Soulful Swede

Funkin it up,
Owning a space,
A bright star,
Appeared,
Down to Earth.
Carried
By the gravity.
Small and tiny but
Bursting with soul,
Magnetic energy,
Piercing eyes,
A special being,
Destined for heights,
The polished exterior
Hides the interior,
The source
Of the soul.
Watch it flow out.
Think I just met
A real shooting
Star.

Slam

The cell door shuts,
Just like the movies,
They don’t close quiet.
Shoe-less exploration
Of a small space.

Why’s it closing?
I made a mistake.
So I must be
Locked up
Until the morning.

Freedom means more
When it’s taken away,
My offence was car-related
My mistake never hurt
No one but me.

Even now
I write hurt
Upset at my mistake,
Upset I still remember,
Stupid choices
Made aged 20.

Stencilled quote on the wall,
Black paint on magnolia.
I can never forget,
Being locked
In a void shaped room
Where time passes
But nothing happens,
Only thoughts,
Replaying scenes
Again and again.

No words for It

Thought about It,
Should be words,
To describe
What I need to.

There are no words,
Maybe I don’t know
Enough of them,
To explain.

Tonight I saw things,
Felt too.
No letters or numbers,
Are useful right now.

Feelings were abstract,
Puddle-shaped,
Words don’t fit
Into that shaped box

I know words,
I know feelings
But today
they are divorced.

My feelings are
Hidden and unseen
Maybe you know?
Can you see It?

When did I get a cause?

Not sure,
adulthood
Came fast.
used to break
Mid-land laws,
Just for fun,
Real life came &
stopped that run.
The fight is still
for survival but
Now it’s ours,
Not mine.
So let’s ‘kick some
Ass’, then
Drink some wine.

Used to go
To late night
Stores
To buy some raws,
Now I step
Out after dark,
To give others
The tours.
When I can’t
sleep no more,
After turns
And tossing,
I do 3am walks
To famous
Zebra crossings
When no one’s about
Stopping cars
For photographs
Of themselves.

The rebel that found
A cause,
Was once without
A cause.
The energy encased
Is about the same.
Take a moment,
Stop and pause.
Where are you
Going today?
You got a cause?

Don’t like hummus

Horrible shitty hummus,
What’s the point!
Texture like crap
That it ends up being.
I’m over baby food,
I grew up.
Need more now!
Every fancy dinner party
I won’t be polite
No more.
Fuck hummus!
Pointless mush
If you think it’s a dip
You’re a dipstick
So jump in it
Til it comes out of you,
Every orifice.

Hattraction

I saw her,
But her eyes
Were on a level
above mine.

Not metaphorically,
But physically.
She was looking
At my flat cap,
Not me.
I do like my hat
So it’s ok,
Kind of.

Pool Wars of Kings Cross

Hail your new Victorious King!
Coronated with higher rights,
You saw, your own sight.
I saw your eyes,
You can’t beat me,
Your eyes gave up,
You’re not even playing!
But still play me soon,
Don’t stop trying
Winning is my divine right,
In the game I’m good at.
Don’t trust the words,
Of a silent pool player.
Find someone to test me
And see for yourself.

To win is not enough,
Embarrassing you
And your mates,
Makes me feel great!
Send you all home,
With your little tails
Between your legs.
Go home, but remember me,
Be hurt if you feel the loss!

I witness the plight,
Desperation, frustration,
pained expressions
And fear
On opponent faces,
All gets digested
In my belly
That’s my fuel.
That’s why we’ll play again
And that’s why
I’ll win.
Everytime.
