Last Night They Came And Took


canvasses  manuscripts

typewriter  paint box

dictionary, (oddly common words underlined or written in the margins.)


ash tray  like a bulldog head
mouth still filled 

Marlboro butts  empty Norman Rockwell match books.


denim jacket faded  

shoulder torn  by a lawn mower,

pockets lined 

loose tobacco lint

  Goldsmiths Art Shop receipts

  napkin from The Russian Lady 

name of Bitkis written on the back

  and a business card for chair canning.


four real silk Japanese prints.

two exactly the same posters of Deborah Harry.


 sleeping bag he used for a bed.
chair he carved Africans into.
lamp he won at the carnival last year for getting two black targets with one shot.

they took

  they took

  they took.


and for me the one who loved him?






Rumours of King fishers, poem by pd lyons from darkness work in progress





Rumours of King Fishers.

can you ever begin anything at all?

never mind again

white walls

white linen

duvet pillows sheets

white lamp

white floor boards

radiator door


pale as milk


black  Japan lacquer

all night eyes

smooth long whisper

curve of ahh’s

to not call it ocean

that which we call ocean would be?

to not call it mind

that which we call mind would be?

to not call it I

that which we call I would be?

sometime ago angels

leapt up in summer time

yellow gold

all one

w/ human kind

of course looked like love at first

then became lust

by try as they must could never get off

though happily multiple

the women went nuts
