Spent today working on my next solo chapbook – Clutches of Love – due out early February…
Here is a Boxing Day taster to whet your appetite.
At the looking glass rotunda
In the centre of the city
I saw you
Of covering smoke
I saw you
Slipping off sideways
Thin through the mirror’s edge
Disappearing from sight
A new ocassional Flash Fiction Series from Bella Basura
Dream Theme One
In my dream about Thurston Moore it was night, I was up by the Co-op convenience store roundabout and all around there was this strange snow piled everywhere, like great banks of crunchy white snow – it was like some scene from a movie.
So I took my coat off, laid it down and began sledding through tunnels in the snow on my coat. Suddenly Thurston Moore was beside me and we were streaming through these glistening snow tunnels on my coat, laughing, O we were laughing, really laughing.
Eventually as we’re approaching the telephone box at the end of my street we began to slow. And there are smears of brown on the pristine snow. I look down and it is dog shit and my coat sleeve is dragging in dog shit and Thurston Moore disappears.
And I have to walk home alone in a blizzard in my torn and dog shitted coat.
