Airport published 29/11/2015

appel-airport-3

situated at the crossroads of looking and reading / words and images … often feature abstract comics combined with asemic writing – writing that has no semantic value … split-level pomes – a ‘pome’ is (perhaps) a dyslectic poem….

Here we see James working and me crying. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. The dog’s name was Horatio. Was hit by a car in 2009. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working in the gardens at Kew. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. Here we see James working. I took this the day I left. I think that’s just about all the time I have, so I’ll be happy to take everything now.

One Blood Moon for July & Other Poems published 23/10/2015

Now in this
Polynesia of parking lots
direction is hard to negotiate;
once I found a staircase
inside a supermarket, and climbed until
it led me to a hotel.
Every room was locked, every
pattern on the carpet
and curtains
disorienting

think. he looked proud. Aryan
race.
face, fascist.
murderer. evil?
naming, nominating–
thinking to distract thought

these wonderful gods which

They work hard to gyrate their round bodies full like circles, trying on that true shapes are not halves but simply overlap. She is at the window watching oriental women cross the street in long dresses with great patterns. He is in the dining room spooning vanilla tufts from a plastic cup.

Effectively Calculable & other poems published 06/09/2015

Six out of ten people similarly see themselves inside the outside at the heart of the normal run of things. To put it otherwise would be pure violence, as if he wasn’t pushed from the wall, but fell of his own accord. That’s to create something out of nothing—say the missing mass that passed right through your fingers, like sand or time. Detection might just mean recording the screams of this singularity after it has fully gravitated toward a state of necessary disrepair.
