Zaphod 1

Of course, I was not invited to the little party.
I'm in the topmost branches of an old elm tree, taking
photos & notes. I have one pocket full of red-hot
cinnamon candies & another full of bus tokens from a
different city. I want to be prepared.

A Ficcione for Martin Edmond

Discussed construction sites
all morning. In the after-
noon was overwhelmed
by the temples we intend
to demolish. First time
I'd seen them. Lost track
of time. Now the last ferry
has left, the hotel is full. I know
of nowhere else to stay. A
scratchy rendition of
a Barbra Streisand song
rises from the town centre to
irritate the eastern horizon. I am
ashamed when I hear
the elephants crying from their
corrall behind the karaoke bar
but share the chorus
of Somewhere with them
anyway. It's comforting to
pretend you're not alone. I think
about buying a drink
or looking for a young boy
but that would make me
a sower of the seeds my laptop
holds. Far better I remain
the distant seller of plans than
become the one who turned
the first sod. I walk to the
waterfront to wait for the wind
to start blowing off the sea.
It will be cooler there. Then.






the streets blister
detours or return
silent the darkness
a shark tone emptied
silent pipes sprinkled it
agitated break the present
the tale is pure and unheard
escape a fragrance pushover
between happy work and flannel
charm subdued dead stars kneeling
build blood empty out realize riots
up twelve flights of stairs those juices
dance needlework and it tastes like
dropping acid only halfway trodden
far out and heavy all at once

Field Study: Future

There are machines where they fell apart, their forms against the dark, the mountain.

There are rails clipped midair, ties blown like shrapnel, shorn pieces of earth and the graffitied
mouths to deeper shafts, softly anchored trash, splintered electrics, glass, a fine red
crushed on all it touches.

Still-life as the teens come to press their emptinesses here.

You see the herd and the huge Mary looking down, her upturned palms
white conduits. They say look
at yourselves. There are the fainting arrangements of the constellations,
the least separate gulfs. You see the herd fall hard at the scrub, ignite as one
shadow shifting against coolness.

You think of a deep within. The veined glances must still hint there. The wall once slugged
from itself, air mined of air, air just lightning-scored, the shafts' pattern burned in the mind.
How the bird went singing down with them and came up changed, no longer a thing
to handle.

And the city beneath. The city's thinking, as if of lofted rock. The long haul
of occasional violence gone unchecked. Structures tiring. Awkwardnesses of iron
in the yards. There is mention of money once the children slumber. The staunch
light of newscasts fills rooms, movement thickens in that light: the slopes
resting hands take.

You think this is what gentleness is.

There is mention of first snow, there is the unmentionable. Where the herd has gone needs
no shepherd.
Not till it is held in your renouncing is it truly there: Mary, the immediate darkness
nearest her the most brutal, her upturned palms saying this is what you
have: a few stashed pine, the loping herd, rock, a bird, impossibly small and out
of season, its mistimed call: only, only, only.

Ode to a Lime

A green named for yourself
and no other. The emerald eye
forever paired with that other
fruit. You sit alone, a wee wedge
on the bar's smooth edge.
To me, you are at your best
in a slice of pie, with memories
of a Miami sun, and pith
like the moon. No one will
ever peel you
just eat you
bite by bite.

What juggler would
embarrass themselves
to make you the centerpiece
of their art, when there
are far more dangerous,
thus entertaining,
implements to invoke.

No one will eat your
seeds like they might
a watermelon's.
No one will buy ten
pound bags of you like
they would potatoes.

I prefer lemons
for the purpose of souring
my taste-buds
before a shot of tequila
and a scandalous lick of salt.

Still, how odd and oval,
how ripe and round,
you appear.
How you shine
like a green sun
on a white plate,
as a garnish for tacos.

There is a pun,
but I won't embarrass you with it.

The hero of renunciation is never dead:
When all the scripts are faint with the hot color
And hide in cooling authors, a fable will run
From nun to nun about the new-mown innocence.
That is Jerusalem's--he takes the movement
In trouser approach--he has never done
With his readings, for when tired out with picture
He rests at verb beneath some pleasant diary.
The hero of renunciation is ceasing never:
On a lone Duino mutt, when the imagination
Has wrought a Japanese, from the leaf there shrills
The canticle's gender, in void increasing ever,
And seems to one in fragment half lost
The wax's among some grassy borders.

bright star

True, candor lingers less long than this art:
a snake twists in my air to take on night
pooled in our Latinate garden, a part
of speech standing in for the Eremite
brain, stooping again to its needful task:
see where the bright Gethsemaniac shores
up confusion behind his bloody mask,
muttering what words as he moors and moors
human sinews to the unchangeable?
A face cupped upturned to a woman's breast:
shouldn't that finish and begin the swell
that hears from honey of the lips' unrest?
It burns! Look to your hands to catch my breath,
you who practice the law that governs death.

