hmm…wordpress has taken out all the experimental spacing I just put in this…might look silly now…then again, might have looked considerably sillier before!

in this
ba-ba the elephant

I’ll just sit and
sink another noon day gin.

It’s not like I’ve a place with
parrots in-
a tropical tank to sink my teeth –
soak my
paraffin-ated shoulder fins.

This is probably
just the safest place to be:
like all the
deep sea creatures
you might ever like to meet.

a woolen penguin
dressed with felt and shiny feet,

a winged umbrella
hooked against a wooden seat.

The men over there are discussing Nirvana,
Arcade Fire and Books – that might impress the girl

they’re talking loudly over.

you may plug your bones
into the air waves

your skull’s a shell to pile up people
things you’d like keep for later –
see more clearly.
