temporary brain freeze

one month intense TESOL course. Two more weeks. Then I can think again. Got a gig for 10 weeks at a small college in Feb-April teaching students from Senegal and India. Yeah. New book coming soon from Harry's Arthur Shilling Press. Poetry from 2008. Part Dante in London. Lots of areas in London covered. YEAH!!!!

I’m crouching with the march of the penguins in a oversized parka
a world not yet dead
I am not the erection of a eunuch
the buts and the knaves
I’m dialing in and i don’t wanna say it
humba womba
dry coughs from the radiator
are you feeling fitty?
how this then methinks
somebody’s drunk my milk
I am not yet the harmony of submerged large birds
I am not yet the preamble of a leering mustache
I am not yet the baby-boom of sociopathetic innocence
it’s raining in London yeah big surprise
I wanna walk the parks with a brown bag and twenty rums
harder is a part of speech
here’s a dime now show me how to dance
I have an Oyster and i know how to use it

I’m crouching with the march of the penguins
in a oversized parka
a world not dead
but sometimes the erection
of a eunuch
as a wet tablecloth
as a community
you deserve better prigs
deep down beneath the maniacal weather
above the buts and the knaves
i’m dialing in and i don’t want to say it
dry coughs from the radiator
how this then rethinks me
there is this and there is that
vice will continue
harder is a part of speech
somebody’s drunk my milk
