the STRANGER

a film about our sub-conscious self

full text:

the stranger walks amongst us. he smells our smells,
he builds his theories as he watches us, silently stalking, 
silently walking. he lurks around the corners of our notions,
our silly and wicked dreams, the narrow paths of our legacies, 
forming and un-forming.

some say he will die one day. some don’t believe it. 
some say he is filling all the balloons to make the atmosphere empty and cold, to freeze our memories and create cave drawings
that could be examined by ultra-violet fantasies, breezing, 
easing, wheezing through to the other side of willy, the other side of silly.

as the night swallows us, his day begins.
as we sleep, he wakes up sometimes reminding us
of the losses over ages, the capes and the cages
and at other times, gently making love to us, snoring and
whoring but, always creeping only while sleeping.

RIVER DROWNING HORSES

river drowning horses
they are calling me home.
they are calling me home.

angels and demons
they dine in a cafe

dancing
to the electric eel.

in a distant land
full of lust

i could have loved you
i could have been your man.

river drowning horses
they are calling me again

i am done
with this night
i am done 
with this fight

i am going home
i am going home.
