Spelunking For Normals

Poetry




Trash

Anonymous



I'll be fine

You'll see

Let go and I'll catch you


What do you mean

You can't?

You can and I'm waiting


Giant leap of faith?

Nice one...

And there's no other choice


Do you hear it?

A siren!

Some bastard's ratted us out


Shut your eyes and

Let go!

Of course I won't leave you


For fucksake please

Please jump!

Tell yourself you can fly!


Just let go girl!

And your

More solid than you look


Messed me up good

Can't move!

For chris' sake it's my back


Grab the stash and

Go girl!

I'll tell them I'm homeless




Must know my name is Jude


Put your cloak on twice Jude

Shiver in the chill

Greying yellow light and

Brushing knots at dawn

Those cockamamie boyfriend lies

Those flowers the florist sent

The suicide at Starbucks

Playing spaces in your mind

Deuces don't mean nothin' girl

They are shadows in the dark


See your heart don't come up cold

See the naked danseur

Play the cello Daddy bought

The one that Momma never played

And if a man called harm strolls by

Pray each and every morning

You'll see him stripped away




Lois


Without scruples

Without principles

Without honesty

Without influence

Without humour

Without a boyfriend

Without consideration

Without lashes

Without nails

Without personality

With no one but me




Hey Lois!


There's a sailor thing around the moon

I forget the meaning so what's it mean?

A circle looking all aggro-red and very upset


Like all stupid-angry or something

It's up there outside so take a look and it'll freak you out

Earth to Lois...


Said Earth to Lois...

You've got my red panties haven't you?
