Diverse Deeds on Wednesday

DIVERSE DEEDS : Wednesday 16th December
at Café Oto, 18-22 Ashwin Street, Dalston, E8 3DL.
Doors 7.30.

It's the Arthur Shilling Press takeover (or 'The Sporangiophores Quartet'): with Mendoza (aka linus slug), Michael Zand, myself & "the voice of Harry Godwin". Angela Gardner's getting in on it too. My guitar & loop pedal will be making a brief guest appearance, as I attempt musical sonneteering.

I'm told more freak lung's will be available, I'll be attempting to flog my last copy/ies of Tauheed & Sporangiophores, aside some privately printed A6 copies of some of the sonnets (provided I privately print them).

Dear Jeff, hello, it is this same worn joke

Dear Sean, sorry, I have no date for you

for my energetic expenditure is alone around Hackney

walking the Kings’ land, Morning Herald in hand

& though I have slain crossbowmen in Sydney

further untitled fragment

Stumbling onto househeld comforts posted
by southern videographers
sculpt tapping to minor pleasant chaos,
intrigue siding application detailed within
glancing bliss fresh from potent youth. Nerve
tides delicate travel, offering instrumental sketches,
build tensile comfort
zonal & in parallel I approximately locked,
calming & televisual.

Their blurted fables, right? these
well-spaced interludes balance fascination
with disruptive discomfort, inducing cascades
in ethereal frames, appearing capital
& space, convect blank skies or
observe spiral fluorescence, I am scattered
to near harmonic sequences on sofas, word
in hand, questioning if thirty progressions
will quench, if a quart will perch upon you,
if either will stray from focused limbs
or through canting in float this narrative remains.

untitled fragment

this is very much from a work-in-progress longer poem, the first chunks of which Francis Kruk & yt communication are compiling with work from Harry Godwin, Michael Zand & Linus Slug.

* * * * *

Reach tendant kaleidoscope. Inert
pivot downtime for striplit escalation,
these greetings occur & adopt
global – timekept for social structure.
You, sweeping discomfort with
glances / expressive / (continuum
breaks to tone intensity)
clasp visual,
modernist lapse of shared passage
dances to tranquil spaces,
to gatherings, concluded
with customs of vague delight by disband.

Active insight, like chromographic runnings –
diethyl, handmade plates –
a soulsoaked synapse on behalf
of cyclic momenta, receptic heartstrung cadence
reason incident override by platform delving,
near seated sight dousing
& placid visual as I drop. A week
to crack on canvas – splint
nurse your tumble-dried sonata
if official declarations allowed
organelles, shatterproof, we’d walk, unabated
surveying intent through lone faculties

Barricades (#4)

Back in April, I was writing a sequence of poems called Barricades. I think I only wrote five, three of which aren't very good. I don't really know what will become of the sequence - the idea behind it is something I was throwing around heavily at the start of the year, though it has had some rest since. Below is #4 from the sequence...

* * * * *
Sing until throat
dry-hanging silence
stupidstupid misguise.
Tarnish day not of Charles
wrote through Sundays
archosauromorpha fatalities, automotive pilots
& homosapien like you.

Digestive deterrence blamed (culture) this
operator suggests curtailing, you clear
up without returning, you space
your shared personal publicity,
not or not fastened
optional. Faculties presenting –
the laughing sanity ableist
& laughing? Like carefree
having re-pieced my vase? Acronym.
Look nothing lakes
timekeeping, fucked at sunset
a boy cruises components
hands together
pesticide expiry
return ticket offered.


My debut chapbook, "Notes on Tauheed", is due from Harry Godwin's Arthur Shilling Press in the very near future.
It's a sequence of poems roughly on psychogeography, lightness & Grizzly Bear's second LP. It's entirely not on oneness with a higher power.

Calendar Mishap Semaphore

The guilt carriage situ.
Tapping ok without experience,
a plan, but... need.
I can show you but...
a BSc in ancient history

& age at which disappointments
duration is short-lived by lunch,
by fourteen a contingency
debating out development,
the movement school tour still
suggest another sort-of volunteer
outside "campus" lock community,
Queen's Park doesn't make it today
two faces without knowledge’s grey growth.

An icebreaker, stand, no, um, ums, or
end in debate. Emergence. Telephone
off oh. Pan vicinity barrister all on paper
eleven until forty-five at twelve,
any hand spanning utility until we move roads.

