Girl In Coffee Shop

April 11, 2005

He watches her
Sitting in the booth
Half concealed from him
Her face hidden beneath
A curtain of copper hair
A portable Purdah
Her expression obscured,
Staring into her cappuccino
She is part of a benevolent
Coffee shop universe
Untouched by catastrophe
Untainted by atrocity

But then she rises
And heads towards the door
She pauses and then runs
Out into the knife-like rain
Her copper hair grows damp
And darker. Its glow is gone
Its strands plastered down
Her skirt trails behind her
Through the mud
And he bemoans
The ephemerality
Of living things

A Name to Inspire Confidence

April 11, 2005

I was given the wrong medication by a young female locum called Dr. Watson (a name that should inspire confidence, if ever there was one). I took it anyway and spent half the morning on the ‘phone, negotiating a prescrition for my usual: Zolpidem.

Needless to say, I got it.

Attired In Innocence

April 11, 2005

Diminutive and doleful
In my attire of innocence
You foist your vision
Of what I must be
Upon me

A lamp leads you to me
And, instantly, you become
An essential part of the recipe
That resides within me
We collide, we coincide

I am sculpted marble
With a soul without blemish
Spread out for your satisfaction
So calm, so unnaturally calm
I sail on your unseen seas

I invited you in
But I did not see the barnacles
That cling to the sides of your ship
Spear in hand, you pounce and now
Everything is on the periphery
Of your assumptions

some fucking spastic

This guy: some fucking spastic does not like ‘lemons’

I’m confused. Men usually like ‘lemons’. They buy videos of them in action and everything. I guess they want to join in and convert them to…um, I don’t know…oranges.

Just for the record, I am not a ‘lemon’. I am a strawberry.

I wonder why I felt compelled to add that :rollseyes:
