All that I want to concern myself with is the rare vision of nature and to move amongst exceptional things, in the workshop of the imagination.
I came down to earth and realised the intentions of the gods had been impressed upon me, a gem of reconstruction encrusted into my paper crown ... I had been rewired into a new fool: an agent of the gods, a symbol of dark deviant beauty, a poet whose soul lies now in shards.
And so, I woke up just before the moon was expected to shine, then I went out to find intrigue and soon found myself tied to a gate with whip lashes across my back, it all didn’t make any damn sense ... but then the sun shot up and the ground started to burn my feet and the hot lord rose higher over my bowed head ... the birds began to jitter - the clouds began to litter - the drugs began to make me fitter; and then all in one high-octane adrenaline rush of appraisal for life, I dispersed the backropes and resisted the pearly gate and flew off richer, madder - more demented and most importantly free.
I had come full circle. I had abseiled to the lowest cringe. I had solo climbed up to the highest reality and had returned happier, whole, whole-hearted - fierce, fierce.Lee Richard Kirsten (The Last Poet) THE POETS BIBLE a letchard inc odyssey Vol. 1-3

Strange phenomena crowd my mind in the hot sticky nights of
I run to escape this enchanted madness, but my naked body is entrapped in a web of blind hate. It tears at my soul, draining the love I once knew, fulfilling it
with destruction and hate.
My name is Lucifer, King of death.
Slowly the figure fades into the vastness, a shadow drags behind slothfully.
The sun beats down, vapourising
energy and will.
Voices stab the figure, encouraging disbelief.
Sweat pours down, running lines of exhaustion and tiredness.
Dropping into the loose sand,
the figure kneels and raging like the ocean, echoes out sweet blasphemy.
Mirages dance in the distance,
shimmering with deceitfulness.
Slowly the figure dies,
its ashes lay to rest,
in saddened disfigurement.
I see narcotics in funny shapes, sizes. I see needles, veins.
I see weird unexplained freedom. I stretch out my wings, feeling
flight - death.
Let me sleep the dreamless sleep,
no pain, just a heavenly gain.
I talk, my voice echoes in its box, my muted friends don’t answer; they’re dreaming themselves alive, leaving me to talk to God.
My marrow dries, my skin dies.
Let me sleep the dreamless sleep.
Ancient warlords ride sturdy horses
along dust blown paths.
With bodies of armour and hands of sword, the army gathers upon a hill.
Flags of cult whip in the wind.
Ready to do battle the war trumpet is sounded, bellowing over the plains of Persia.
The rumble of horses hooves beat the air, as the voices of men come together in the clashing of swords.
Triumphantly the victor is crowned.
Grievously the defeated is beheaded.
Romanticize all ye lovers.
Read poetry, sing songs, drink wine,
Give a budded rose to her, when it blossoms - the time will be right.
And just like the rose, you will
open up to one another, smelling the essence of love.
But be warned.
If the rose is still budded and you open up, your relationship shall be pricked by the thorns of life and both your hearts shall bleed,
Left to wither in the garden of weeds.
Her beige back and thigh, tans in the mid-day sun. The sand clings to her toes.
Running through the clear surf, the water almost eagerly splashes upon her breasts.
Her voice like soft music, tenderly caresses my ears almost seductively.
To touch her would be a treasure,
but she’s so far in my thoughts,
in my dreams.
I love you.
Swan lake dancers
Spanish fly seductions
Provocative woman with idol bodies, out for a trip.
Can you trust them.
In your mind, you imagine - controlling thoughts and time.
You blow out the sun,
You touch the moons face,
You can sculpture mountains,
Your arms are wings, soaring through Currents.
You are invisible,
You are a god
Creating your own world
Indulge in something light.
Observe panoramic views, linked with space and time.
Sip the pink champagne sky with its bubbly delight, feel the creamy clouds melt slowly down, chilling your throat.
Talk to the peregrines gods of flight.
The pendulum is timing us.
Walk in the palace of Sultan rule, smell the money, steal the jewel.
Crush the grape - taste the wine, pure from the vine sweet divine.
The pendulum is chasing us.
Horizons are yellow, orange and blue.
Gulls fly south.
The water is shaking with lines of white, the night is blue, full of fright.
Champagne turns the colour of the night, its bubbles bring out stars and comets.
The pendulum is dimming.
Serpents bite the moon, poisoning the darkness. If you are brave it will not bite, ease your doubts feel its painted cold, smooth skin; look into its eyes, protect your kin.
Kiss its pout.
Lick its fang, have respect it’s a King.
Give him wings - he will fly like a dove.
Give him spine - he will bite your heel.
The frailty of relentless thought fades, into the dark open night.
The forest is wet and damp.
Voices are heard through the trees
as the wind passes gently, sending a chill all around. The eeriness of crept up haunt, stalks its lonely and horrified prey, as wild beasts are formed in the clouds arrayed.
On the earth, hasty footsteps crackle to the sound of withered leaves, scattered across the unwary trail, to defeat,
A loud noise echoes through the cool midnight breeze.
A sharp blinding light pierces through the heavens. I look up in glorified amazement, looking into the face of purity and grace.
I feel my soul stirring deep within.
Then, the holy one raises his hand and I feel all my earthly burdens been lifted.
My naked body rises gently and I feel the warmth of God’s love wrap me tightly, for eternity.
Young virgins in gorgeous blood shed. Bent crucifixes displaying
a repulsive and distorted figure of Christ,
Hypocritical confessional boxes,
stained glass windows.
Brass bells ringing - bringing together
communion and gathering.
Priesthood indoctrination - feasting on the good Lord’s body in desecration: breaking bread,
drinking wine - flesh and blood intertwine.
The 666 beast has risen.
Darkness draws its shadows, like vampire fangs growing longer - greater, crawling over the
sun’s warmth - cooling fever - with great cool & vacancy.
Hasty shore waters rush like salty dogs after sticks, bashing the sand smooth. The moon cuts a white path over the glassy water and the splashing drops of fizzy sea, that foam onto our squirming tongues,
they burn our soft skin throats, like seamen.
I found her at a party last night. She was a rich golden honey blonde, with a broad innocent smile and helpful nature.
The memories I recall out of my
beverage mind are so wide and vague,
that my perspective is slanted.
Guardian carriage got me here safe.
I was drunk,
my sleep seemed restless,
as though drawn out and made up of thoughts and not dreams, because it was a
As I write, my mind is still clogged by the same, some what percentage of a
dark burning evil water.
The nakedness of their bodies, is
radiated under the cool midnight.
With wet back and thigh, they make warm love. Entering into the game of foreplay, he feels her sensual wetness.
Her inner beauty welcomes him deeply:
Slowly he caresses her tender breasts,
kissing them with care.
The sound of lovemaking and arousal fills the nights air - rhythmically.
Newly weds carry each other tight over the threshold of dreams:
a white picket fence, crackling fireplace, cat and dog, boy and girl playing on a setting hill
Renovation is needed, cracks are opening, the garden is dying, dog kills cat, children are sick, dad beats mom.
Wedlock vows are derailed, the train leaves its carriage entering into courtroom divorce, alimony settlement, family feud -
the children are confused.
Their parents have broken the seal,
the shiny gold band ring, it’s in their past Till death do us part?
Inspirational juice, so succulent it gives life.
It’s like citrus birth, a new season, with different
ideas, all growing - dropping seeds that set us forth into another dimension, making us the pith of idea. Everything we make revolves around us, description is interpreted from unspoken thought, that we could never put out to the bleak, unsighted world of people with no depth - soon should they laugh at our words, for they are of amoeba nature, overpowering with their mass consciousness & insect rebellion The Invidual’s thoughtfulness, with vociferous bogus words & actions of no higher meaning.
The Druids of Time sit in candle lit rooms, smoking inspirational herb, wandering into pens and paper of imaginary rhymes that form shapes and emotions, dressed up in words that change the lives of the animated.
We are the Druids, philosophers of time and romantic charm.
Our words are in the hills, over the seas, crashing out into cores of dense molten,
filling the earth with
Saving the human race from thought drought. BETRAYAL OF TWO TIMES (The Garden)
Two betrayals spread out evenly, the beginning and the end.
Two gardens proposing death in the hidden.
Deception from these two kinds led us to be born - for a blood
so new stained our future, saving us from the sacrifice.
Isn’t it true that the Serpent
and Judas’ greed were as ripe as the fruits that brought us here and in that poisoned our choice.
Can you imagine the first shedding
invocation of a difference.
Innocence is cruel, like an extremely trusting Lamb led to the slaughter.
Innocence makes each and everyone of us victims, all following the new order of death
rising to a new life of naked rebirth.
Many of us betray ourselves, kissing death on the cheek.
Young death so appealing, you can fall in love with it.
My death was so ripe, so fruitful that it changed life.
I do not blame my elders or the great teachers for my death. I was just turned on by its thrill, it was so different.
I wanted to see what was on the other side.
Sitting here in my study mire, what can I from knowledge acquire?
Dog-eared; brittle, leathery books lay dust dormant on these study shelves.
What can I acquire I plead - is it fame, fortune, a degree or wisdom;
all three can make me happy, but wisdom I guess all men seek in the fortified depths of life.
The world cannot cheat a wise man - only he himself. So what do I do great source of unseen presence? What can make me solemn and wise?
‘Wisdom is found in yourself and your reality with life and how much you are willing to see in the unseen. Seek wisdom out, don’t wait for it to find you.’
O great Visage, source of life, touch my eyes, ears, mouth and heart, to make me understand the world clearer.UNTITLED
Eager to down the biting snake holding firm
its body clear its venom golden.
Fool you are
to be in its lure.
A numb head
Another side - wish you were here, wish you could feel me,
All the moments passed and outlived, we have either made into movie or poem.
The record of time never ceases to end, keeping the diamond on track and in tune to the labyrinth lives we have led.
Obstacle on obstacle, pain bound with obstacle is void of expression, like a lost proposal to a

Don’t you remember his words that stood bold and made you cry.

the blunt tool into my palm,
causing blood to spill over the tree, over the hill that firmly supported my thorn.’

