HEIRLOOM and 1984

HEIRLOOM As her belly swelled, she heard an opera the waves crashed against the rocks in fury, the aria of war. Perhaps, the geometry of her life unraveled: love, pain, shame, the chronicle of blood lines, her clan lived in the same house for six generations. One son moved from the North Sea to the […]

Blank Fear

My heart is like a green moon overgrown with forest Your heart is like a blue sun, cool yet honest   I want to make you a meal and for it to coincidentally be your favourite food and it seem so perfect completely accidentally and I want you to trace the outline of my body […]

Simone the Cyborg

The room looked the same as all the other interview rooms. The interviewers too were similar to all the others. They had the same suits, same way of sitting, same bored expressions and now the one on the right, and it was always the one of the right, was about to ask the usual question. […]

It was all over a misunderstanding, but like most misunderstandings it led to greater revelations and an irresolvable rupture, leaving a gaping hole torn into the fabric of being where happiness had once lived. Ireland was […]

Internet poem

They seek exits from their flesh: and the internet is compressed text each hyperlink blue-slurpee sweet, that fact a hook-duck, this poll tipped by bowling at the coconut shie. Win information! Roll home with a rumour! By hitting the button, bright lights, rubber hammer. ‘Make me the next like Robocop’ one whispers to the sugar […]

Jam today and Have half sleep

Jam today Red light giant cyclops watches unblinking over Still snake skin of steel Which winds up and down so far in the distance Before your eye gives up And returns to your half read book, Too tired to comprehend the little dancing shapes, Been here too long, What started as grey counterfeit light has […]

IT WAS A CUT-UP

IT WAS A CUT-UP Even before police developed the first prototypes of the stinger strip, Mr Gysin and Mr Burroughs developed the cut-up. And seeing the gas-guzzling car of the great American novel, with its tyres of tradition, careering out of control before them, Mr Burroughs threw the long jumbled sentence of a cut-up across […]

New work by Patrick Williams
