KNOCK OUT GAME
I want to see
that crucifix of blank pupils
feels pain
craving your pardon
followed by a moment of your time
would be catching skyline
which stalks behind a breath

with chapped intentions
as though exhaling gospel code
I walk my fists on either side of your head
walk through you as a clear air
invincible
hearing footsteps rainstorm
gives few more seconds
to adjust prosthesis of a prayer on the shoulder
and run (25th March 2014)

The “knockout game” is one of many names given by American news media to assaults in which, purportedly, one or more assailants attempt to knock out an unsuspecting victim, often with a single sucker punch, all for the amusement of the attacker(s) and their accomplice(s). Serious injuries and even deaths have been attributed to the “knockout game”. Some news sources report that there has been an escalation of such attacks in late 2013, and in some cases the attacker has been charged with a hate crime, while some politicians have been seeking new targeted legislation specifically against it. Liberal analysts claim that their conservative counterparts falsely promote a view that the “knockout game” trend is real and conservative analysts claim that the liberal media does not report on it due to the racial implications it may have.

DRINKER
inconsiderate as a bird
leaving droppings everywhere
his habit is
more or less after first sips
oblivion wakes under the tongue
to passionately reason that he could gulp it
yet holds to drink down
a result is always the same
few dense remorse for unpaid bills
accompanied by surprisingly found on a table
spare set of keys after she is gone
it deserves a toast
weeping leaves him wasted
Earl Grey day encounters hands
wrapped around empty bottle
that once knew what hold on to (11th April 2014)

KLEPTO
did I see it or only want to
something inside me lacked courage to die
my weakness filters adjectives
with particular emphasis on ‘un-‘
for instance untight

weakness forms a denial
a denial forms into an outbreak
where to become a rebel you can
by doing absolutely nothing
above what is needful
use by date bargains, reductions
take my fancy at just wrong moment
– floor staff passing
I raise one hand in greeting
two raised in surrender (14th April 2014)