Mist or steam.
Settling or rising.
Settling next to her under the sheets. Rising discreetly, discreetly pouncing.
Caught tight in an outfit of fornication,
never out growing it, never vowing.
It comforts, proper and sober, for all what she is, is a mother figure of option.

Still, is its fascination.
Men never get weary of its expense: its costly recruitment to the line.
The truth is hidden, just like the lead and shrapnel covered in crimson.
The sickness lies in the neglect of aftermath, where food is scarce and money shallow.
What can be done for now?
What can be said, to those who have waited and those who’ve returned.
Who will pin them and their pride?

Her understanding was always of a child, seeing the pasture in the battlefield.
An individual who becomes dependant on something, which transcends them only to a temporary level - begins to grow weak in spirit.
Dandy welcomes and dolly kisses to the stage at High Tea, where the tea is high and always green and nothing is what it seems. From afar you have come from stores ajar, on trucks and coaches and cars, bright as bristles and red as pipes, all types of twist and tell. Sernel is my name, as in sergeant and in colonel, but for no infernal militant fame do I intend to aim, but to bring to you, a strict thick madness, of a kind closer than near, so it is well you are here, so high and dry and plumed like feathers try, so fold your wings and things asleep and fall back deep into your seat.(Tea-Cosy enters)
I am Tea-Cosy, here supposedly with a word or two, to soothe your cosy watch-chain-hour and the games court in your tower. Young at heart, I dart with my arms stretched apart, fall on my chin and within time I heal, ready to traipse and trot with stains of tea pouring down to my heel. And now ...SERNEL: (Assertively) And do get it right this time, soldier!TEA-COSY: Filigrees and Dents, I introduce to you your host and the ghost of the boast, tad-daa. (Letchard enters)LETCHARD:
(Points with prim finger to the sky) Ahhh. A souvenir am I, for your minds to have near by, so find a place or palace and if not there have I at spare: there is cushy cocker band for the authentic man and for a mad Mrs Roof, her claw and ball hoof. There are paisley-tongued gowns, for the high coming down, fireplace purled fabric and unfurled wool-brick. There is mildew velvet and vinyl helmets, water cushions, woven hairs and cinnamon chairs for the pushy ones.(Letchard exits)SERNEL:
And now authentic attendants, wherever you are, in tents or bent basilicas, please give a pricey applaud for the curtain haul and the rollicking madness after all.(Curtain rises)SERNEL:
From under the gowns of shrubberies, the night in shoo and blab swims over the mortuary slab, over the nursery school, passed the silos and piles of straw, onto the ballroom floor. And listen, you can hear the waltz at dark, that soft black shoe over polished bark and then off again, over the tavern, over the foundry, over he hill and peak and listen to it speak, as the coffin opens with a creak.TEA-COSY:
Through the heads of trees, street lamps send shafts of light, sharp and smooth on the misted breeze. Squeezed from a tire, from the occasional car, a stone is fired into soft silver grass, where patient beetles loosening their bows, latch away their legs and toes. A row of abodes: matchboxes, drift dearie-dee on the thud thick black, and the safety matches hit the sack and the dogs moan to their fleas and the cats spit and fight and the moths ram into the light of the one and only house that burns yellow like a bottle brush of egg; and coming up the road you can hear him step, you can hear the puddles on the sugar shiny road, spat and plop and you can hear the depth at the bend of an ear - hear the hallucination, see the fascination and see the yellow disappear from our peeping minds, as the light turns-out, goodnight.(Curtain drops) MONOCLES AND HANDKERCHIEFS (Service bell rings in background and curtain rises)LETCHARD:
Good hello, with a clump of Tallow in my cup. The tea cart has arrived and now the start of a marvellous morn, is contrived in the marigold lawn: carnival wheeled across a field of luxury, laughs and such eulogies of life. Bugled and belled the air struts and the usual spell of mania, it takes us tamely near the bowl of colour, caricature and picture. Follow till the ending; it is only a little mellow bending.
INTERVAL: Words be freedom, sentences be wings,
set them together
for a new height in things.
In the soft cardigan garden, of his untold dwelling, Letchard lights up a sensational Section, spelling out phrase after phrase, to the gifted ears lifted about.LETCHARD:
(In the garden) Snake pies, pelican eyes, the slake beast lies in an elegant high, while its biscuit eyes and whisker tries to see beyond the wireless tune.
(On the roof) The Petticoat Road, with its berries, cottages and loads of cut hedges, goes on and on with a windmill or none, or a park in the sun on a swing. Though nothing is as fine as a bench and the sense that scones and fences go together.
(In his mind) Penknife. Walk-in cupboard. Feather duster. Shoebox. Stale photographs. Ugly neck ties. New hat. Broken necklace.TEA-COSY:
Shoe for shoe, Letchard steps through the garden, contemplating on the kind of dye, ink and paint to swirl in the beaker of his mind.LETCHARD:
I say, how about this then: a bright wooden bottle; a night moon and pot hole; the lint off a beard; a stint spent stoned and weird; a jug of rain for roots and a chug of trains which toots, all to neatly fit into a book.(Letchard and Tea-Cosy exit)
NOTICE: It has been reported, that a
Distorted Character, having a keen insight into the chit-chat of
things, has stumbled upon a
Euphuistical Cat. Having been described as a mellow creature with a
full rich cello speech, the cat
appeared with no signal as to its intentions, over-laying the
gasping character with a thirsty wit and wet spit. The Distorted
Character had this to say:
Well, it all took shape when in matin flight, from a crêpe satin bush, bedazzling me with light lisps and counts that the ambusher appeared. It held luxuriantly between its claws a meditative cigarette and in the air lay paused in sophistication, on a soft green leather chair, puffing on its smoke seductively, whilst I stared. It then spoke. Its words sharing a tone with my very own thoughts, words so splendent, that they brought me to fall into a pendant sleep and then, was I then deeply brilliant. But of course, naturally everything changed, for now the eccentric creature laid kaput on a mangy thatched carpet. No longer did it smoke a cigarette, for with each allusive toke, each one dreamier than the after most, did it post to its lips a handsome Pipe and leaning in towards me, whilst the cannabis glowed in the Pipes orifice, did say:‘Now don’t you think mind games with toys, is a delicate poise.’ (Distorted Character exits and curtain drops) ACT TWO BELTS AND BUCKLES (Curtain rises and Tea-Cosy enters, Letchard is seen seated by a desk in the background)TEA-COSY:
With pen pouring into a sheet of pine, Letchard locks arms with the colours in his mind; and he sways and like a drunk pheasant he brays, spilling his jug of mother-love and shrilling above his fathers snore for more, more of the violent nets and crow-nests, where the lively violins saw and the wifely doorbells ring for more, more of that orgasm wail, that rising organism of detail; and he, that lazy Bandstand Player, he slips a smile on his trumpet lips and forgets for a while where his trouble lives.LETCHARD:
Brush boy burn, brush boy burn, Your whip and spurn and bucket jewel, Shall not turn you red to cool.
Stale cigarettes calm your sores
And the clocks and cradles matter no more. Light it and dip it.
This is the appetite of your poverty,
Winter is inside your heart
And your baths are weeks and nights apart And as you well know,
The mildew and yeasty groin
Draw in, the scum and the bruised
And what you used is how you grow. Sip it and smoke it.
Coffee and tar
Sugar and smoke
Tuffstone and fire
Ash and spit
Stub and bile
Stain and spill
And the barbed wire kill.
Swing it and pour it again.
The cylinder cinder and purple finger,
The rim chipped and the blooded lip.
The Bandit Poet strolls by breakfast, lunch And supper,
In search for words, an upper,
A compassionate bed
And in the heads-air, that in pops and cracks tears, Is a serious life,
The one held
Dark delirious dare.
Shadowy and deep, the Crooner’s letters lurk low in the sheet of paper, perhaps scared to creep from their furrows, as it is better that the heart does not spill until it is dead. From a window, a light in Ianguid array, sedates the objects on the desk: a quarter-full jar of ink, slippery as prized marble, possess in its little rink, the most magnificent black possible. A black one could send against a wall to spatter and no one at all, no matter for their life, would be able to remove it. A traditional cup, holds a shiny medley of a familiar vermilion tea and the tall dark tincture of a Resin-THC. A muted candle, with drool down its sides, stands rooted into a bottle and a holder of water, it distils, as yet as unperceived as a porthole unchallenged out at sea.(Tea-Cosy exits)
INTERVAL: The unwrapping of the bird’s song, swished sweet inside the mouth, of not only one ear. (Tea-Cosy enters holding an archery bow in one hand and an arrow with a rope tied to it in the other)TEA-COSY:
(In announcement) It is high time for tea it is! (Tea-Cosy shoots the arrow across from one end of the stage to the other and rope is pulled) Heave! Heave!
(Tea-Cosy exits and Letchard and Sernel are pulled onto the stage on a platform with wheels, seated on a sofa, behind a table, containing a teapot, teacups and other finery)SERNEL: Do you believe it is from hammocks and boxes where those thieving crows come?LETCHARD: Who knows, but as I said, it is better they are fed, than dead. (Takes a sip of tea)SERNEL: Yes, but did you not say, you wished they took the poodle hair scarf, rather than the blue one; you would wear for a laugh.LETCHARD: That is half true, besides if it warms their jewellery, then there is no reason to begin a storm.SERNEL: (Sipping on his tea) Nice cuppa this is.
I sure miss the old hostel I do: the fossil furniture within, the mad overture of the inmates grin, the woollen radio crackling, as while a violin and piano cart the moth mind lace through the butterfly-works, where lurk suitcase memories of moustached men living in their mothers den, where care is a cake and kisses are as wet as tea. (Takes a sip of tea) Aah.SERNEL: Would you care for One? (Sernel offers Letchard a White-Leg from a silver cigarette case, also taking one for himself)LETCHARD: A darling Ling, why how treating. (Sernel lights-up Letchard, then himself)LETCHARD AND SERNEL: (Together) And now lavish gallery, it is by time of old, that we made our knavish leave. Heave tiger! Heave! (Letchard and Sernel are pulled off the stage and curtain drops) RED COATS AND PAMPAS GRASS (Curtain rises and Letchard is seen sitting by a desk, gazing out of a window)LETCHARD:
There now, stillness is resting nesting. She took from a gloomy vase
A dozen dripping stars
And the room in-a-sudden
Carrying mind good-bye
I am to think
Where comets lay
And find a spider there,
Her retreat must be such air,
Her feet are smooth and fair.
Watch over me young navel,
I travel unsafe
Poetry; small days and flashbacks are made to resemble this fine monstrosity. Assemble the troops officer, this cockaded flank has duty to parade: tramp mud and blood; spit boot and groom that weapon. Find the quarters below the earth, where the mind reports of mirth Line the trout; storm the trench and ignite the dugout, but do not score their uniforms, for we shall sell them reverently after the war.(Sernel exits) Poetry a life, poetry a drug, poetry the only vessel to unperturbed finality. (A raspberry is blown in the background and Raspberry enters)RASPBERRY:
Merry wishes you Highness. Bottled bees (Blows a Raspberry) I am Raspberry, the Party messenger by hit or miss, proposing for your notice. So pick a ticket your Highness (Pulls out a hand of tickets and Letchard takes one) but hide it in your pocket, as is to be you pass is free, to the Locket of Lunacy. Bottled bees (Blows a Raspberry) I am Raspberry.LETCHARD: A Party of what matter?RASPBERRY:
Why, laughter, cries and hearty chatter. It is a Party your Highness of kettle talk, with hardly a petal removed from its stalk. It is bubbles, juggles and fumbles your Gladness, things to bring your latent madness out: to be seen, but not told. Bottled bees (Blows a Raspberry) I am Raspberry.LETCHARD: And dress, what costume shall I be putting on?RASPBERRY:
