may day may day

 

I saved a bee from drowning

On the paving stones, vintage

reproduction slabs, I had

just been brushing with water.

I slid some plastic, notes on plant care

underneath and extracted it from death

I could feel its buzz, through the plastic

a gentle engine

I placed it in a rose bush and soon dry again

the little fluffy thing flew off.

The humanity of the bee, struggling, working,

fluffy with a sting, industrious, unthinking

mining flowers, beauty unaware,

the humanity of the bee

gentle engine

stung me.

Exile, alienation, weaving wounds into work,

work for thee to do, social misfit, bitter sweet,

unlucky in love, in life, in art.

You, you’re not serious enough,

flesh and bone nothing to where.

nothing about my life

perfect proportions

Serious is not the same as solemn

I was enjoying the deluge here in London, but it did go on far for too long!

+ Editing novel and writing lyrics

Crouch down

bent double

over the counter

blunt force trauma

fill the empty interior

shut me up,

shut me down

manage the beast

stop the hysteria,

work for the tongue

roughly speaking

worship and adore

under the weather,

Come in my eye

post traumatic stress disorder

Let me go

out patient

I can suck at it myself

taste the meat

feel the heat…

The Chanteuse

 

Wandering star

I never talk about my bad traits

glamour from a Gilda age

jewel personalities,

London calling

mix and match of the day

beyond the beach

Switzerland without skis

the demolition man

unsteady odyssey

street of shame

human capital

every breath you take defensive

behaviour odd to ominous

not just another maestro

an artist finds his groove

folk of ages

avant-garde explosion

pay up, pay up and play the game

let the field of the mind fall fallow

please hang up and try again.

April 25, 2017

Love working with the Dalston Ballet. Currently wearing many hats; Choreographer, stylist, libretto, dresser, special effects, film editor… and now performer!

I performed the role of ‘Artist’ in Dalston Ballet’s contemporary dance performance art work at Hackney Showroom early in April.

I shot this video while doing it, which means it must be Art! It also means you dont see me at work!

 

 

 

This video of Artist’s studio shows just one of four works we performed that night including:

Principessa

Bleed in Bleed Out

Marine

Everything went to plan, mostly.

Hope to take it to more venues this year.
