Touch Screen

Pub has four doors. Two cold, one above leads to the Arctic, the other below to the Antarctic. The left hand door leads to the hot Western Desserts of icecream mountains and cookie crevasses, the right hand door to the warm Eastern Aperitifs of Lychee Lakes and Squid forests.

The proprietor of Touch Screen is Trans. A person who is always on the way to somewhere else. Some folk say Trans is asexual, others know better. When you talk to Trans the eyes are always somewhere else. Ask Trans directions and the place you knew is never the same. Everyone is a different person after the conversation.

Trans collects clocks and places them all over the pub. Trans has removed all their hands so no one can see what time it is. They are circles of numbers without sound. No tick and tock to sup to. Trans uses the old cliche when folk ask what the time is. Trans says “Time you got a watch.” Strangely, in this place
time on mobiles and tablets disappears and access to websites telling the time is blocked. Trans shrugs delicate shoulders.

Steady orbits around the walls dwarf stars shine into drinks. A horsehead nebula pulses above the pool tables. Occasionally a black hole forms and players pot lights that annoy them, in hope gravity will do its worst. Here you drink to get sober. Broken glass clarity makes blood bubble beside beery eyes.

All hands kept in a cupboard can pinpoint the second they were orphaned from their face.

Steady orbits around the walls clocks shine into drinks. A horsehead dial pulses above the pool tables. Occasionally a keyhole forms and drinkers pot numbers that annoy them in hope time will do its worst. Here you revolve to stay still. Broken face clarity makes doors bubble beside ice cream eyes.

Clocks collect owners and places themselves all over the pub. Clocks remove all their owners hands so no one can see what time it is. Owners are faces without sound. No tic or tac to sup to. Clocks use the old cliche when folk ask what the time is. Clocks say “Time you got a face.” Strangely, in this place
Faces on mobiles and tablets disappear and access to websites telling about faces are blocked. Clocks shrug delicate shoulders.

The proprietor of Trans is Touch Screen. A way who is always on the way to someone else. Some folk say Touch Screen is asexual, others know better. When you talk to Touch Screen the somewhere else is always else. Ask Touch Screen directions and the same you knew is never the place. The conversation is a different person after everyone.

Trans pub has four faces. Two cold, one below leads to the Arctic, the other above to the Antarctic. The left hand face leads to the hot Western Desserts of icecream mountains and cookie crevasses, the right hand face to the warm Eastern Aperitifs of Lychee Lakes and Squid forests.

MY HELIXSONG

helixsongs http://t.co/gCdJA4MbmI on #SoundCloud

use my pliable limbs
wish while tying me
into a loose knot
your wish granted
return untie the knot
you made of me

I am first to arrive
last to leave
bind your Ash stave,
Birch twigs

scrape my furrowed
white barkskin
reveal my tenderflesh
boil it and drink
to unfurrow your brow

let me bind your floodwaters
let cranes nest in my limbs
where your blood whispers
