Material Wriggling - full text



Material Wriggling

Light walking a shining pearlised
sheer sheet, glass damage &
irrelevant intent skimming across a 
density of insufficient resistance;
an increasing cold red mid-range
whining of contemplative satisfaction 
plus a four-dimensional ring of
anxiety over unmade travel arrangements
drifting over slowly wriggling legs 
sticking out of a bin, feet in wet bed socks -
opening out a damp and shivering rent
in soft blue-grey air, self-care and self-
identity are tending to shimmer from the 
edge and then inwards - and then out, 
and, suffused with lust, the bright light
is full of saliva and electrical muscular impulses. 




Skin greasing dirt onto paint: a dull
smear, a shining through a diamond-
hard temporal absolute, run through 
with lurid impossible colour, infinitely 
parting with Planck-length cracking,
a movement to alpha centauri via every 
route along and out of the way; a fingernail 
scraping away a layer of skin inside a 
limitless ricocheting hail of waves/
particles/strings and a door swinging
through blocking and unblocking,
a dull shine passing back and 
forth across a satin surface, dimmed 
slightly briefly every apex, an interference of 
dirt greased by skin onto paint. 




Across a red brick wall a little winter light will 
fall successfully, wriggling to it in many billions,
processing the problem of a world like a 
universe in which it exists. A problem that 
subsists. A brief morning folding onto a past morning 
and a sharper, harder light. And when light lifts away
and darkness rises from the asphalt and pavements,
bringing coolness and the scent of living 
flesh, an undulating and a fizzing starts that is
loving every connective glance of a 
living collective joy in a heart of matter, a
rapid gesture of an appendage that draws through
another space, another substance and every
molecule of every mode, a gesture of defiant joy. 




A steel spring daylight soft in a corner.  Breathing, dim. 
A darkness smudging up white tiles glowing in 
and out, 
spun, astronomically, across glazed surfaces 
drifting shine drifting daily refreshed, slow under a rapid 
impact of drops of water penetrated by sharding  light,
splinters sheering off & imaging a window and dim 
shimmering. 
A body shifting through intersecting events, 
an obscure blurring across an individuation of an eon
and sharp inside a hour. 
A figure flickering across a million retinas. 
A gigantic torso eternally patterned with lichen,
suddenly crumbling across a millennium into dust and sand. 



A print of paint obscured by a  brightness bouncing 

There is a faint birdsound and a quietness in distanced cacophony 
but impressing in a body is silence 

An obscuring paint print brightness bouncing through and
a wind, a slight and light wind in pale sunlight
oddly dreaming, slightly,  curling up and becoming 
painlessly torn, exhilarating, ripped and new-scattered -
demon love outside any kind of eyesight, pulling 
away for a pan-plane galvanising joy by ugly shock. 




A plunging 
eyeblink 
exhausting 
a rain 
a crowd
a sea 
a city 
and a light 
that ricochets 
                between it,
a shuffling 
movement 
across 
a crowd 
a blood 
vessel 
spinning through 
a body; 
a dancing of 
energy through 
energy, waves 
and rippling 
inside 
rippling 
and waves, 
resonating 
forces and 
material 
shimmering



Entwining shuddering sound waving across red and gold air sillage, 
a tapping across a dirty wooden surface, splashing dark & sticky
thrilling liquid skin in rhythm and in sync, air pressure falling, 
high night air ringing warmly and crackling alongside street lamp halos,
a speck within a speck turning and shining at a periphery of a 
framing cut, evanescent, buzzing, burning, convulsions. 



Skin whispering inside a whirling of a variation of engines and a
depth of shining through darkness/
         moving always in process and already begun, skin whispering
through, like moving through traffic, a whirling of various engine
noises, a body of these several durations intersecting as a 
multiple one, this engine plus that one and that one plus an other and
always including this one, that one and an other plus a whispering of
skin and a depth of beauty of a shining through darkness. 



A street is vibrating and reflecting itself as waves are 
passing always through it, vibrating as they go and 
turning in the structure of concrete, infinite, complex and 
orchestrating itself vibrating vastly, anarchist, a music of  
spheres in a hair follicle on a dog’s back in a street at
seven pm, darkness full of colour and light, in April this year.

Contagion - full text

Across the water I falling in my waves and particles 
Brightening myself cutting through, elements
Mingling as I merge as I watch myself watching under my 
Racing sky, warmth on my face and across my concrete 
Surface beneath my feet walking running standing and pivoting
I'm kissing and I'm watching me kissing with taut
Passionate cheeks that make me smile in my waves and particles
As I'm borne on my wind and torn and scattering wetly into my air




I darkening slowly across an autumn evening and gaining a chill
Surface of skin and Formica and wood and painted metal as I
Tread crunching on gravel and pant and pad softly in wet grass
My clouds massing blackly against my purple, and I run and 
I stroll slowly my hand in my hand faux-oblivious past me in
My damp sleeping bag and inscribed with black grime laid 
Across and pressing into my cracked and dirty black & white tiled 
Surface lit me a blinking amber shining reflected off my dark windows




Feet frozen in my boots steel toe cap cold caught in
My wet mud ground I reflect me seen by me as I pass and
Fall acutely across the sky and over boots turn ups and mud
Against sheets of glass around dog ears & fingertips of gloves
I feel class anger in the core of my gut & complacently consider
Lunch in a little restaurant around the corner love my own energy
Avoid looking men in the eye stand with relatively enormous force
But relatively little already crumbling slowly in winter sun and wind 



Music runs through watching me moving and filling a head 
And less than stationary body living later autumn unseasonal 
Warmth and night-yellow Camden weekend noise I headlights &
Scent particles of food & I a woman’s middle life and iron past
Bringing her me to the feel of the cool glass in her my fingers 
A nodding dj’s head an exuberant dance move a wet shine 
On a worn smooth sticky well used wooden table top
I go quickly doppler by wailing I sit I stand I walk

Contagion - first two sections



Across the water I falling in my waves and particles 
Brightening myself cutting through, elements
Mingling as I merge as I watch myself watching under my 
Racing sky, warmth on my face and across my concrete 
Surface beneath my feet walking running standing and pivoting
I'm kissing and I'm watching me kissing with taut
Passionate cheeks that make me smile in my waves and particles
As I'm borne on my wind and torn and scattering wetly into my air




I darkening slowly across an autumn evening and gaining a chill
Surface of skin and Formica and wood and painted metal as I
Tread crunching on gravel and pant and pad softly in wet grass
My clouds massing blackly against my purple, and I run and 
I stroll slowly my hand in my hand faux-oblivious past me in
My damp sleeping bag and inscribed with black grime laid 
Across and pressing into my cracked and dirty black & white tiled 
Surface lit me a blinking amber shining reflected off my dark windows

... a bright gesturing of concrete and steel ...

“... rhythms, lights, space-times must themselves become true characters...”

reflecting off concrete and through glass  
meeting shadowed surfaces keeping cool
against raging sunspots here and eight minutes away,
desiring the rising and then tumbling sculpture
of water that giggles across parching skin and is
rubbed and sucked 
away ...



... rubbering

this balancing ...



... quickening brief 
playing across steel
expression, hearing particles ...



... pouring horizontally along the sour honey grasses
           a harsh, gritty 
          breathing 
           of a heaving sea
passing across white walls darkening
with underfresh years,
        underfeeding, &
      with rapid turning ...



... dimly silvering evening light 
Illuminating a patch of asphalt
flanked by a bright
         gesturing
of concrete and steel ...
