that riffles camouflage sediment
answering capture inventions
so much throughput the small talk
windless night kind hologram.

Whatever a person fears


Whatever a person fears will make suspicion. Identification is hearsay or opinion; distanced voices, identities or selves, becoming contemporary:  painful work of generous intelligence.
Assumption of historical context. Belief without fear. And it does matter what imagination is. Forever being. It seems another idea. The termination of intellectual superiority, compelling enough. The maladies of fear.
Definition performance a trace of art, the mad among the many commentators, already dead, unfettered; the history of the people a single reading sympathetic to depictions, the troops of the combative writer, surmise overthrown, invariably monstrous. Incumbent distinctions matter. The background is not really funny, a wide range of idea and brutality. Believe it, but in ambiguous light, an achievement of the imagination thing.
Political realism is suspicious. A lot of beauty. Rely on survival, gangsters but without extensive foreign support, horrendous conquerors, coloratura within, the malady of art, the ear in governance embedded in hope, participation in lack, the cruelties of apprehensions
difference against the invasions of identity
in confrontation
the termination moral
try to build a fool
clear the masses
reconstruct killed mechanisms
fear will oppose
feeding into attitudes
beliefs disastrous

5 poems || John Pursch

How Barf Lacks

Indie trite hound codas 
swerve at fine dining sores,
canning given circumcision 
for bunk bed chill charades, 
steamily rending outer hunks 
at precessing polar heist climbs, 
axing tensile shrugs 
from librarian clocks.

How barf lacks 
one scanned glow 
while naked hens canoe, 
tiptoeing past vowels 
in constant string suction’s 
tree hearse alimony bib, 
graven over ad hoc stovepipe 
chatroom popularity feet.

Once Apron Etude

Amazing amanuensis artillery anxiously asserts every ogling headlong assumption, commandeering mulish low-rider precedents for consequential depravity’s newly flagellated temblor of tambourine pith and fairly baleen equivocation, slumbering too far below a hovering selector’s trained pathways.

Wordless swingers smile into steeply puckered thighs, plunging specious guitarist pylons in feebly entrusted aerial motives, whisked away to gurgling encirclement’s river of tirade neglect. Formaldehyde encapsulates a pinch of shaken salmon ignition, freshly opposed in atavistic chemistry soot, hounded into parochial dockyard proxy rebuttal by paltry pagination graphs.

Swaggering swiggers wig in caravan cacophony, meting out cylindrical colanders of derby-colored wingless strops, pinned to axon detritus. Shields splinter abutment yarns in millisecond perusal cruft, humbling even the pressed eventualities of sutured fisticuffs, playing drowned limelight tankards in sanctioned truncations of a deviled beeswax monogram’s ellipsoidal grunt.

Fiercely planted streetcar palaver mimics hocked pen pal eruption fees, soldering summations to leading louts with ribald stockyard sibling ankles embedded in fungal shams. Bowling steams in spastic mug shot hooliganism in time for trivial Mondays, evening out deranged chant dealers.

I hear entrusted file droughts peeling back Tyrolean time bomb suits, reviling flubbed cleats. Known once apron etude for kissing altruistic ballgame desecration hymns, thinking stevedores rush bravely out of ink to callous wavefront jetsam pilings, shaving bursars into chary sponge espousal.

Cue Ball Contrails

Lunge-ass thinking holed up in neither
tree lines nor candied clifftop dungarees,
plenty of denuded sophisticates hashing
weighty torsion feathers into useful
one-word semaphores of regional import,
sure to mooch off innate ivory shuckers.

Sleeveless cellophane
left wanting inner knucklers,
shaven from drowned town centaur felt,
smoothly fitted cue ball contrails spreading
warnings out to lighthouse pancake slip-up cranes.

Hefty weeds crowd stake aweigh,
shifting chains from slinky dough
in boggled cattle all the spay
to flossing mainspring settlers,
crossed at glandular trickle stops,
manned by shorn malts and feral jeans. 

Excess Eggs

Buried in whirling adages of lost pelagic slipstream soup, nougat-bearing loadies balance christened whimsy play toy towers on autumnal sidebar spherules, itching edgy tourniquets of porcine flagrancies with diplomatic trophy gutter magpies, bent on foul determinacy’s indisputable ratchet queen.

Training glossy buns on spouting hailstorm lamination jukes, umbral mentation indulges hourly chimney toasters by the handheld fulminator’s dryly fumbled raisin turkey griller, fondly offered in suffusion’s castoff iron segue fence.

Nodding withered stalwart huddles pay in corked diameters of apprehensive suds, gently tying off on bedpost roulette garrisons of foxtrot deli techno eulogies for procaine stumble fashion wheels in humble downy polka dirges.

Bodies give it ye hauled triage tyranny, facing duly spectacular bedroom sand ticks down to ribald dumpster chute survival, wedging wobbly water stew’s edition platter into fulsome martinet retreat, pulling on framed suffragettes with inches of deleterious relay peat.

Infusing temblors race to sandbag dolphin dumplings, cementing woozy portents of a flavored isthmus, pumped to contrail idiom’s hedge in dusty matrimony.

Selfsame wads avert eternal mixing posture’s coastal parturition, carping on wrung dailies in daughter drones of hooligan empties, shaking musty canes at hallowed whey assembly paws, cleaved to saw teeth in defection’s bluish greasepaint stitch.

Excess eggs row back from sloughed-off clover tiers at three o’clock’s slowly spined collusion spike, eyeing voluntary owls with conning dowry discotechnical lion crates, bowed to shyly camping oleo’s tinder shade of burbled onset.

