listening to Irish music

Mike- How sad is it?
Does it have to be so sad that it makes you cry?

That's how sad it is Mike. -Ben

Dennis Young

I'm not a natural
at anything
All I have is
-Bad Luck
-Stupid Luck


A swan and a soothsayer,
both awkward and enchanting,
you are a thundercloud of space dust, rolling in-
effervescent and deadly.

Capsized, we’re seizing the fragments
while experiencing sensory delight.
We’re treading water and losing;
slowly vaporizing and talking about it.

We’ll soon be powder,
nebulas in the darkness.

It is a paradoxical elegance
that from here looks like black ice
with islands of glass floating throughout;
shimmering in the majestic lunar glow.

This ache is blunt and nagging;
the lines are all pulled taut
and the glimmer in your eyes is
milky distant, and grey.

5th of july guilt

the Forth is over
and what have you done
you lazy
you pompous
you fortunate son
while the other world wallows
and screams in your muck
youre shooting off streamers
and driving big trucks
youre have a good time
and wooping it up
and sleeping in big beds
and then waking up
and eating big breakfasts
and big dinners too
but what have you done
you lazy
you you

(dedicated to Theodor Geisel)