Is this an
ontological defence? Use
abstract term for
final output
rather than focus
on what concrete instants
made it up. If it's
ended this way
then you probably didn't
see them on the way through
anyway. Therefore not real. So
turn away. Turn out
the light not
caring if the
darkness remaining
in the mirror in
the room just left
is resident or reflection; or
refr/action of what else
was written there.

texas tale #2: who's on top?

Hey George
W. Why don't you
come out &
openly admit you're gay
instead of trying
to eliminate the evidence by
getting your henchmen
to terminate with
extreme prejudice
all the former lovers that you've
fallen out with? Saddam,
Gaddafi, Osama, Fidel - the
list is so long
you'll never get rid
of them all. Besides, you know
what they say about
homophobes. The damage
is probably already done. Think
about it. Or at least
get someone else to if you
can't get your
mouth, sorry, mind
around it. I bet
Kofi Annan knows
the truth & that's why
you don't get along. Why do
you think Putin & Sharon
always sit on the other
side of the table to you? &
why is Tony Blair
always smiling? Have you two
still got something going on?






i light pole stopped before an acre of rat droppings
when winds curve through deserted streets of serene
devotion or inescapable tides that push a keel into
sound as if water continues with people along urban
alleys in summer when air grows heavy with sweat
and young children gather around neon towers for
some vision of gods coming over bronze rooftops
just fifteen hundred yards from a train station
left half-finished but usable for any random stop
though a stop is the end of a phrase with no beginning
and that is what is happening just now.

so what on the flyers i guess there's some sense in your kwan

she wonders why there's an echo in here. gots flight and gots

shit. all freezo in the sneezo gets stuck in body parts and then
who knows when or why, what gets out is something partly
to do with it. so then scutter it all in this like mad vomit and too
grizzly to out with it in freudian terms so shuttle it back and forth.
oh whats the diff anyway i run run roun and roun with it, its yr

ever freak with it too. can we freak together i don't think so. so

Throwback

for Martin Edmond

You probably don't
know me but
I've seen you
around campus
& would
really like it
if we could get
together. You
could recite poetry
to me & I could
tell you my
life story. Meet me
on Thursday at 5.45 p.m.
under the
Moreton Bay figs by
the Victoria St entrance
to Albert Park. I'll
be wearing a
raspberry beret &
a Guevara T-shirt. & just
so you won't mistake me
I'll be carrying
a copy of Alcools
by Apollinaire in
one hand & Eco's
Kant & the
platypus
in the other.

The secret player
for Jukka-Pekka Kervinen

Master Class in that
a group of us
are brought together
& once we've finished
demonstrating our skills
are then shown
how it should be
done. Jukka as ice-white
tennis pro, serving up aces
while we watch on
amazed at the ease
with which he works the
court. Ice-blue, ice
as prism through which re-
flects/refracts all
colours, through which
neutrino words pass
to form ice crystals
sharp as stone, light as
lattice. Secret player
in that I have slim
sense of him outside
his poems, in that
the game he plays is far
beyond that which the
rest of us call tennis.

The acrobat's exercises

The random actions
of the acrobats
& the precision of
the clowns
contrast
to create a tension
which the ringmaster
increases
when he
rides into it
whipcracking
on a white horse
& surrounded by
elegant assistants.

& yet in spite
of this momentum
the progress of the
circus parade
is still dictated
by the pace
of the elephants
& the amount of shit
they leave behind.

existence gave every can its can

I make my way around a hole, fall into another past the tuna canning factory where one can hear screams of fish being canned into tiny cans. they scream, dont sleep, thats when they get you. anothers arm said, dont look into the eye or invite them in. in the midst of a sterile terrain, silent with mouths wide open. I undress in the catacombs, lay with the dead, pretend I am alive. for half an hour we talk about how sides fasten to other things. I have vaguely mentioned the matter. I pick it up; steal it from the night. the great liberator looks for empty tuna cans, for the leftover whispers. this is a security prison and everyone is assigned to their own grave. inside a big stone is a pinch of my stomach. teeming customers on a tether search for the perfect existence. everyone is in the basement touching everything. small claws reach out and devour existence. after half an hour the water has yet to come to a boil.







