leisure up my friend ! weaken open your shellfish hinge and wet your beak it’s a marked holiday break unmarred by family obligation there’s freedom to make the most criminal crown of mistakes in the name of some frown of liberal investigation
on the town an eager squad of collaborators are on board they have your back desperate, sick and starving gulls broadened to explore the deplorable on and on to the next and the next death defining task
a meandering stagger of a bar crawl perpetually powering through as the day spans a revulsion the heat stays as the day sinks beneath in place of the suns rays the heat radiates from the baked city concrete
stepping out from the shelter of the bar the night swelter respires fiercely not done with our steam of annihilation what establishment would take our kind ? city has already bowed over it's plumage to our ******* pilgrimage bark melts and peels in strips off the trees (meat shaved off the strip pole) our heels spark the pavement vermin and jackals follow our movement from shimmering dark spots and our vision constricts
our aim has become clotted... ...what was it that we reached for ? oblivions fruit seemed a doable pursuit
it's the usual downhill shambles from here familiar yet barely remembered a rambling guff of bad ***** comedy there is no plucky legend just an embarrassment
morning the city is gruffly petted with heat buildings quiver in the primeval whither wide mouthed and whiskered the catfish thrive in the sewers taking aggression to the air and fixing to the trees the insects speed into vigorous breeding
in the populated afternoon city is sternly scored pressed down on its wilted fur pushed from back to front each itchy person is its own greasy hair salt beads from brows and stinging eyes are blinded
scolded and bonded the witless humans slow natures patient pace is not kin to their will antsy ticking noises and electric whines whittle the air discomfort makes life immediate a deal to be flustered with every enduring breath is consciously felt alive and in suffering
i crouch my form in shelter a jilted couch to lean against bordering a grown over lot watching the foxes patrol in sweltering sun what expected prey brought them into the light ? i release my hurt understanding (it patrols also) my hurt snakes through the long tough grass and tacky broken glass it moves further raised in a mirage hover over welting heat from the melting tarmac this way i please my way into nurture this way i ease my suffering hum with the wires and smile at a good day putrefying
