un Projects



sanitation was a response to the
putridness of British life
classed, crammed, sick
the toilet is where you
there are chickpeas simmering gently
on the stove
identical almost to my
body simmering in the hot bath
thoughts slowing down
or in the shower, speeding up
Special Agent Dale Cooper
perceived the demonic presence
of Bob by smashing
his head through the bathroom mirror
I was in the bath with someone when they
passed out smacking their head on the hard tiles
scenes of intimacy quickly turn to
scenes of horror
(no wonder the Psycho
shower scene has stuck)
not transcended, though we put
on beautiful faces, standing, sitting
not pissing, just staring
into the shaving mirror (fogged over like a cataract).
