# 1,600: in england

we call a spade
a fucking spade

hide our monkey parts in the bath
in case anyone walks in

dilate pores over the green sheen
of sprout steam

take antecedent to spring
dr samuel carter’s miracle anti-ageing elixir of youth

watch the balding boys get on the bus

tracking crackles into focus

branding barber
studying footage of the one-legged invincible black knight

soaking still scraping the gravy dish
black as oil from railway sleepers

running brook    same    as running brook 926AD

careers selling cigs to kids
or chief squealer at the pig-initiation class
