy
mouth-breather wind

and if you find it all 
a stagnant informant pool
with nets and mops and drags 
stacked in veteran formation

suck it
use it

and pin old dirt
like beacons like badges
on
the
new sores
rich vein
within
