Rock The Boat

Recent news coverage made me wish I'd headed up to Edinburgh this week for the G8, Live8 bugged me, 'scream louder to make poverty history' planted in me a massive desire to smash stuff up. anyways here's my thoughts on the whole thing...

leap in your enclosed golden world
the redemption congratulates you
itself
raining down from heavenly skies.

a pat on the head
for the nearest
real-live-african
explodes you inside
in a bloodbath of bleeding hearts

draining into the mud.

summer's time

summer's time jumps, erratic
miles of stones, stepping like bridges;
each-quickening-faster-to-the-day
than the last

sit back down and relax

you're rocking the boat.
