decrepit post-soviet
train stations

fibrous body hair
and not body hair
pressed into rat king

tanging like salt&
vinegar sweat smell

crowdsurfing(a carriage clutz)
like homelessness
in hungary.

 

tanging//

rawling

 

i am a cluttering train
i am c
rowding, pouring onto
platforms in zagreb

petrich\or stinks of
mustard gas And you

 

 
are somme clay, clogging
like a boot Hoisted

 

 
from a Fishpond in a
bombCrater.

you’ve beCwm a cesspo\ol
in europe, a mountain LLLake
from teccctonic political movement.

i loved your sanndy hair:::


:::you used to nearlywear it to
your shoulders - thicker
than syria, coarser thann 
afghannistann,
you anti-cobainn, 
you fringe sitter.
you wondered if opiates would make you sleep better.
mum didn't.                   you chose acupunncture
to tap into northern rock and relieve the recession.
                                                  dad was redunndannt, you
                                 said it felt like being coerced into vodk
                                                                       a a

                                          after a couple of rounds of gulf

tapping a tomahawk on the table
in mcdonnalds, with an illegal hangover,
you used to begrudgingly re-explainn

how it feels to kick a sixth former(
                                    the boxinngmann in the taxi, pulp 
                                    fictionn that you watched a few
                                    days earlier, like throwingasteam
                                    trainfromacruisemissilelauncher
)or why you listen to nnirvanna.

you were pre-june
before riot insecurity.

you were therrre before anyone had canncer.
you were therrre before i cut my haiir.

oh america,
how is the weather in france?
did you visit the eiffel tower
and get croissant on your lips?
i did not think you’d look
like this. oh la liberté, oh

 

how that copper must
feel pressed against her. is
freedom ever anything more
than to be free to love her?

 

 

oh america, my dear, all
things rust within a year.
i wish they’ll tarnish well
for you. promise you’ll
keep france near.

 

promise not to be a brut like me.

 

yours sincerely,
lovingly

england
