Freakshow #1

This is the first glimpse (almost you may recognise a line or two from twitter) of my new poetic magnum opus (yes, NEW poem – as in, there was a previous one. As in I’ve finally admitted SKIN BOOK may just be a poem).

It’s called Freakshow. Like SKIN BOOK it will come in parts. It will probably come a-part too

I lie

lip-reading the liquid crystal drumbeat.

Red dashes strafe the ceiling;

hours-minutes-seconds,

the tick tock triptych

flickers faces of a pulsebeat promenade,

a pageant scarred

from the egg-pan scraps and rancid lard

of my life.

One by one they hide their whispers in the roar,

the crowdsourced maw,

the thousand mouths

that pound and gouge

their silent cries

inside my skull,

behind my eyes,

repeating

repeating,

repeating, repeating:

Freakshow.
