WHEN DID THE FUTURE HAPPEN



THREE POTATOES

once upon a grey parade morning
i
left 
the
house
and
muddled out into the sportswear wake

i bought three loose potatoes
from
a
machine
where a person used to be

it asked too many questions
and
made
me
feel
inferior
to be organic and alive

but
it didnt file its nails
or
take notice
of
the
verbal abuse  

and
i 
'paid' 
the 
machine
with
an uncertain slap of celluloid
that
could
have
been
anyones

wondering when the future happened ?



HARMONY PLUG AND PLAY

i left thinking machine or person ?

i left thinking
we should grow
our own potatoes

but
everyones laying
astroturf now

round
their
harmony 
plug & play 
hot tubs



I AM PERSON TOO

once upon a back indoors and safe
i
saved
my
misanthropy 
for
the sealed sunset
and
i
said
bravely and aloud

i would rather person 
than machine
because i am person too

and
i
could
have
leant them a book about the modern world
refuse a bag
and tell them they are their own god

or
just
leave
a
smile
for
them
in
their watery abattoir eyes
dull with breeding
and sublet hope

or ask them
if they knew
when the future happened ?

for
his
misplaced
nautical 
whimsy

LIKE FARTS



pressure builds
like stormhead

then releases
like avalanche

like life does
like farts do

like the week does
into weekend

like death is

cos death
is breathing out

if
its
anything