Your Highness will assume a silly suit of humour, in short the sorts of a costume made for the stage, brass button armour and linen as straight as a page. (Preparing to exit) And now ...Wait! Wait! Say, I was just about to fetch a splash of tea for us, I am dead thirsty.RASPBERRY:
Aaaah, the swill of childish bliss and for your Highness have I just the fill. (Takes out from hip pocket a small bottle and hands it to Letchard) A frill to dust your dryness, for your Shyness to have and to hold as a last memory. Bottled bees, I am Raspberry.(Raspberry exits and Blows a Raspberry and curtain drops) MAGIC LANTERNS AND MUSIC GRINDERS (Sernel enters)SERNEL: And now Ladies and Gents, it is by time to allow of zany evidence, a dream to endow your crazy sense. (Curtain rises)SERNEL:
Down a fangled grove, acrobats and minstrels rove, in spangled spats and hats, orange, yellow and mauve. Minstrels under their billowing hats, ensemble below at a bower-shaper, setting string and vapour, under a brush of bubble-gum paper. Whistling lips and somersaults, heads at hips with tricks, the acrobatic boozer dolts pile up like pick-up-sticks. A pantaloon plays a spoon, on a tub of dirty dishes, while a manic-loon blows a tuba, at his late grandfathers wishes; and the reputed two: sister Nettle and cousin Poe, play their ‘Boil it, Toilet’, staccato for the spewing and the foaming on their padded balconies and soft rows.(Sernel takes out a White-Leg from a silver cigarette case, lighting it)SERNEL:
Laugh all you can, laugh like a day at ease, for this band of talents is what deity is. Laugh more, laugh more and strip your sides, trip wide, guffaw and count the tides, your mind is every pattern woven, the magic is your own, a kind of slippery satin chosen, is the mad-sick tone.(Tea-Cosy enters)TEA-COSY:
Quietly as the voice fades, livening instruments gently are tuned and warmed as once again, well-informed, the voice performs its words of choice.SERNEL:
Listen for the motive, the music most of all, the malady is a catchy one, a roller coaster fall. Listen to the colours, taste the dripping ones and spend your day fun hours, zipping passed the sun. And in the madness of your making, turn away from grey, abandon all your sadness, clearly seeing the way.(Sernel exits)TEA-COSY: The voice for the last time subsides and in full vibration, the instruments now abide, to their portion of romance and trance.
INTERVAL: Where ever he went, he carried his moustache and when asked why, he would reply and explain that it was plainly, a family heirloom.TEA-COSY: Paved with the bums of bottles, a road runs passed hotels and brothels, stores and pubs, roars and hubbubs (Letchard enters, seating himself in front of a bar-counter)TEA-COSY:
Entering a pub, Letchard seats himself and greets the barman, as a Jar Man slips from his support and a head dips into its quart. Off the walls in sorts of animal suspicions, hang tameable tricks and tears, visors of haughty expressions, made happy with drinks and beers; and pairing with a pinking shears, the pieces off his customers, a butcher-barber-cut-off-ears, wets his comb and precedes yes, to style yet another outpatient from The Home.(Sernel enters)SERNEL:
The rare inhale of ale on-tap sweetly wraps the air. The wood-ware from spilt drinks and polish is dull and tacky and it all takes one back, to the frilled labels on beverages and the hint of skin in lace and pearls. Never was such an age so filled with wine and sunshine: the many parasols and fellows smoking their woodbines, strolling unwedded and rolling in love. And it is splendid to recall the bend, that did lead to all the times we did spend in the derelict mews, heady with stews and brews, merry amid the sparrows and wheelbarrows, the stirrups and hips, the undone tassels and the tons of hassles of being free.(Bree, the barman stands behind bar-counter)BREE: Letchard. Would you care for a spot of tea?LETCHARD: Why yes Bree, a half-pint sounds splendid.BREE: If it were my guess, it is a pot-hot-Joint you are missing mostly.LETCHARD: Yes, you are quite right Bree. Bright as always.BREE: Have you heard; there is a sideshow been put on in the town’s square?LETCHARD: Will you be going?BREE: No, but one thing though, I would not mind seeing it become a box office success, I hear it’s very ornate.LETCHARD: (Drinks down last of tea) Ahhh, well it will just have to carry-on to impress won’t it.BREE: Yesss. ACT THREE SPIC AND SPAN (Sernel enters to stand behind a podium)SERNEL:
All those thoughtlessly far-gone, it is whistled and wished you stay that way, so come along and be extraordinaire, comeon and play and rare without care. Jump up and strip into those special clothes and become that child who very well knows, when to raise the curtain and show the show.(Curtain rises)SERNEL: See the show of a Life’s find, the greatest exhibition; see the excerpt of a rife mind, the latest extra dishing.
Clamour up to the sale of day-to-day paraphernalia, as for the very best I will tell you all, you cannot get better by a longer straw. So clamour up as member or leader of this day-to-day memorabilia and consider the curious dream and at once the bidding will begin, once you have been ridden of that furious theme. Going once, going twice, going three times - sold! OLD BRIGADE STREET(Sernel enters)SERNEL:
On Old Brigade Street, the promenade of marching happy feet, daily pass to greet and daIly on their funny friendly street; and in their booths the black telephones click and down the track backed roads the trolley busses start and stick and in every mustard store, is a custard door to that old home space; and the buildings and houses face the sun and the fields of Green and Gold hoist the horizon and on every porch and tile sits someone, torching that beloved Pipe or Section, smiling upon the day, in that old fashioned way.(Sernel exits)
INTERVAL: Side burned with an epaulette on his top lip, the Brigadier announced he was stripping rank, for a shave.(Tea-Cosy enters)TEA-COSY:
Simmering along a shimmering footpath, hooting passed the half daft dandies and heart to heart ladies; Letchard enters a corner lounge, ordering a sound Hinge of a warm to hot salvage.(Letchard enters and is seated by a table, followed by a waitress with his order)LETCHARD: Waitress, I ask you, when will Mr Cigar be popping in?WAITRESS: Well sir, I know he stops on here regularly, in fact sir, I think he is likely to arrive here at high tea.LETCHARD: Well when he arrives, could you please alert him to join me. Thank-you. (Sernel enters)SERNEL:
High in their roomy gables, seated behind their tasty tables, the mad regulars gossip and chat, sipping stably away at their tea, as on long standing broadcast a grand symphony, is brought at last to a landing degree. From the waxed kitchen, the perfume of soups and flans relume the stacks of itching troops and prized citizens, who flatly presume that period pieces and facts are nothing more than frames and cabinets for the sober.
INTERVAL: The strapping fire tenders drilled with a nodding song, under their brass helmets.(Mr Cigar enters)TEA-COSY:
Popping in for his usual Tea and Toast test, Mr Cigar is casually by the hostess, pointed to where Letchard is leisurely in his sweet asylum, seated on his best.MR CIGAR:
Letchard! (Letchard turns around, getting up from the table, to shake hands with Mr Cigar)MR CIGAR: Letchard dear boy, fancy meeting you here.LETCHARD: Smashing to see you, you dashing fellow, I do say do you come here often.MR CIGAR: Ha!LETCHARD: Please, please, have a seat.TEA-COSY:
Reminiscing mentally in dozy mouthfuls, on the moments spent rosy and doubtful of reason, Letchard and Mr Cigar ease on, shining and dining in the light of a very fine Thing.(Letchard receives a White-Leg making its rounds in the room)LETCHARD: (Takes a draw) Dancy stuff this is, dancy stuff. (Letchard hands the White-Leg to Mr Cigar) MR CIGAR: (Takes a draw) Yes, yes fine stuff, fine stuff. The Park. MR CIGAR: The Park?LETCHARD: Yes, let us go to The Park.MR CIGAR: Why now, that sure sparks a fond memory or two.LETCHARD: Marvellous, yes-yes absolutely marvellous. (Curtain drops) THREADBARE GOODIES AND SPARE PARTS (Tea-Cosy enters)TEA-COSY:
Running small races with untucked shirts and undone laces, Letchard and Mr Cigar on the clap-tap-tar, pay visits to the many far places, supporting and introducing themselves as play-play Sirs, when ever the sporting need occurs. Waving passed the grinning cars and tea sheds, the red brick houses and flower beds, Letchard and Mr Cigar wade, their trousers strutting through the tall balustrade of the haphazard Budding Heads, to the place that has its balanced trade on-up ahead.(Tea-Cosy exits)
INTERVAL: Those penny-farthing dreams are always a tinkle away from the corner they still today wink till.(Sernel enters)SERNEL:
What pure hark it is to stride in the stupor of the sun and kick with a shoe the powder of a blossom. To be outstretched on a Far Fetched Lawn, on an excursion sworn to adorn. Indeed, there is value in the picnic in the park, where all the remarkable people sit in the holiday of the gramophone, feeling all perfectly at home.(Sernel exits) (Tuneful whistling is heard in the background as Letchard and Mr Cigar enter) Here we go; we finally made it then.MR CIGAR: Yes, despite the short stop at the chess club, we made it in the best of time.LETCHARD: Right, do we wait here or look?MR CIGAR: I think ... (Packet appears from behind a bush)MR PACKET:
That gentlemen will not be necessary. I am by all means Mr Packet and it is my swapping knack, which makes me the top-lemon of all the other legmen. As is seen I am no lavy or dilly-frilly-fop, for don’t I wear: a scurvy red beret, a moldy Persian scarf, a frayed cuffed coat and to my trouser loop a hessian pouch of the finest growing Crop.LETCHARD: Fabulous day isn’t it?MR CIGAR:
Yes, isn’t it just. I say, how about this then Mr Packet. I swap you this (Holds out a bottle of marbles) my bottle of marbles, for that (Points to the hessian pouch) your Round of Golf in The Park. Deal?MR PACKET: Oh yes mister, it is a fair steal for the colourful vista, there to be revealed.LETCHARD: Then it is settled. To the OIympiad, Damned Friar or frog-toe, I must there into go. (Curtain drops) ACT FOUR TALKING LAMPS AND COUCHES (Curtain rises and Letchard is seen seated by desk)LETCHARD:
Have you seen the intangibIe battalion In the order of the day?
On the forefront
Of orbital play.
There is non-stop madness
As the hot horseshoe melts the hoof And drives the horse away.
And for them of civil good,
Let them trench like weevils in wood, For their cigarettes red quiet,
And the night cadet’s cry out,
Are the only things to still them still. As for animals,
There is no wonder
Yes, our answer is definitely in fond regards for familiar things, as with milk and cookies; pots and stoves; books and shelves; pee and pee pots; knitting machines and linen; cuffs and bruises; buttons and cuffs; wine and horses; whiskey and whiskers; beer and beards; watches and hands; sown seeds and sand and so on.TEA-COSY: Would you like me to pour sir?LETCHARD:
Thank-you my good one (Tea-Cosy pours and Letchard raises glass) Here is to soliloquy and to a health and a wealth of thoughts and fresh ideas. Cheers.(Tea-Cosy exits and Dolly Grey enters)DOLLY GREY: (Purring) Well, what is it we are having here?LETCHARD: Nothing dear.DOLLY GREY: Aren’t you going to allow me to taste, from that noble container?LETCHARD:
A taste. Well for that you will need a short smell for savour, a shallow utensil for flavour, a mind on balance to combine resemblance with proof and most but not least, a favourite tooth for my hall of trophies.DOLLY GREY: Oh so courteous.LETCHARD: Oh so pert and yes, it is for your own good.DOLLY GREY: Oh I refuse to be taken lightly. LETCHARD:
Now, now Dolly Grey, in lilac and black there is no lack of comfort there, as with wallpapered walls and an invitation to share a seat, in a Liquorice Room with Exquisite-heat. There is factor abound and method found in ones own madness. Each one to themselves, it is mine, it is mine, it is mine.(Letchard and Dolly Grey exit)
INTERVAL: He kept a stirring teaspoon in his boutonniere and when ever he mixed with company, a delightful concoction was was shared(Sernel enters)SERNEL:
