DREAM
(my try for size dream-
scene)

tried a
real fucking
rap
but it all
went flat

bitch put my
coke up
her
p..p..
patch

so I took
a nap
whilst
some guy
got
zapped

wrong place at
wrong time
in Trump
white America

but what
that got
to do
with me
me got
to do
with that

not gonna
do no Kaepernick
kneel for
the anthem
crawl for
the flag

shout out for
Donald as he
go riding
past
bitch that
cool
bitch that
gonna be
me
back of same same
bling machine
same limousine

and this the
scene:
gonna win
at rap
gonna
shoot
great
craps

gonna ride
East to
West
doin’ what
I do
best
with my bitch
babes bareass
in my
hand-
held porn
theme

sing
all my
beats
lines and
repeats

so you all
can
live
my
all-
American dream
(dream waltz through it
scene
after scene)

AND SHINY SHOES

the jury’s back
we’re the
most pathetic

believing in
beauty when
there
is none

it’s all so
faithless now
belief
just
a ruse

it’s all
digital dollar
and shiny
shoes

and the corporate bluster
all we can
muster

sum
of all
value and
meaning

lowest common
denominator
turned
principle
of truth

ENTIRELY

ENTIRELY

shaped
my poem
around you

followed the contours
of what I did
conceive

your breath so
close
scent on
your skin

heady concoction of
desire
turning volatile

becoming
inspiration

of the kind
nothing will satisfy

energy that swallows, absorbs,
rips through everything
on its way
to the new

to reconfiguration
creating something
beyond
the regular

so different entirely, in style
form and content
surpassing.
what was before

what had
seemed to
define me

MEANS THE WORST

let me imagine for
you the worst of
all possible
worlds

just one thing should suffice
a bladed blender device is
installed in your
mouth
there are speech sensors
linked up by satellite to
a remote centre for
processing
and implementation
of immediate
censorship

I think I can leave it there
except to add
of all the terrors
implemented by those who would be
worshipped as
our gods

this is
by no means
the worst
means
the worst

TABLOID TYPE

hewn out of
blocks of movable type

propagandists entire
purveyors of tripe

the mega-baron owned
scribblers of note

hacks of
savagery with
limited vocabulary
denizens
not
quite

more little
leviathans

tin potly infallible
port with the
truth

absolute
Quasimodo
Torquemadas
of the
public smear

humans from
Hell
I least
wish to
hear
