when contemplating Reinhard Heydrich
I don’t conceive like I do
fruit
sex
even goose (never for lunch, only seen.)

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

these wonderful gods which
you respectfully
swallow
for a few moments
before
tossing a short
purpose to
display near the
world.

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.

Maintenant #99 – Rhys Trimble published 27/05/2015

It’s such a Welshman’s cliché but perhaps musicality, if not song, makes its way into my work and performance. In written work it’s the alliterative and sound aspects which are borrowed from song. Of course Welsh language poetry is a song / poem hybrid which uses cynghanedd (the welsh system of alliteration and internal rhyme) which amounts to a systematization of poetry that brings it in line with our rules for western music but working on verbal sounds instead of tonal sounds. Any exposure to it results in it creeping into your work it’s everywhere here- place names and phraseology! Certainly the welsh tradition of poetry has an effect of what you feel you are allowed to do.

In the 99th of the Maintenant series, SJ Fowler interviews the Welsh poet Rhys Trimble.