The dusty coat of arm and the charm of remote standing, is as it must be, the theatre of theatres. Striped arm, uniform balm, the eloquent cinema and elephant grammar, are the animal endings to personal beginnings; and hitting on their Gerricks in moonlit barracks, good people write homeward letters, between walls of red and brown brick. He is insane and he is sane, insane and sane, insane, sane.(Curtain drops) ACT FIVE HATS CAPES AND CANES (Curtain rises and Tea-Cosy and Letchard enters)TEA-COSY:
Minding his own business and bliss, Letchard passes by the town and gown of everyday that and this, seeing kids in pyjamas and cats as calm as cameras; and the running children land on their chins and the sun spins down and pops on a pin and Letchard waves to the tin thin light and smiles goodnightgoodnight-goodnight.(Curtain drops) THE END WEED WARMER:
Ants and decadents, feathered chats and musical prats, connoisseurs and dears, I do-so bleach you and landscape, for a mere mad escape, into the regal shape of hearts.(Curtain lifts revealing Moth Worm and Pebble Boy)MOTH WORM:
Steadying-on on the Cool Flat Grass, beneath the fast brass fuel in the sky, the partisans and artisans by their biscuit ministries and watering cans, live onward in their pullovers and real days, from day to material day. And in a way, in crosslegged breeches, the Smokers and Poets and Haggard Preachers, with gags and notes and speeches, they set fire to their Admiral-cigarettes, on the Blunt and antique beaches.PEBBLE BOY:
And while reading their Atomic Bullet Comics and indeed play acting their erotic farm kicks, the Bandmaster and Showcaster sip silently on the last of their Salamander-tea, across from the florist, toy, pet and book shop.MOTH WORM:
Behind winter-time windows and moss that grows, old girls and similar ladies with plastic hair and war-time prose, play rummy and simply smell of fragrant rose and coffee as drunkenly to their ivory radios they hum, waiting for their linoleum suppers and their hubbies to arrive back from the circus or chemist, where on purpose they must be a part of the arena mist.PEBBLE BOY:
And lounging and commenting all day on their hot-lotiontoddies, the Conversationalists and Lingerie Parachutists, with their reading room pleasantry and hobbies, mention and list not only their love of Liquorice-wheat and peasantry, but of laughing sickness, milestones and the fee.WEED WARMER: And with a lot of velvet and vigour, the Pot Purring Sopranos and all but bigger shows, carry on and on and on. (Curtain falls) ACT TWO (Curtain lifts and a spotlight falls onto Showcaster and Bandmaster)SHOWCASTER: I say, what is there to do about these so-called Constables and their unstable ways?BANDMASTER:
Collect them dutifully of course, as for all we know they could be a well turned out Band of Men, smart at heart and unspoken in their solid uniforms.SHOWCASTER:
Yes I must admit, things certainly are lasting for the good, like old brown ink and ticket stubs, match books and the story of sand.BANDMASTER: Yes, really, admission is something widely suitable.SHOWCASTER: Would you favour another Ling?BANDMASTER: Why yes grandfather.SHOWCASTER: Oh stop it.BANDMASTER:
We shall work and work at that (Bandmaster holds out the Ling) creating legends from the tip-ends of our hats, to the ship-shape of our shoes. There is confusing weather and calm conclusion. I love it.(Spotlight fades off Showcaster and Bandmaster) (Enter Peach-Wort)PEACH-WORT:
Trol-lop-tra-la-loo listen to my hoo, troI-lop-tra-la-loo it is for you and you and you: He loves the taste more than ever, as He sits in the study parlour clever, assembled amongst mantis pants and poplin coats, rum and tea and Reefer-boats. And here where service is always with a smile, one can taste and laugh the teapots porcelain and Green-rum tots poured still into the brain.(A dog howls in the background)PEACH-WORT: My Masters voice, why, why, why-yes, I must be off and a day, yes off to the cafe studio of thought. (Exit Peach-Wort)NEWS ANNOUNCER: (Heard in background) We now cross over briefly to our news banquet. (Enter Radio Speaker)RADIO SPEAKER:
Leaving the Old Brown House, I proceeded down Rookery Street with its spooky smells of wet shadows and Burningwheat. In passing and in passing I noticed I became subject to numerous whispering windows and humorous whistling tones, that fast began to have effect on me. I was not alone and then and then I knew no one could save me, not even Villains with well crafted tobacco and suede filters, as I felt myself having back to go , for my fill and stir of complete insanity(Exit Radio Speaker and Enter News Announcer) NEWS ANNOUNCER:
It is narrated: in the community of No Fate, that a Man ahead of his state of mind, was once witnessed smoking hectic batches of Bind, from Romantic-patches kept in his back garden; and it is told-on, that with this eavesdrop came the tackle of conducting with a vinyl crackle in the backdrop, some dialogue from the Man; and as it so goes, in response to the Interviewer’s whereabouts, the Man had this to comment:(Enter Man)MAN: My insanity is filled with insanity and to talk to you would only verify what I have already said. (Exit Man)NEWS ANNOUNCER: And that at last bring us to the end of this broadcast. (Curtain falls) ACT THREE (Curtain falls) (Enter Fish-Lop and Vo-Viem)FISH-LOP:
Look to it then dear mister,
For she is not gone
And as much as you miss her,
You should know she was the one And only one
To do with your quaint nonsense
And that faint whisker of a sweet sadness.
Magical moments lost
My best friend
O the mystical memories run fast Without end.
O playmate of wildness
Help me help you rest,
Help me help you to your rest,
O help me the rest of this helpless way Rest, rest, rest.
Buried, buried, buried, buried, buried Buried to contrive a surviving idiom, In this surface scary iron dome. Buried and blue as an ocean seed, Buried Buried Buried.
Standing on their kingly chairs and working on their Matchtans, the Air-sottaire and Madman catch up on their airy affairs and plans, whilst lurking with elephant smiles, into an old high standard, elegant of style.MR HAT STAND:
And rolling rolling rolling like silent movies, the Melo dramatic Poets and Devil-Damned Crooks move about with violent ease, as they owe it to their dream in books, of victories victory victory.(A spotlight falls onto Morning Glory and Cosmos sitting in background)MORNING GLORY: Well, we definitely were not expecting them for two months onward, were we?COSMOS: Well you know those Old-fires.MORNING GLORY: Yes, a surprise isn’t it.COSMOS AND MORNING GLORY: (Together) Ha, ha, ha, ha ... (The spotlight fades off Morning Glory and Cosmos)TROLLEY-TEETH:
It has been found out in the song and dance rooms, that doting sets of Guests, existing by chance of bloom on the company of floating carpets, have been paying great attention to the detail in the neat and the smart and the existence of a fail-safe fleeting part, in time immemorial.MR HAT STAND:
Smelling quite like naphthalene and paraffin, the dust lively floorboards beneath their feet creek, as slowly and significantly with sleek posture, while smoking only for taste, the guests move up the stairway, in their smooth and laced behaviour.TROLLEY-TEETH:
And well within their cooking minds and sanitary corridors, the Candidates and Kings of tomorrow’s doors, carry on and on and on.(Curtain falls) THE END
Sweet and homed in the great domed dining room, in the company of my inseparable pipe and its indispensable fire, I pine and swear pop, while my thoughts cavort the play streets that never stop.
INTERIM: Puffing on their brass And strangling their strings The mad band made their Music move.RATAIN:
Seated in the blue-grey mist of an electric tomato fist, Listern elects to ponder on the distance of his stability, as the days of dandelions, green bottles and red-tiled roofs are once again upon and in.
INTERIM: They added to their collection The unselfconscious entertainment Which reigned supreme before Their very eyes, pinning it to Their lapels.FALSE-IVORY:
Leaking from a hollow window, a certain music flows, speaking its noise, as dreamier and lustier it employs the trust of its teeming listeners, who grow.LISTERN:
All that is written, In all that has bitten,
What a slender stone,
That is precious can chew, Shall remain the earth, the earth, And the dew.
From his blazing house, Listern leaves to laze and louse with the local flavour, passing the road menders and those with a flair for the seven-day wonder that is life. Trifling on, Listern passes the palaces and terraces, the non-sobriety stalls and the fun and variety halls. He sees the linen kicking mistresses and chins resting on fists - the fat beer - the over crowded ashtrays and the flat-real world of the seer, as he turns in at an antique store for a peep.INDIAN RUBBER: Listern my son, may I be of service to you on this fine day?LISTERN: Not really, the way it is, is just fine.INDIAN RUBBER: Just dropped in then, for a look hey.LISTERN: Yesss, to peruse the wondrous-ridiculous paraphernalia you have here.INDIAN RUBBER: O, I say, no matter what you think, I am not ready to lose my share for no small thought of failure.LISTERN: Yesss, these odds do serve to excite the imagination and its continent. You could say, that I have married the ages and in that I am quite as content as a mudbee.LISTERN: Oh tell me, you wouldn’t still happen to have in stock some Hills In Sunlight, would you?INDIAN RUBBER:
You know, I just might (Indian Rubber disappears behind the counter & reappears) There (Indian Rubber puts item on counter) You know what the funny thing is, it has been a dusty while since anyone has asked for this particular supply, queer isn’t it.LISTERN: Yes, strangely. Be it that antiquity is the youth of the world, it still collects dust and an old popularity.INDIAN RUBBER: Yes, hmmm (smiling).LISTERN: How much does it come to then?INDIAN RUBBER: Nothing, it’s yours.LISTERN: No, I couldn’t possibly... No I insist, you must take it, go on, it’s your prize.LISTERN: My prize? Belonging to what tournament?INDIAN RUBBER: The tournament & event of simply staying true & living the dream - quick now, take it with you, there is no time to lose.LISTERN: Thank you, I have to be leaving (Listern grabs the article off the counter, hurrying out the store)INDIAN RUBBER: So long. (end) ACT TWO WHERE EVERYBODY GOES AND LITTLE STORIESRATAIN:
Over hill and dale on the split shale stones, Listern dashes head over heels, holding onto the article as if it were a Grail, quickly diving into a shady unknown alley.LISTERN:
(Raises article to the sky) Easy to look at. (Lowers article to lips) Easy to take. (Swallows contents of article) Easy to endeavour. (Throws article, smashing it against a wall)
INTERIM: The colour and noise Of the war souvenirs Was much like that Of peroxide blondes With bright red lips.FALSE-IVORY:
Flourishing in an endless succession of fun and fire, the motionless passengers untied from tier, light up in their elegant smoking rooms, surrounded by subdued lights and soft music.
INTERIM: In garden and vinery The days spent, Are delighted with Existence and where It went.FALSE-IVORY:
Smoothly humming while making summing tracks, Listern kites and glides to the bright outback, to slide and chat-slow with the crowded conglomerations in the downstairs rooms and on the paved patios.PLUM CHEEK: I bet you would like to join me? (Offers Listern to swing some Rolled-Yarn)LISTERN: If not for comfort, then definitely for some time with something special.PLUM CHEEK: (Plum Cheek lights-up for Listern and himself, holding up the lit Yarn) The sphere.LISTERN: I beg your pardon.PLUM CHEEK: This here means a lot to me. Yes, indeedy there is nothing like a good smoke and a wonderful man to share it with.LISTERN: It’s the full glorious morning. (Listern nods) That is what it is.PLUM CHEEK: Ha, no, it is the epic flight. (Shouts) Take-off! LISTERN:
We are nothing but streamers On the tail-ends of dreams, Whipping ourselves in the Beaded wind,
In a race to be airborne And torn from the sky.
In a grand way to travel, unravelling his thoughts and destinations, Listern arrives at a gravelled path, beaten in the best of notions to a heated club. Ordering a ready-to-wear-drink, Listern observes the flamboyant and enthusiastic fashions, the knee lengths socks, the enormous hats, the embroidered waistcoats, the lustrous hair, the sweater girls and the enamelled skin, as each in their continuing sagas, experience their delights on a sensual level.
INTERIM: The head hugging
Scent of lavender
Drifted through the
Rooms with an
Astonishing new freedom.
With arms tightly joined and bodies closely pressed, Lunary and Listern walk off into the comforting moon, resting in a quiet spot, making massive love and sounding flaming moans, under God and eternity.THE END

