Let us praise violence
Let us praise hate
Let us praise vulpine nights in slow-burning trains
through quivering lights, vespertine carnivals of
radio scratch signals in stalled precinct deadness.
Let us praise city concrete hopelessless,
staring red-eyed with flashpoint confrontations,
a Hotel wall, sulphate paranoia,
the drip of falling water in glazed white
cisterns & wash-basins, cubicle sliding bolts
the stimulation of blood ejaculation hot &
shimmering to the cheek &
the dull throb of music pulse reverberation
through infinite pornographic blackness,
dull, heavy-industry nihilism.
Let us make monotony with the palour of death
dancing one-legged splayed-led hobble through
arcade flower-beds, tread boldly on a
sea of fragmented polystyrene cups
yelling a name into canyon negative echoes
vocoder-scrambled in wedges of monosyllable.
Let us praise pale abrasions and the silence
of places where no-one can find you,
white, glaring white in spit-bubble pearls
ink-deep in reflection &
ribs caved in, hunched up, spat out.
Let us praise the unravel of M-way lights,
the shimmer of vulnerable flesh in lunar-glow assault,
the insanity-radio night-howling of sirens
burning blue welts, stabbing prowl-car blue blue
sweat scabbing blue hair
tin-can scream lost in Nihilon on
machine-function robotnik dance.
Let us praise dysfunction of
membranes twitching in spasms.
Let us praise death.
Let us make hate.
Let us praise violence.
