Apricot Grumble

(A Tribute to Brighton)

August's heavy belly
                        fug of culture

sharpened gravel darts
two ton thunder waves

        chords to break your teeth on
        battery acid leaking into psalms
        static on the DAT
        airport x-rays scrawling


a perpetual, preliminary stage

I almost wish                   I didn't have to go

squashed bananas on the train

        insure against
        a future snoring
        (germanic manic organ sounds)
invest in names of bands

wait three days to ripen
        ditto  hours to swim

avoid botchedpudding syndrome

SLAMMED                  intothesea