Moving in such an ecstasy:
Rich to die with no pain, Soft names run under My skin.
Fed on an
The Emperor’s magic Encases me,
In bits teachable
I blab in anaesthetics, Pure aesthetics ...
It is easy to get lost under
The floorboards of this old house, As no one bothers me,
For I am the only one who knows How things work, here.
The mouth moves,
The tongue waggles, But no sense comes out.
We have no country, But the hope of a New country.
God, take this, our all. This is the voice of The blood that sings:Long live the Revolution of the Mind.
We are young
Living in our dawn,
All things have their time,
So let the earth warm with my battled hot foe, For I am open like a wound,
Because I clutch the soul
When I sing:
- On the vert fields
Over the feather fantastic ground, I featured with others.
We thawed in the Spartan sun,
Knowing that it doesn’t get any much better.
- Stone dream: A tomb
for the Poet
A ruffian den,
which the Poet when
he enters, must
swallow the homely comet of negator dust
and like an
overloaded tart, the Poet
in his realm,
Totally off his tits,
barking up the walls in a thrilled oaf fit,
hesitant voice of daily thought, as part of a great poetic sport.
- Collected in a long-established
Hell, with indulgent acts that
We live with no aim,
Blinded by the half-light
And kept down with deep hearts,
From a stowed readiness, in the blood sea sky.
- Dark and dun
spark and sun;
the paths and landmarks well run.
Force the planets from the sky and Penetrate the most wanted: Dead or
Alive you’re coming with me.
A deathless voice, made to praise God, in all its rabid jealousy, curses over & over.
I a sinful man
sit on the steps
of the Eternal Blue Sky, unchanged by
sufferings, time or death.
- To sink in slothful sin
in necromantic night, I crossed the distant
taxing my mind and might, to aid my arrogant
art and sight.
- Fooled by the enemies of
Man into taking the bait,
I am left poor,
with the humps of a rich man on my back.
Such ornament extreme;
but the prompt vision fades
and I am left broad and cold,
locked outside the shapeless walls,
with the many other pigs, killed in their sleep.
- Fierce riders,
the continued thunder undulates over the black clouds; which mushroom in the distance,
Highborn heads of warlock fame, we speak out from the drowsy page. We are the readers dream
And like a powerful spell we grow,
we establish ourselves in the readers subconscious, we cornerstone ourselves in the strong hold of their heart, mind, spirit & deeds.
We break the stone tablet of Ten Commandments and pull it all off, with our own characterisations and improvisations. Indulgence, instead of abstinence.Blessed are those beyond good and evil, for they shall ride the whirlwind. - Decaying on oblivions stream, the fantasy tames my heart.
but my danger is voluntary, my pattern a lingering disease and painful cure.
- Rare merchandise of precious device: weave a price of orange silk,
this fresh germ in its course,
My seal-stamped head:
a juvenile ruin:

