These Islands

These islands are scored and

scarred with geometric shapes, the

meaning of which we merely

guess at, full of fantasies.

 

These islands have buried somewhere

more bodies than now live, their

lives as impenetrable as the

mist over their fields.

 

These islands are full of people who

jostle the ghosts, don’t see them

hanging in hedges like cobwebs,

swept from their houses like spiders.

 

These islands are full of strange angles,

unnatural mounds, stones pitched from

horizontal to vertical behind which

someone, at some time, hid.

Eris/Eros

It’s my palette, you know—
night-wet streets, neon cycling
red, white, red, blood
black as cola—but rather spoilt by the
blue flashes of the rozzers,
sharper than usual, so I sigh,
slide off through the throng, the
thrill making my thong chafe.

It’s so easy setting strife in Soho,
just like Athens or Aulis,
Mycenae or Melos, but with
mobile phones, forever filming me as the
boys do the knife dance (my favourite),
the girls scream so charmingly and the
photographers find their frames
funnily empty where I should be.

I shimmy across Piccadilly Circus,
glancing at that grotesque statue:
Eros? His tedious brother, more like!
Unselfish Love? Boring Fuck. No,
Eros is elsewhere, down-river:
I can smell the burnt air from his
missiles and miss his
chubby insolence.

Haymarket is quiet, the theatres dark, but the
beacon on Parliament burns bright,
division bells are ringing in
pubs and restaurants: the
hunt is up and I can sense that
sweet slut dogging me,
drawn to the easy meat of
lonely men and lonely women.

Bells still, the beacon extinguished and a
pallet of Parliamentarians spews out: those
shivering about a spot of blood
are mine, whilst those
turgid or wet are welcome to my
coy friend winking at me from the
shadow of the gateway, already
speed-dialling the tabloids.

No time to trans-shape, but the
low-cut top and the ultra
short skirt will do—a bit
jail-bait, but when has that
ever been a problem?
It’s easier if they think the
body of a goddess has the
mind of a child.

I remember the Melians
arguing with dry throats; the
Trojan women wondering if their walls were
high enough for suicide; the
Athenians cooped in that quarry in
Syracuse, starving—it’s so
erotic hearing people beg when
beggings of no use.

At dawn, palate sated, we meet and
dance down deserted Westminster Bridge,
love and hate in that
eternal erotic clinch,
Eros pinching my bum as I
slap and laugh and twirl,
loving London so empty of
everything but possibilities.

Moon Town

The Moon made a ghost town amidst the

fractured clouds, full of bright streets and

brilliant corners but made up of

blank-faced tenements, gutted, slack-jawed,

full of foul memories and fissured with

unlit alleyways I was desperate to explore, for

down one dark dead-end I knew you were

waiting, alone and shivering and

unrequited.
