Poem: 'Voices/ The Man With The Flexible Conscience'

 



VOICES/ THE MAN 

WITH THE 

FLEXIBLE CONSCIENCE 



the house is old, 
silence falls from the ceiling 
to fill cracked cups, as 
sunseeds seep in neat parcels 
through frost-glass windows 
to collide in soft detonation 
across the sink, 
I am alone… 

from 
somewhere beneath me 
disembodied tentacle voices 
squirm through the walls, 
snakes of syllables and 
crawls of consonants 
meander up the stairwell, 
to echo the light escaping 
beneath a ground-floor door, 
words blend smoothly into 
unevenly painted woodwork and 
slide gently along emulsion walls 
to fall and congeal into pools 
in odd corners of the hallway, 
occasional laughter hastens 
up the stairs, step by step, 
as talk dances and whores 
to disguise its banality, it swings 
euphoric from the light-bulb 
when it discovers a clever phrase, 
taps on the grease-encrusted stove 
to discover its depth, and 
echoes itself from the mirror, 
the house is old, 
I am alone…

Final Fantasy XIV players should be more careful, otherwise even if they have more FFXIV Gil, they will not get a good and smooth experience.
