pugilistic (2012)

a wonderful trade

behind the shade

all braded up

in branches

no one to trust

to incinerate combust

better than yourself self

better than yourself self

to be then put on a shelf

in a small vessel expensive

alive forever like a pharaoh

lucky and pensive.

art in motion

no sun-tan lotion

red yellow orange white

the sum of all things

the colours I see

as I sit in the tree

waiting for the fire to start loving me

wondering what’s wrong

but I knew it all along

try fry fight

live wire with fire

try fry fight

fight fire with fire

no burn marks no bone char no soot

no use crying no use crying

just dust the boots dust the suit

return and mingle

ransome and mingus

reed and morrissey

rye bread and metaphase
