Numbed to the Procedure

                              © Jaya Suberg

Lifeless and limp..
the warm blood
of a bloated body
hangs heavy
in our hands

Animal sacrifice
to be plucked
for a feast

Survival mechanism
necessary to the tongue..
the gods will understand

numb to the grave
numb to the bone
numb in the stomach

numb is the cycle of carnage

-by  Scott Thomas Outlar

Sober Again

                           © Miguel Angel Ferreiros

She sings

"Don’t be so reckless"

And at the top of her
Wet soggy shirt
Her old
Boob falls out

I leant her 30 cents for the
Pay phone.

She put the money
In the phone,
Hangs up

Moves to the other side of the room
And puts the money in her
Pink dressing gown pocket.

She comes and sits back down on the
Couch and we watch Australian idol
People drink coffee and the pay phone never rings.

Happiness is Hard

                                    © Janne Karlsson

I want to write but I’m
Too damn happy.
Sure, I’m depressed and
I have a shit job and
I haven’t seen a payrise
Since before we all saw
Kim Kardashian’s cunt
But I’m happy,
And it’s hard

I need to be able to write
Without the dove-shit white
Page gradually turning black
I’ve no way to let the
Beast out.  The madness out.
My condition will remain caged,
Locked up and prowling
Inside of me, eating
Whatever’s left of my soul

the hands are claws,
oyster-cloying genitals of beasts

we are wards of space
like rock’n roll
bound for the unconscious-

destroyers of practical
the hands melt down,

physics scowl,
dreams, molten lava
and music-

given you got
can’t match Resurrection or

prepubescent hard-ons, amongst
the awkward dust of the
Tonka truck.
