I spent the last year abducted delivering change, sharing risk my father in considering magnificent lovers consulting names macabre or should that be a consultant to meanings obscured in keeping with family disdain Doyle and Cavendish unattached daughters doing stupid things no one does anymore John Huston told his daughter, "The worst thing is to be a dilettante."
talk about Reading ’98 about watching New Order I see what you’re doing, old man grasping nothing real I watch the bubbles in your drink beside your glass, a memo, Applying Our Values your charm is a secret allegories posited in the blind-spot of CCTV I won’t please you, let you go to be traded, translated buckets of blood, black pudding, a tower block alone in a field, a rolling theatre of clouds the Thames crossing us in a park, skinheads rehearse martial arts one brandishing a needle wannabe, take your boots off nature, you asleep faller mud to your ankles water to your thighs his repentance, a repertoire of excursions as if the next will be the one to take her silence his nostalgia, ruralism
and to those interesting moments be suspects misspent on a small detour not scared horses inter-lonely haunted by hauntings by the thought of what I'd say if I said what I'd wanted to say I wouldn't mind to rediscover you in torn-out pages resolved and conclusive this story isn't too clever and the subtitles are badly translated and to those melancholy forks that keep their call come back come back as at the curtain not-quite drawn I spy this time is ecstasy and we are lost, maybe staring from different carriages to the view we should not meet at our destination but if we do I'll make my excuses you make yours Sincerely, Paul Haworth
