Unspoken Knowledge

  There are things that we know that we never speak aloud, like secrets, but secrets have words, and words can be spoken. Not feelings, because feelings  can be unknown, formless and vagrant, and even when they are powerful, they are not knowledge.   No, there are things we know about ourselves, about others, about […]

True Black

I flicked off the light and blew out the candles, because I can only write to you from the dark.   Sunlight’s too bright and stark filament fires burn away the meaning. Even these new compact LED’s just wash out white, evaporating the words that sit in shadows.   I play in shades of grey […]

We Live The Night Life

Let there forever be wonder in the night. Let us never cower from the dread of dark hands that clutch our hearts and minds and draw our bravery from us; for even in our terror we are intrepid.   We have inhabited the dark, the void of space, the immensity of Earth’s deepest places. We […]

Lovers of Desolation

Lovers of desolation, in our hearts we yearn for obliteration. In our most lucid, hidden fantasies, we dance and fuck in cities razed by fire.

In these uncertain moments, these dark and deadly days, any movement could be disaster; this is when doing nothing pays. No need to worry, or even feel sorry. The Nothing’s so […]

As the night wears on, thoughts border on suicide, all the time is mine on my side. Regretting nothing and everything, past/present/future – tortures my […]

A.M. Downside

A.M. Downside   Morning for the downside starts in the afternoon and I’m still sitting here; eyes at half mast. Those who pursue this way of life know what it is I say, ever driving, dead inspired, in the past. Wired into existence a quiet fool’s dignity. Life lived on a razor blade, on the […]

The Dark

Every night I lit a candle, warding off the dark. I wondered what was going on, in the blackness standing stark. One night I let the candle die and the dark encompassed all; I was greeted by the Lord of Night he was fearsome, dark and tall. I asked him a question, of what was […]