Yesterday afternoon diminishing precedence
a setting a half a face of a student
a harrowing modern metropolitan hunt
on the 29, not
the boy who would be,
crises culture developing the knife,
apparently un-cancelled if she knows
if she calls back
Clau-myself & cracking persuasive sale.

He was in distance,
he was already toured
wait on first intro-game applause,
a smoking action sketched, a musical
numbered quitting session peripherals,
bare-footed residence confusion Evan -
the conversing lack of idea, at Britannia Junction
d. d. nomination hopefully timescales,
I would be I know what immediacy workshop
dual point nine seconds, now
mind occupied from overhearing the commensurate
of something to sign off ok.

A feeling a carpet sex
softness stills utterly sublime,
blowing out of dog water

Assessment Pattern [final fragment]

Having delved into former relief patterns
I’ve come to understand the sinister bagging,
flail, waste cover daughtered in birthday
pass the guilds venom, third gravy independence
enroute telephone fear as gushing flaw grips toes,
you should probably drink more tea.
Quick turn check through curls, you

exponent with excursion, ladders in mixing.

Like said burial, educational resignation is of years
devote past, claw, museumproof on first flour
I have / technology / to avoid
stepping somewhere in London -
Philip is backing me developing
desperate optimism, you are fleeting
filthy sixties architecture you must be,
trowel something in acknowledgement

Assessment Pattern [fourth fragment]

The knowledge in your new era,
in ideals of mental indulgence, later
lighting in discontent, apparitions and possible fates
a disturbance unfulfils my scarlet perception.

Bragg diffracting at zone boundary, conduction
on odd. Severe delays. Divining modernity,
privilege & generations melt in cut price scorching;
he is in the vicinity – sharp shaven –
an elegantly grown pro. I am not thinking of him
am I not. Characteristic scattering
though lowered post-theory aperture.

Slow cracking audible, elective wrists knotted
for undecided witness. If she is held,
if she had looped her reminding rules,
a noted post-it room as an adult / sunglasses / scaffold for durational vectors / counter inquisition / even glad hanging still /
on diminished returns let the complex hold her later identity over resonance mixed-state
“these situations are not to be humoured” / slipping back / I have shed / pragmatic & radiate fear complex.

My devices are no longer capable of sweet distant chiming,
as day-drenching anonymous after-hours cast persons
to traffic trade. Salt nectar scale wired in later balancing
ever, ever the decision preventative brow hold.

* * * * *

The Glaswegian ripping off a Monty Python sketch

and an exponentially decreasing time-scale,
theoretical probability relationships have particular combinations

Assessment Pattern [third fragment]

Exhaustive whatever 3: self-subjected plague. The
agency age questionable, although
what the fuck were you thinking? Would guidance
have marked visible artefacts of able contribution?

The lantern cascade crossing back
to a delicate flat-brush, your magnificent easel
like coastal clutching delirious with unpronounced
allure / desire / light cranial kisses.
The wear of years knotting cognitives,
inappealing selection rules or you, flourishing
share my hand with summertime’s aqueous emerging.

* * * * *

(The make-shift academic shack, on
cleaving crystals, generate, (do) we (really)

I’m fucking someone whose possibly worth
dSdH/dt^2. Aware of the final carnage
accent to monarchic lability, confidence
is of not you, not the mole-hilled
orchard (disguised as a vinery).

The genetic epicentre – a household
peace’d resilience at lowered aggregation.

’08, a flash on June 6th

Assessment Pattern [second fragment]

Exhaustive predictions 1.
Diminishing decisions leafed fleeting Holborn
gardenias. Business. Popularity lessening lunch-hour
beauty in redbrick courting corporate reflection,

hot yard beverages, the potential of us / count

Trailings: a breed’s essence
untoxicated, the tarnished detachment taking
a physical form, rising heated exhaustive
second coffee tapping anxiety onto comfort,
strip exposition feared herds,
sun on castle index,

of past four dithering, Earthly concern condemned
from handsome foreground, “CROSS THE ROAD”
you may aswell pull a Malcolm Tucker. If Malcolm was
I’d bribe him to departmentalise the isochronic
prof. probably not note-worthy.

(A short pause of half-speed spinning
heads decoratively in 7/4 –
you collapse atop & laugh out calendar.
Attached soul-saver clasping, the cusp,
the inversion, elation coursing
your oceanic gaze).

A wash out. Slowly conjuring evening, the

temperate, condemned creative
dashing reduction, tear’d morning cease
I cannot bare you, I cannot allow,
the idealised fiction manoeuvres forgo

three ways I have no time
too collect questions how does that work?!

Bye for now x
