I've actually been looking at trying out some prose-poetry lately so was really interested to see you post this. Obviously the imagery ...


Mature Content Filter is On
(Contains: strong language)
They gave him some shit name
Just like  'ten fingered teddy boy',

But even his dad
Had known the music in him,so he got a guitar
and an amp and a band
And a family

And now
if you want to know about rivers
He'll put something down for you
On vinyl.

But hey, hey!

Did you ever see him on the continent?
He had those kids,

And they bottled daddy's time away
Because he did.

Listen, This is a man who lights forest fires
And steps out on bar fights
And maybe to some he's a flat case
And a black record

But, brother,
That's our father:
There ain't much he can't say
These days

He's got credit for rhythm
And being there in the beginning
Think that you know the metre of her
stony wrists,
shallow breasts:
the breakwaters of her ribs
and the low tide of skin
reaching between her legs.

Forget that she loves to sing
and that she will.
That she does, in fact, enjoy the taste of dried fruit;
that she dresses like a gypsy princess
in hiding
and has never put up with any of your shit.

Certainly, she holds a kind of hunger
in her eyes,

but you can only imagine the damage you could do

a thin girl
as beautiful as a wing.
the taste of dried fruit
Written on a beach and a train in Australia
I'd rather my name be written in
every bathroom stall in India,
America and Japan:
"Call for a good time."

I'm sure people would rather have the laugh
than the stone line of poetry
with my full name beneath it.

How could i not write the names of trees
and moths over and over:
the deaths head,
the white witch in the she-oak,
the broomsweet and the meadow?
So this is the last journal I'll put up for now. It's a handful of quotes that I keep in my poetry folder and a few poems I missed the first time around.

Quotes… - Jaime Gil De Bieda… - Miranda July… - Galileo Galilei
fuckyeahliteraryquotes.tumblr.… - Ian McEwan… - F. Scott Fitzgerald… - Jeffrey Eugenides… - Margaret Atwood… - Unknown… - J. Robert Oppenheimer

Poems… - Vladimir Mayakovsy… - Dean Young… - Ezra Pound… - Hafiz (really, really enjoyed this and just found out it was written over 700 years ago and he's basically part of Iranian history. What .… Phillip Kaye - from 'Repetition'