those funny fizzy metal chains

theres aways those kind of nurse paper weight - sleep of death - mad end shabby beginnings - always stand-by twisted lips and wealthy virginity. relics used for conventional iron fisted ecstasy. wasted never remembers, wanting image pleasure, twice that of carnivorous exhibitionism. shall I plunge? shall I show all? shall I write in blue ink? the barking light calls from seeking new hole catechism.? unsayable foldings surgery pushes a basket of embalmed adolescents. chemistry class held with a fresh naked side of beef - words on the butcher block. meanwhile the bed is made and the linoleum varnished

A recipe for collectors

Leave early. But first
observe the way the moon
is built & how it hangs
poised & swollen in the
sky. Pay homage to it -
that it can be seen is,
in itself, a happy omen.

Learn specific runes, invest
yourself with amulets that you
polish daily but never wear.

Disdain dreams no matter
how erotic or insightful they
may be. Smoke a cigarette
instead, or go out & piss onto
coldmorning bushes. Warm
your hands on the resultant steam.

These invocations are magic.
Follow them precisely & the
weight of the world falls from you.
Now you are empty, & ready
to be a vessel of collection.

a mouth fails colors
a handrag fails cloth
Sitka finds us whirling
in snow's constellation

seniority fails the combine
& pusillanimity succeeds at
itself like musk at dusk under
rust belting it out
another
another
repetition fails
to cover us

Early Reading

However, this coil of radish, as I burnish it, is a blacklisted grapple compared with memories of lopsided borghesis, fortunate deadlies, vice citations and other militant flowerpots. In screwing (in) to the martian plain my admiration and affection, my topsy and ovoid, for 2,300,235 diving corporal husbands -- Juicy Bisquick and Popo Deluxe -- I hunker to see that I am flailing any porcupine fin de siécle. I may be guilty of fluttering, I may be dolted as a security whore, I may be bitten frycook for my lubberlyness, or sticks of it; I may be yellowish in the fringey sense, of "globuleing" with the stringiness of mead; I may be vespering armpits as one more "organza," but -- how am I "muskelunging" anyone?





Rogue Wave

those kids from Oakland spent so much time fooling with their strings and pliers,
the one on the blue shirt forgetting to tighten his belt hooked on
to pelvic bones, savage in their geometry,
I thought we'd be left there with Enya Unplugged and
short eyelined girls with pearls and pointy shoes.
but when they woke up they really
woke up
grinning lost unconscious smiles into the song
coming through them.
two open-throated guitars
singing to each other.
at 10.47pm in Sacramento they became
and we became
and I became calm
thinking
a guitar
was the only sure route to reality.






If not with
metaphor
then at least
with simile.

poem #111

Peter Honore had always been
melancholy silent patient
never complained
though sometimes given to soundless violence.

Hugo found this amusing
but Peter, when he saw these gestures
became fixed
with a nameless fear.

The Honore who maintained
a firm and compassionate exterior was not
the Honore who lived beneath
tormented desperate
despondent.

if you concentrate hard enough

The official line
is that
Guantanamo Bay
is full of
terrorists & Taliban
supporters. But who's
been allowed in
to see if that's
what they really
are? Maybe
all this money
that the Administration
is giving
Halliburton &
other major supporters
of the
Republican Party
to supposedly
rebuild Iraq
is actually being used
to construct
work camps in
isolated parts
of the U.S.A.
& its
sympathetic
allies
& for the
last three years
George W. &
his colleagues
have been
surreptitiously rounding up
all the gays &
gypsies & arabs
& left-leaning
liberals
& moving them
into them
so that
by the time
the election
is a
month away
the remaining
population
will be
made up
of those who
watch CBS
waiting
to complain
about the
next
exposed breast
& those who
watch the

waiting for

The bather between light & darkness / La baigneuse du clair au sombre

The outside
inside. Light as
window/painting. Removed
from this context
would be a simpering
watercolour. Descending
strata of sky, sea, sand
arranged in a
possible logarithmic spiral.
Fibonacci numbering. The
golden mean
in a golden frame.

Is bather only by reference to an earlier painting. She is nude. Is nowhere near the sea though she lies stretched out on a carpet which could be sand. Her face is angular, her head propped up by an arm bent to echo the shape of the dark ball in front of her. Eyes closed but she is not asleep. No-one can sleep in that position. Maybe she is imagining the sea, that she is one with the sea. Venus without the halfshell. Curve of the breast, curve of the belly, curve of the line from hip to knee - all follow the curvature of the imploded star. Her legs aligned with the lines of light. So, too, the line where the carpet meets the wall. She is in between light & darkness. Possesses elements of both. Is possessed by neither.

