Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to grow...

Three chaps from Simon Leyland

“Title”

emotion concentrated in
small things fifty mosquito bites
thirty on the legs “the” only
cure for “the” itch
was counting them “the only” way
to stop scratching
“was” writing about “them” (“in” my
death i am alone but “the” pain
of “my death” will be shared with you)
“the” base “of” this
hand (covered “with” burns and rashes
aches “and” pains all
“you” can say “you” own) “the” lint “in”
your pockets (“all you” really “own”)
one fruit “in” which many fruits are
collected “and”
“i” offer “you” half (“this” is “the”
most delicious
bit) “but” Valerie “you” must
never put bananas “in” “the”
refrigerator she presses
herself against
“the” door “and” “this” “door” is over
one hundred years
old very fragile please do not
lean against it or try “to” force
“it” fully open (thanks) like “the”

Dear diary

This passing reference to
The sound of a car passing in the night
Sheds light on the more obvious
Angles of the possible movements of
The immense and deadly
Shadow organisations
Whose formidable criminal genius
And panther like stealth is now at your fingertips

It is time to jettison the excess baggage
And open the floodlights illuminating all those squatters
living in the ellipses
Not to mention the water sheds

Yes, it is all out in the open now.
So it was you my friend, who reduced
My soliloquies to babble
Consigning me to oblivion.

Let me let you in on a secret –
I have always wanted to be consigned to oblivion.
It is my expression of our great cultural death wish,
And, contrary to popular belief,
Oblivion is not an island whose chief port is Encomia
(or formerly in Roman times, Ecomium)