A leader and friend,
bloodily and boldly
you interpret the Separate Side.
You have come from Africa

Double damnation, double divinity,
in ordeal filth
I move through the sloping sea.
Dark and gigantic
on the river deep,
into chasm and cavern I move with strobing speed:
the trance of wonder
winding my head down to lawn on the musical air, sprinkling, reigning, lashing, steady-rocking me into new changes
and new glories
full of love and skill sweet and overflowing, as I, high on horns, embrace
The Eagles Rite
And put an end to the black clad son of
bothering tough days.
Troops of geometry and ladies of whom to laurels sing
Smuggle rare gems and tithes over treacherous trails,
back into my custody,
And help my planet march
the brain of the dogma hoarded moron to the firing line
And help me stand alone,
as a culmination of
the asserted idea sown.
And like him; always without faith, I fall - because I let sins babe chat with ardent gusto & tongued artsinstead of hearing-out Christ and his Ghost who have nothing for me but good news: Absorbing, though yet still only a sedate jealously. LADY LOVE

Do you think of me with self-anatomy? Are you lonely when I am in secret?Self-created woman, my best mind, I am mad beyond all doubt for you. Circular motion, contaminating mist, Eat my flesh and damp cells,

His rural head pulled back by a muscled neck, rests on the brim of the sky. An alchemy roll-up drools from the corner of his powerful lips, as like an Alexandrian planet or a bust in taut torment, he occupies his own space, hovering like a word that has not yet found its meaning - waiting to pronounce his mind.
Alongside the diameter of blue, the flare falls and the worship of it closes. Out of ancient carvings and significant structures, paintings and monuments, the double darkness stories its archetypal voice, into the new star of the new century, where again a famed madness, copied over from the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks & Romans, is heard and acted out in the attitude of the raving damned.
The sun - the moon - the day - the night - the whole part, on this side of our time, is a lesson of the world we live in and a grand restart. It is good to be around in these contagious times. Take notes and paint - take photographs and create. Sing and perform. Capture your generation and be true to its voice.

Up a tower of one million steps we rested and from the summit gazed over the immensity of the desert.
We watched wave after wave, the flocks pass towards new pastures; black goats and sheep were followed by their shepherds, who walked like kings.At noon the wandering tribe passed and the desert became silent. The wind swept unrestrained over the plain and the sands of the forefathers crumbled under our feet.

And the galaxy turns. Boiling dust-rock,
Under the vertical sun, Prevails with frost,

A magnificent grandeur
And ghostly beauty, In a state,
Of inconceivable cold, It rests quite dead,
But so alive.
All alone with her, amongst the multitude of dull people, she permits me to think for an instant of the over-florid dreams of a life with her.As Lord of Heat, my stratosphere is now set in place. THE SPRAWLING LION
Into the Valley of Idols and down six hundred and sixty six stone steps, in an agony of suspense, hardly able to believe my eyes, I entered the first doorway, then the second and the third and finally into the fourth doorway I went with great reverence.
The candle held in my trembling hand flickered, as hit by a warm air and then by strange shapes that loomed out of the darkness, I pushed-on into the hideaway.
Inside the creepy structure, fierce brushstrokes covered the walls and the ceiling in a self-taught frenzy, of what seemed like a mural, painted from a clearly psychotic & phantastic mind. Over in one corner on a table, laid books about art & medicine and on a chair, which seemed alive like a strange creature, sat a skull, comforted by a big black raven’s feather. On the far end of the room, stood what looked like an altar, chiselled out of harlequin opal rock, with three distinctive objects on top.
And so, this is how I managed to come to discover the Voodoo Scrolls, the Poets Dagger and the Sorcerers Jar; together all-powerful devices, found forgotten in the maw of the Delta Rift Chamber.
Now The Poets Dagger, with its gold hilt inlaid with various gemstones, when held is of a comfortable wielding weight and with a twelve inch blade cut from pure green jade, it is nevertheless a smooth doubled edged, sharp ceremonial tool and a deadly weapon if treasured in the wrong hands.
The Sorcerers Jar, with its spiral motifs painted on, is comprised of an ancient ceramic, once baked in the fires of old, when men lived over two hundred years in age and when things took time to grow; basically when all was well in the world and less distracted. Inside the sacred jar, is a content to be used sparingly, only to be taken for passage rites and special initiations: a content comprised of an ergot extract, which brings on powerful visions and allows the user to turn old knowledge into fresh advise.
The Voodoo Scrolls, four of them, carefully bound in a shroud, spun from the silk of four different types of deadly poisonous spiders, holds the secret voodoo texts, that existed from a time before The Great Fall of Mans Dream; before he gave into the reality others made for him. The texts written in the juice of a crushed extinct flower, named ‘The Sprawling Lion’ can be read only, when a special ceremony is performed, in order to obtain the message from the invisible text.
The ceremony goes along these lines. After having imbibed the ergot extract and after a good hour of waiting for the potion to start effecting behaviour and character, blood then needs to be drawn from the main-participant, by using the jade bladed Poets Dagger. Then with the blood still on the dagger blade, the dagger needs to be plunged into the heart of a living human specimen. The letters from the passages that the four Voodoo Scrolls contain, will then be made visible and out from the pages, the secret words inscribed in the colour of a deep fiery purple, may be recited.
Take Note: the day after the incantation & ritual has been completed, the main-participant will at first have a feeling of complete loss & disorientation and will find it difficult to fit into old routines. This is expected and for this the main-participant should refrain from interaction with friends, or family until they have fully grasped the full extent, of what lies ahead of them.
For some this ritual may lead to irrational behaviour afterwards, followed by insanity, this is due to the mind breaking down, as a result of the person knowing that their former self can and never will be rekindled; but for the true warrior spirit & evolutionary being, these steps are an essential and integral part, of rising above the meat, to associate with the stars.the end