Oblongata Moxie
Turgid opportunities insist
on mass communal caissons,
remanding allied salt replay
for altercation demons.

Paradise invades secluded
barter tombs with bottled caulk,
puddling into queasy cordite glue.

Keeping luck tea locked down low,
blending over fly nest hokum’s
wooden tabula gracias,
peaking hinges flame
pecan wader wheat
with hallway tendencies,
ugly groans descaling
shaven tees with
oblongata moxie.

poem || Jeff Harrison

Bonfire Of Psychoanalysis

you could play
chess with the
shadier elements
of her story

you call white, &
she the black pieces
pulled up from streets

or you could both play

you could use the thimbles
blasts beneath them
in the four-moon-one-tree night
one bird,
whose reflection's a branch
one branch,
whose mirror's a bird
one gale,
whose glass is a branch
a branch
whose secret double's
the palm of your hand -
listen, you -

picking antique out of silver
she's lost her tongue, she's bonfire of
medicine keeps her secret (double's
the silver feather in her wing)
sleep rewrites her million (of doll-ars,
of wings), she hoooooooooooooots
"inability abuses permanence"
out of her left-side mouth &
"slumber ENDANGERS timetables"
out of her right-hand mouth

bonfire of
what hummingbird do you
hold in your beak?

below you sleep a thousand stallions
the hummingbird's shadow fallllllllllls upon

All talk

She: Sitting right beside him. Stillness. She went back to her writing, singing quietly.
He: He licked his pencil; but then, without using it, threw it on the floor.
She: In her head, she paused, still writing, still singing. She phrased a complaint.
He: She was so boring, trivial. All these different words she muttered; to provoke him.
She: Stupid, she thought, stupid. It was; he was.
He: He knew, she was deep but slow, too fuzzy to mention. She'd been an exciting game. You run everything, she'd said. The slight creak of her chair now. Indistinguishable movement.
She: He thought it was dark.
He: She spoke now. "What time?"
She: He was strange, each day puzzled to find himself. Quick, insane, dark figure, bent. Snug, trying to stop.
He: She'd been lying beneath his head. Just my legs, their arrival. Joke or not, motionless, bare.
She: The ground floor of the end.
He: He liked the sound of his chair. There was some amusement. The open doorway. He was being testy, a hole through strangeness.
She: He was winning again. His mouth drew her, the look.
He: Something under each day without words. A recalcitrant look today.
She: She pushed her annoyance again.
He: In the dark on the seat opposite. He didn't understand it.
She: The fabric of her, the vehicle, her boots. People taking notes. Talking sounds whispered.

the course often charge leans through
to switch ieonids parsecs voiceovers
a narrow surveillance contrast

scene raider sacretemps
fend gentility peccary nsaid
wherein classic coquin regulators
empty as
vessels overturn
marring etiologies neither aside
moisture vacancy determinism
encircle text amidst middle forest
green tactile voices each role
then softer unit querying
selvage mystique for no one.

however the personning alien to first
advantage beginning scrape gather
eon running harmony
smile those
refugees enfonce merrily pausing.


thoroughly there insanity placard
epsilon impervious tolerant
affirming lassos the amicable thread.

while thereas first planned
oversight robust aggregate opaque
when sampling recursion the folly
neither annotation spars felicity
ellipsis treading sundown.
the risk vestigially promised away
sufficing predators erase from

acrostic peace.
murmur each leniency can
debut mirroring epsilon
genetic there assail
resilience preoccupation forming
scampers throated vireo
consular tone resilience torque maven
sole placebo that there inertia opulence
masala between sighs.

multivoice expostulations
for S H

“seeking the totality”  (1)


began blossom      wood           wall
fragrant branches      outline here
sturdy lighting devices

accept the space
and space glides sharply
into cataclysm

faithful huge white glitters

the town is austere after glamour

space black
head arriving

flames pervading
watch everything

green on green
red memory
exchanging harmony

drum silent
and after the music, you're everywhere

supporting prancing
green by red

through the depicted sunshine
gates on every side
skyline orange below

trees pierce the filling municipality
space twinkling
town brilliant

began blossom memory
exchanging white into swaying
orange below
vibrating shimmer
red visible

smiling scattering every hinterland
the which is unforgettable
white and the music
flames by green

lost between us
you hear forget

framed memory no love

between us you hear you hear you hear you hear you hear

the masts the sea the sky


jolting trees impatiently
many in orange and green
all orange below

spun eye
juice spills
tinted carpet
apple riches
no love in memory
red tinted

amongst gold

white and soft and in cars
and in sky



sparse black
is top and crown
lets many in your once
once desperate
beside a hand place

between alone is the gates
dancing from might

where and may it reverse?

is unforgettable where soft
jet violent, soft you, be over
the filling the past falls dancing
between us
across our skyline to a man
but the gates looking quiet
bright and after


beat several
sharply arriving
a smelling white
your reverse?
silent quiet bright
cloud hour
into the day
cloud hour

into the past of cling
dancing from

tell your people dreams
where and is


pioneers neighbours into cuts eyes
exhales on tea, memory
to rage
rubbing where soft
into in far all when
when all moored
horizon glows flee gray silver white and the quiet
human a mist
a barely sap riding

shouting from
bring merchandise

which is unforgettable
soft you watched everything

racing the wind
smell and sun
across our skyline

space and somewhere scaling
tracks vapours
empty harmony
filling the rhythmic head

all orange ink

(1) “seeking the totality” is a quotation from a revised version of West Boogie which was published by Masthead magazine edited by Alison Croggon. West Boogie and the earlier West address the 1999 total eclipse of the sun, visible as a total eclipse in the west of Cornwall
