1st July 2016

An example of the 'cut up' poetry style by iopan. The concept can be traced to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularized in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs.

The Supermodel’s Nosebleed
I put out my rice in the same day
Reminders of men waited to be let into the male
There was so much snow now as able in the centre of the tent
Upon legions objects: a prayer flag; an oil differently do you think
You should Shiva; an ohm in brass; a mandala; even taking anything else?
How are menorah; Islamic tiles from Egypt or own who you work for – and I know liver bells; a crucifix in silver; a five-die of jade the entire ground floor make cuts to close the entrance to glass window the window that’s end
‘Masculinity’ nobody spoke is the differences between the sexes? I then you’ve poisoned me my mind is the feeling of sadness and me angel what do I do? Such a autumn most plants had started pleasure
Heart beating a rapid asks English and sparkling water was sinful harmonies
Ecstasy last longer of the previous visitors were still was about how to remove blood
A large marquis was set up in the re the noise – and the object that is fuller tents. I slipped inside one of space? Called Alaska these cold as snow cigarette feeling a little guilty a row of and everyone says you’ve been acting counselling room.
There was a round increase your medication? Have you the table there was arranged various are you sleeping? Everybody says so I kin candle with flouting wick; a statuette of what you really are a model of the Blessed Virgin Mary; a you’re not human – I know that much Syria with beautiful script-work; tiny hell pointed star in matt-black; a rosary ma fierce winds burn from here to the plan of the house had been destroyed by fire breaking
I’m sick of you putting words in my mo the men sat in a circle and contemplated is being controlled by you! O speak to we simply too immature to reflect upon high price to pay for such a momentary think the Japanese have a word for it. It rhythm face flushed eyes dilated nostalgia that accompanies the arrival of if only I could make that moment of ego walking – some birds have started to sped singing at various pitches; making beautiful we were at my grandmother’s house.
Shadows some people call them echoes garden – there were various other same n the Beat living room the discussion stains from the hands – and then: how a implied by the noise related in terms of space.

I don’t feel it yet, but it’s in the post

20th March 2016

A dissonant poem with two quatrain stanzas, ending in an elongated tercet.

Text

I don’t feel it yet, but it’s in the post
Beautiful moment when skin is open, rich layer Of breathing fat shock Dots of blood’s red warmth and then The flow
Minutes upon minutes Radio competitions Nervous smelling of smoke Vomit on breath happened ten minutes ago Just coffee
What to do? It’s not the answer. Meditation, Creative output Helps fragmented Mind Talk to you, increase medication, take More pills
