    the rain cold feet in cold boots is everyone out on a valentine date? The dog shits and she doesn’t even bother to stop long enough to bag it just keeps going and the video store guy gives her a lonely (but 80% best quality) bar of chocolate.

    little black dog, ears drooped with trepidation, you shake and shiver when those big bastard trucks thunder by. Come on, untuck that glorious tail! Ears point . Nose goes. Squirrel. No alarm now.

    Listen, what? O delight the light the heat the hot pop of poppy pods! Don’t they just fling themselves into the future, there’s no stopping them now. My neighbour will be picking them out of his teeth next summer, those bright bits of colour mucking up his perfect lawn.

    o god, let my heart be a vase. Fragrances bursting, over flowing spectrums crazy bright, dripping dipping down, drying falling fading full again. Always full, always full.

  • blackhat commented on the post, commit 8 years, 9 months ago

    I cannot commit myself to Thee.

    Thou art but one man in the cauldren of Men, one heart as in an echo of hearts, one mind out of Mind.

    To mine own self be true! to Thine own self be true! Thus do I commit myself.

    His sniff was disapproving and a bit too deep, as if it were to be his last breath. That gawdawful bum was coming on the bus again! Already hot and crammed and with his luck falling like dominoes all day, the smell of dried piss and vomit was sure to end up right in his […]

    She leaned into the window watching the little patch of fog growing and receding near her open mouth. “Goodbye,” she breathed, watching the soft edge of her sorrow spread and beg for just one more drawn and forgotten heart.

    It was early dawn when Charlotte came down the path dragging a bear cub by it’s head. Charlotte was 5, eyes of ocean blue, a mess of golden hair a halo in the morning light, a grin as wide as the sky. The bear was bawling it’s head off. “Look ma! A teddy bear, a […]

  • blackhat commented on the post, order 8 years, 9 months ago

    Order was everything. She’d fallen carefully in love, married well, had 2.5 children. In turn they too loved, married, bred. What then was this wreckage, this dismay, like a disarrayed train heaped in the pit of the night?

  • blackhat commented on the post, chaos 8 years, 9 months ago

    a chaos of sun-dripped poppies, happy heavy legged bees buzzing the honeyed air, the air itself a ripple of oceanic balm: my garden.

    I have carved the name of love into the waterways of my old home. Each fold of time speaks. Every cut is never ending.

    I will need to spike my minute with the word ‘fossil’ which i didn’t get to writing about yesterday. I am so spiked about it. And have time left. Uninspired?

    Poets. Painters. Writers. Artists. Photographers. Journalists. Storytellers. Liars all. Thank God for them, they are the only people who know how to tell the truth.

    then just be kind to your neighbour the same way you’d like your neighbour to be kind to you” And what do they do? Worship a dead man. No imagina­tion. SO peculiar. All I can say again is lord for give them for they know not what they do.

  • blackhat commented on the post, peculiar 8 years, 10 months ago

    I said to them, look within, and the kingdom of heaven is within, and repeat after me, I am the way, and you know, things like that, like, love one another and have a good time, and you know, be NICE for christ’s sake, and if you can’t remember anything at all then just be […]

  • blackhat commented on the post, velvet 8 years, 10 months ago

    The hard pink polish went on the wrinkled old toes smooth as velvet but the ladies honked like a row of cadillacs running down the bent black heads. “They’re so sweet aren’t they? Hard to understand but they do a good job.”

  • blackhat commented on the post, velvet 8 years, 10 months ago

    How could this toy bring such joy? Nothing but tears and tantrums, for days and nights on end. Nothing would settle her, no words reassure. Then, this little rabbit with a crooked nose and long velvety ears. A few hiccups later and my great grandmother’s smile was like the sun coming out over an un-named […]

    I hear, I smell, I tast the sea
    the rumpled noon-day sand is hot
    and burning brown
    my smooth
    and open skin

    o! come rushing in!
    roll all over me