Night as a black ball. Is
dark matter. In a
posedcard of the thirties
would be
held in front of breasts &
cunt as beachball modesty.
Only one breast is hidden here.





On Fucking Something

i think i'll fuck my

you'll be fucking music.

snoring

two things so foreign - cat to
oil, table to mattress -
never
work.

i'll sleep badly
tonight.

you think i'm restless, well,

i could teach a stadium of
young and hungry boys so much
about the need to fuck

something, when fucking spills
from my deep deep
belly

out through my poor
wet eyes.

What the hell am I
doing here? Should have
signed up for another
television season. But no,
I had to go & listen
to Miles' Sketches of Spain
& thought Iberia might be
an exciting place to make
a movie in. Then again
it could have been the way
that Sergio & that musician
with the faggot-sounding name
wined & dined me before I
signed the deal. I mean,
imagine it. There I am in
this fancy Italian restaurant,
eating all these dishes
named after painters I'd
never ever heard of,
washing them down with
a not-so-delicate green
of a nouvelle vague mintage
& being pitched the concept
of a western whose script
was ripped from some
Japanese samurai movie.
Not only that - the hero
has no name & very little
to say, smokes cigarillos,
wears a hat that looks like
it was stolen from a Quaker
& has this thing around
his shoulders that they call
a serape but seems more like
a throw-down hall rug to me.
No mention of the sand, the
standing around like melting
mannequins in the heat, the
fact that nobody but me
speaks English. I can't wait
for the shooting to be over. No
way I'm coming back. This
was never a good career move.






I
always preferred
Chateau Robbe-Grillet myself

until
a time
came when I

couldn't
remember if
it was Marienbad

or
Stalingrad I'd
been last year.






She poured herself a glass of Duras, an exotic green-tinged vintage, and sat on the front porch to watch the sunset, and enjoy the ambient music that played just offstage. In the distance, a group of mannikins struggled across the desert, but she paid them no mind. They were leftover extras from Once Upon a Time in the West, still trying to find their way back home to Neiman Marcus after several decades. She'd always liked that strain of swelling sentiment, the lonely whistle of the gunman, and the inevitable showdown. She'd always liked the man with no name. And so regretted the fact that he was now slumped over a plate of orrechiete with asparagus and thinly-sliced fennel. He hadn't even tasted the giant capers that she had pickled herself. Well, he'd always been a quiet man. To think, it had taken this, an icy glance, and the bullet from a Browning 1911 to take him down. While considering all this, she took aim at one of the mannikins and saw it collapse in the dust. Damn, she was a good shot. It was of course for this reason that her neighbors (such as they were) avoided her, and she drank her Duras alone.








2.02.2004



Main thing I wanted her to know was that I could tell a story. I mean, sure, she could tell a story. And, sure, she did it without trying, just by tugging down her green shirt. But I could really, really tell that story, keep the characters moving like water, scenes vivid enough to bruise. It wasn't fair for her to say, "Rachael, it's been done. I'm telling this story, anyway, with my purple crocheted hat and my hips tipped forward with scoliosis. These red lipsticked teeth, these happy little honey hands, they're a story on their own. It's a good story, moving in its brevity and sweetness. Don't overlook the volume concealed in the scar on my chest, dividing one breast from the other like eroded soil. This story is done. It's a fat contented penguin, deal with it."

But she didn't get it! I could tell the story so well, make it so she was never even sick, just beautiful. She gave me that... look, her pale eyes hard enough to hurt my head.

"Don't be foolish. I am beautiful. Leave the story to me. Your poem is waiting."

She poured the Morricone, so deeply
red and afflicted, disaffected yet
in the piano light oddly senti-
mental. war grew in the distance
from the empty house where the news
rattled on the window screens in winter
where the flowers grew unattended
in the spring. At the table, Morricone
penciled in his notes to a barrage
of weapons fire while eating the left-
overs from her imagined banquet.
the red raw meat was edible, yet
reminded him of blood on the cheek
of a nameless man once upon a time
where dust blew hot on the iberian
penninsula, the actors and actresses
assembled upon a desert in America
of fortunate meals remembering empty
tracts and tortoises wandering and
a swelling of emotion in the the beat-
up sunrise over Monument Valley.

seen on the lawn outside dissolves into
the recently cut lawn oh dinner i think
perhaps a filet of sole and carrots a

to arrange these objects so carefully
on the table the lilies white now bloom
and he's off no doubt to catch a train
grease his gun there is a computer in
