UNDERSTANDING AND COMPLACENCE

THE FOLLOWING POEM WAS WRITTEN IN THE RED, THAT IS, RED THINKING NOT RED BEHAVIOUR IN A RELAPSE MEASURE

 

Hell

it was good

to make the end of your time here

into a shrimper

who isn’t allowed to make it

so he asks for the nerve to make the right and wrong seem to be

the where and the when.

It is not going to be then and now

it is going to be there and then

and not here for it is not a now but a what

so as to make all the red and yellow flags seem the same.

It is about the rights of the telling

and not the right of listening to it.

It is not about the rights of all to see it through

but rather the right of all to see then and then and then

and not here or there

so as to make it and go to the sort of thing they call

regis callum.

It is not the rights of all

to see and hear

for it is why they all ask

what to do with it in the new yarding

and venturing capitalist spinelss

wonderment.