‘Pack up your fat station boy.’ Is the command, as Monseigneur Bastardy with an alien curled up in his brain, returns to Urth - the words carried over from the Separate-Side, pulsing in his thoughts the motto:
POWER TO THE PEOPLE AND THE POETS THEY INVENT.
Landing in his favourite uniform, the dandy Bastardy hunts for his farewell, in a life set-up for a polished poet, with nothing more but memoir and poem aiming down at his strange energy: freedom.FOUR
Do you have love for the prey eerie palace, where the Birds of Paradise flock around the nomadic pasture, in the chamber massive and continuous.Do you tourist the rooms and doorways, obscure places and nod with satisfaction. If not go deeper. See moustaches and grins as you are swept up in a dance, surrounded by a crowd of naked young girls. Festival climax or ancient religion?
And you convert, increasing your complications, lessened by the circle of dancers and dragon-like embers, adding to the joyous chaos.And with fondness to wine, ancestors and graveyards, the goat ritual tribes a population to furniture at your celebration hooves.
And you are infidel and cousin, neighbour and outlaw, beckoned and offered baskets of berries, nuts and dried fruit in the harvest of the glowing spirit.
And as a slave, block-by-block you entertain the gods, playing a harsh journey, building up structure and evidence of your creative capture.
And it is all sunlight and turquoise, corn and stone as galaxies import plumage to help you fly further, into dark fields of ingenious darker destinies.

And as it is that stubborn fools finally always reach the top and the shortcomings of great men, is the starting point to building cult status, then indeed unable to stop, always wanting to fight the lion, great men prone to flying, they dare that awakening to come out of Orion.ATOMIC BULLET ALCHEMIST:

With a die-hardy fever and clammy daisy hands, El Senor Eloquence moved hazy like the soft frolic of a deathbed Caesar. Smouldering his smooching body into every smoky dive and flesh hole, one after the next, he would always stumble out alive and whole, only to plummet himself back into the void, until there was an altercation to the script.BORDERING ON INSANITY:
So hopeless was he by the end of the night, that he couldn’t walk straight, or talk great and that is how he loved to be left, in a prim and proper mess; beaten-up by his own will and debauched by life.DEVIANT BEHAVIOUR:
Lingual in his dress, like a fine recital, El Senor Eloquence: a fight till the very end, would address all life forms, paying them all the same courtesy, of a trip through his ignited imagination.BORDERING ON INSANITY:
Weak from the spirit he carried, he lugged with him a rich carpet bag, stuffed with a zoo of pills; firing liquor; imported cigars; LSD & XTC; a deck of cards; a dead watch; a jar of magic-mushrooms; a brick of Malawi-gold; a bank bag of Transkei-red; letters from his one and only love; a Japanese newspaper and orders to proceed.DEVIANT BEHAVIOUR:
Into the back room, with a buoyant libation in one hand, a fine piece of pussy cupped in the other and a big fat cigar clenched between smiling teeth, El Senor Eloquence would with a clairvoyant air and an above-average flair, seek non-other than the appealing facets in others and the tacit darkness within.SENOR ELOQUENCE: Don’t be sorry, just be yourself. FLAIRDRAM:
Over the intercom, the dusty voice of the sobbing aviator reads from the pencilled sheets of paper, torn from a pocket book, breaking the news in poetry:DUSK: I always thought the wine I gave, would sell out first; before the blood of an ordinary song, but I was wrong.DRAM: The self-exploration: the foolishness. The expression: the madness.DUSK: Proverb hell, proverb wisdom, Show and tell the road to capacities stardom.DRAM:

Spreading her legs, she lowers her mantle of oblivion over him, murmuring as she whets his rigid member, rubbing in and out of her.AURORA:
Going straight to his brain, as the lava runs through his veins, she pushes his senses, his palms scorching her thighs with their fever-heat.AMBROSE: Her rosy cheeks, her glowing eyes, her craving breath, such delicious feeling fills her, as he penetrates the secret.AURORA: In a rapture of their own, their passion waxes, with his inflamed candle, gleaming within her hot lantern.AMBROSE:
She gazes at him with a pleading glaze in her eyes; the power of his unbroken stride frightening her, but in the erotomania of the moment, both keep hungry almost burstingout, keeping it painfully-sweet, as she, dancing with a shimmer in her lip and a shudder in her body, she lets out a piercing shriek, as the phantasm vanishes, and she falls to earth, back into the arms of her inspiring lover.SONJAGROG:

And as it turned out into a serious life of pubic hair and synthetic inventions, Sonja the carnal-girl, adopted a tempestuous super-reality to be her cosmos.GLORIA:
Playful child, so much braver in her youth than the rest of us, oh Sonja where did you go. I recall that you enjoyed it-all rather more oddly, than we did. Oh Sonja, oh girl, oh girl, oh girl.GROG:
Portrait of a misty miss in distress: Sonja, you were master of the playful spirit, on the stage of centuries of ghosts, all called in your name. Sonja, recreate us savagely and distort.BOWN:
She was an angle-heart, that is all, an angel heart. She was cheerful, yet realistic, conventional, yet abstract, impressive, yet eliminated by her beauty, which we all saw as celestial.GROG:
In the early days, spending much of her time, searching for her place in life, it became an aeon of strains and tensions, wild and menacing; and predicting her own fate, at the advent of her life, she described what her life was to be:A universe of yearning, for something misplaced.MAY:
A hypersensitive darling, with a ballet of delusions in her wonderful head, Sonja my light hearted harlequin, I miss telling you, how much I really love you; Sonja you were always the one.ATLAS RAT HOLE - ATLAS APPLE
And so flags away;
I am throwing down the dice With Blood on its Dots,
To watch the Forked Tongue rise, Baptizing the square seas
In galactic maps,
And the soft motion
Of bizarre art,
Illustrated within the blood, That churns in the Tribal Climax.
Master of beautiful things limited; man of the boyish dream; amateur of the halo, at the top of an intense-Asia, you bore and score; the parabolas in my brains wail.The sureness of touch is prime. The lidded gaze, sleeping the sleepless sleep. VENOMOUS LAERTES Venomous loose sufferer, it may be death, but still what is your weapon?
We are dead,
drowned in your work, our vital-reddening having fed the hanging fang.
There is something within us: it is not madness, but perhaps a bodiless creation, perhaps our pulse keeping time, perhaps the fighting soul of intricacy, perhaps a possession or perhaps nothing but madness.
We are dead,
our breath has been said; eaten by worms, our innocent past that we murdered has been avenged by a Holy Bible anger, which has now brought all our imperfections down, upon our Canopy of Pleasure.
We are dead,
having lived a full life in dangerous poetical glory. The blue murder on the highway, having turned our mind blown day, out onto the nether way, open to any road.
Everything new that passed, no matter how peculiar, we found familiarity within - which proved to us that the fight of our lives was still on.
I recall that it was our songs, the songs of free men, enduring the death of their fellow companions, that became our breath, as we piled on the memory and knowing that we live not for the dried earth, but for the victory of those who have died - who are strong enough to remain noble in our minds.And next to me, a poet scratched with red brick, on a white wall:
AS DESPERATE AS THIS BLUE ONION IS, WE MUST REMAIN THE DAUGHTERS AND SONS BORNE OF LOVING CIRCLES.Life is the bitch and we are merely the cool cats, roaming in the glitch. LIFE ACCOUNT Birth is such a funny thing, as is death, which is so peculiar.
And the cat stalked like a flightless hawk, into the Rosetta night, never to be seen again, never to return to the Island. Born by emotion, we caught a vivid bus ride, to the sunken space of conception and melting arctic.
By means of classical objects; aberrations; mementos; halation’s; the Great War; the swans reach in the pain of a nocturne; a good outfit to die in; dementia; comic sorcery; odd odes; space travel fare; loss; playful and candid binges; asphyxiating anxiety; barren paranoia; fruitful terror; breathtaking gardens; swampy pools; blowing leaves; the smell of stale bedrooms; subconscious paint; the beaten face of death; philosophic confessions and smoking in the rain, we caroused the line of life.
And as a person must eat to be who they are, we sat down at duration’s table, in front of champion fish; lobotomy bacon; rhinoceros-lipped peaches; climaxed potatoes; grey cabbage; cracked sugar; bourbon red coffee; sock juice vodka; creamy centred delights; motor oil fudge and rolled herbicide, while in our lapels shone a dead rose, as we validated and remained to die by our adipose.MEAT AND DRINK ON THE SAME TREE Running The Tongue up onto her filleted pallet and snuffing The Nose in amongst her stinky boobs, the light is turned out.
Her face disappears, all except for a wet shine in her eyes. Like onion mixed with fish saliva, the whiff of her groin is caught, as The Tongue is shoved into her sack of orgasms and rippling colours.
Moaning like an old toothless dog, with worms and fleabites on its balls, she tenses and releases.
Rasping The Taste Buds over her spare mouth, her little mound of burning ice cream, becomes thicker and raised with excitement, as all in one moment, unable to hold back her beauty, she pours out her delightful liquid;
He was the direct image of talent without a master, genius without a victim, as he sat in the candle shifting room: ironic and ordinary, yet obscene and painfully psychological in his selfimposed intensity.
But, through all the attachments of second-thought placed on him, was reincarnated the virtuous air of purpose, which seemed to gush from the gash-like smirk on his face & a telling look that coolly shouted out:“I am the greatest!”
But living for living sake, is enough to piss any gambling man off. No, for him there had to be a reason, a winning reason why the mission to launch him into existence was not aborted by the gods. And so for the question that haunts many, who may have misgivings about their very own existence:
Are we here for a special reason, or is it our duty to enforce our own special grounds on why we do exist & why we are indispensable.
Yes! There is an undertaking to fulfil & we have to fight hard at making it a life, that is a scintillating find - a life worthy of research & reckoning - a bomb of big heart.
And so ... The night approached restlessness. Cats straggled over the roofs of houses. Stars chirruped unremittingly. Sex flung moans, from that of brutes and morsels. Dogs oafed to the subsonics. And well under the breaking shell of morning, he wrote frightfully in unison to the beckoning blood-pure song of the early bird. And to this, frantic like a vampire terrified of the ever-encroaching light, he threw down his pen; to sag in syrupy shuteye and black vomit dream ...LOBSTER Detestable Man is comprised of slick fiction.
His mentality twirls with the invaluable compendium of decadence & deviance; conquest; terrible deaths; blind chasing lust; sexy women; heroes; sensational spectacles; egos and childish sentiment,While his thermometer penis forages the atmosphere for any kind of hotness. The detestable man in wedlock with risk and its perennial hemlock, is like a painted battle, Always in the place where war stands. THE END

