For the reader? Spoken word? Performance art? Can a poem be all three? #DalsonBallet

house of o’dwyer for Dalston Ballet

 

 

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

down I come

 

enjoy the ache

Medicate me

choke on me

 

prevarication

i don’t need anyone

the taste of it

shit

he’s back, for more

I can’t take all of it

split in two

 

brain on the floor

rub my face in it

fight me for it

 

ride me home

teach me what

my mouth is for

July 29, 2018

 

Silence

 

In refusing to lie

Refusing to lie about it

To lie about it all

 

About what I know

All what I know

I know I will

 

I will I know

In refusing

Refusing to lie

 

Lie about it

What I know

I wlil I know

 

I will be

Reduced

Reduced to silence

 

To silence

Silence

[Silence]

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

Crouch down

shut me up,

shut me down

Come in my eye

Let me go

I can suck at it myself

taste the meat
