the ice melted hours ago I'm only meat on a bed posing for a dead artist who can't make me famous now night doesn't get as dark as it used to and there's something sharp stuck between these pages every so often a word breaks up but I can't find and wake up too soon to remember if I go somewhere everything will be alright so today can I dress up in whatever cartoon personality looks most real ex-socialite needs a new invention now all the windows round here have reflective glass looking at me the acting never slows down and outside a good luck charm for sailors love your uniform take me flying everyday take me wasting everyday take me fucking everyday take me nothing everyday take me dreaming I could break through different as far as anyone can see and wise from my colossal unconscious inside twisting my belly around machine thunder outside in my mind is the vision of a new bird wing or the remains of a fight between angels made-up disguised as one evil more potent than the other to poison big lurid replay movie action distracted everyday night shift jaws open stray wing clamped echoey panic broken on the floor shiny in I want you to show me praise light tell me what you mean it's too bright yes the flowers are pretty but why do I have to face glare lamp to me they're angel wings coz angels don't exist I imagine I imagined the whole thing everyone needs some sun arrival time unknown dazed and pinned down like a lab rat even animals look haunted by living in this tunnel of fahrenheit extremes hiding cuts of silent television interference shows a failed picture sound of tonight as I stand by the only window I open incidentally the most difficult to reach and wonder if I might bleach into ghosty black and white speed rushing horizon and convex when there's too much peace in the night we see too much wherever I go someone will find out some of us sleep mutant dreams

Map 71 Brighton, UK

Hypnotic drum rhythms build an environment for stories told by a restless observer.