Be it that you love your friend as your closest enemy and hate your enemy as your closest friend, but when worshipping, recognize that it is the fault of some gods, that in their feet are their ears, so be it that you shout at the gods, instead of having to bow down, like a grovelling dog.TRUMPET NARCISSUS: And fathomed in lifes naked scope, the subversive neck, reposes from a cursive rope. FROM HERE TO THE END OF MAKING BOOKS
This is not a well-written tragedy by a tragic spectator - no - it is a natural explanation of independent nerves, or as a tragic prince once put it: w-o-r-d-s.
Typing on a typewriter of dry ice, the poet a writer of unhealthy songs, in a life of wry vice, he extracts the fools gold between the hammer and the anvil, working on the payroll of the devil, publishing the rebellious rains of secret language.
‘Immoral immortal love, accompany the stranger in our midst, on his revels, that he may improve his education by taking part in the festivals of the Gods and with their help, may he attain the pleasurable sense of harmony, in his search for his cry’s song and rhythm in his search for his movement’s dance.’
And when the big pin drops in onto your silence and paranoia, when the pattern is unchanging and when the mind drags your soul into confusion - return into yourself, into the other world: the region of purity and immortality - into the state of wisdom & serenity.PROEM
He glided with languid and powerful strides, the silver coins in his pocket, making the sound of steel-spurs, illustrating the image of the Revenant Rider, well chosen by a past unborn. In his hand he kept a note book, which within was written words wailing: love; a young man’s anger; the neon carvings of drugs; creed; masks of passport; excellent wishes and totem pictures, convoking the ethnic earth to oversee.
Under the yawning of the night and the dawning of the light, the canopy pterodactyls would shelter him, circling the thermals high above.A poor cursed life, he walked the earth alone, mortgaging his soul, for several moments of freedom. What is a poem, but the signature of a name. GOD SENDS MEAT, BUT THE DEVIL SENDS COOKS
At last, on this one beautiful day, The boat is lowered and leased, As away go the skeleton crew, On their first practical share of The wide-open ocean feast.
On the weather beaten deck,
The ancient pot-pipe is kept in check,
The flames of which are fed with cannabis-grip, Blazing brilliantly, throwing a big glare over all The ship.
And dealing in pawnshop doctrine, the thirteen Corpses pass-on in mutilated jargon,
Their comedy crowned in a tone shady & sullen.
And in an unlimited indulgence of debauchery, Limply happy, the lovable lazy
They convulse in their dying purity,
As out of the primeval deep,
They awaken to the blessed bewitching song of Sirens, Beckoning them into a world of dirt & sex-slavery And stabbing the sails into the mazarine, off onto more exploits on the flat blue marine
The Boat, rigged with impromptu
On an ocean voyage
Developing strange faculties
In each jolly sailor,
It is what has become to be
A boy’s tailored experience,
With his dead crewmen who salute him as their Captain Of the stout sober sea.
The earliest known evidence of the Stone Age was in Autumn, when the poet wrote out his heart in open poems: scrawled down & crowned and well prescribed; high up in his signal tower.
The earliest known evidence of the Bronze Age was in Spring, when the poet did sit in composition of the exit, which beat within the karmic thud.
The earliest known evidence of the Golden Age, was when ahead of all other poets, whipping the road and forcing the end, a slave to freedom, the poet escaped the rut of love, off the highroad and onto the open road, diluted by the wilderness sun and the mad-cool heroics by the go-devil spun.AMBER WELL ONE
Reading the little book, brought Life Before his eyes very clearly,
Taking his remembrance back, to the day When he had seen it all,
Dancing in the early morning sunshine, On the green, with its back against the wall. His Life had been so beautiful in its youth And innocence
And so pathetic in its attempts
That all he had wanted,
Was to pick it up in his arms And take it into some bejewelled And spellbinding pit;Which he did. TWO
And the Rebel Minister, with triggered-clutch, a kicked-downpedal and dust for tyre tracks, he revs his engine and speeds out of the church grounds and looks into his rear-view mirror at the steeple crucifix, which is nothing to him but a telephone pole, with its communication lines cut.
And with its vertical grill grinning, the big metal car guns along the black streak, swaying with a heavy hipped momentum, like a hard-bodied dancer, leading one to the hole in the wall; and so through the hole with cool and focused steering, the Rebel Minister clock-wises the radio knob.
An announcement juts out: ‘News flash - Today, a wild madman left a congregation dumb struck, when delivering a message entitled: “The One and Only Truth” - we now return to our regular transmission, of out of this world music.’
And the Rebel Minister, reaching into his glove compartment, he pulls out a rag to wipe the expression of shatter-proof resistance on his face, as he turns up the volume, and leans his elbow out the window, breathing in a fresh new air, as he pulls up into the church grounds, of the congregation next on his hit list.

At the surrender of The Ceremony of The Mind, Our stay here is very welcome.
See their dark ships,
On the rowdy crowd of wet salt, Travellers moving home,
Held back by the bell and the bolt.
See them capsize off the decks,
Into the wet flame of the Mediterranean black, Voyagers on trial,
Proven by the weight of their Pilgrim-sack.
See them pray thanks on the shores of sight, Men of muse once sheer
Men of passion once clear,
Now ready to receive the light.
The World, where
Drink the drink of The Incas,
Iridescent trip along the lane of summer’s spring, I by your opiated moon & sun
In this destruction of origin,

Fighting for a place in the bosom of the Atlas, The poet earned his Turban-crown, from the beaten Promethean prince of Asia.
Lifting the cause of the fearless, The paragon poet shoulders the world And as an enlightened despot,

Pursued by grief, we blot out our troubles, Engaged by marvellous medicines & soft voices in our romantic ears. At our head lies an open vision. At our feet lies the closed earth.IV
You cannot dissuade A man with a mission, or A man with a staff,
For in his way
He is excellent.
And as all poets are princes, By birthright
They are chosen
Dynamic auras bristle around glorified expressions, Beneath the absinthe stars of the charged country, Where ordinary people:

Woman I am so much in love with you,
Confidants exposed in each other’s arms, In the dance with the performance to explode, Lovers clipped in the thirsty calm of kisses,Together they banquet on each other’s carnal blisses. Beauty is the destiny of the goddess. the end
