blest through plague the ceramic rice sways


mainboard hibernates

van Winkle process

counts down


dead on the dole they wait, hands empty

time travel booth
a row of buttons
down her front

bring small bills — transhumans won’t make change

mounds
of plastic bags all that is known
of that race


Generation Ten ate all the steel


dust and scrub,

yet this can smells of
iridium

Somewhere it's Spring

Posted by Rich Magahiz Sat, 02 Feb 2008 23:28:00 GMT

a lark’s song
and she wakes – it’s just a dream
of Earth


through leafmould sapphires burn: Seventh Life


early dawn –

windshields clear of
ammonia frost


next up to bat… Homo habilis


this place of red,

turning… the first of
many worms


when sulphur flows

down living rock,
remember me

The five stages of middle age

Posted by Rich Magahiz Sat, 26 Jan 2008 14:54:00 GMT

I

Matisse,
in his forties,
was years before his peak.
So what’s the rush? I’ve still got loads
of time.

II

Bastard!
that young pipsqueak
doesn’t deserve that car.
I raced Mustangs when he played with
Hot Wheels.

III

Okay,
I’ll lose some weight,
and switch to light beer too.
I’ll show my old lady I’ve still
got it.

IV

Hang on,
maybe there’s a way.
If I could sell this place…
Dammit, what’s the use, who am I
kidding?

V

Ali –
he missed his chance
at gradual decay.
Strange to picture him living to
my age.

Pilgrim

out of
the matter pod: a parfit
gentil knight

the Sibyl speaks: silos start to rise

  Ful worthy was he in his lordes werre,
  And therto hadde he riden (no man ferre)
  As wel in Cristendom as hethenesse,
  And ever honoured for his worthinesse. 
Geoffrey Chaucer

Aeons

tick
the mountains crumble
tick
you come back to me

my bad: one more anthracite fruitcake
what the heck are those things in my ash pan?
