There’s always time to listen…Friday Oct. 18, 2014 / Colchester, UK #SchwervonPoetry

Awesome merchandise
Troublesome meaningless transactions
The questions of life
are much easier to answer
When you are a moving target

Pickled piccolos
Alarm clocking
Soft distant oboes

Dog stockings
Sliced vine ripe tomatoes
Smeared runny makeup face
On a crusty nub of peasant bread

Rubber shoes sloshing in the brain
The blood flows through your neck
like warm sauce

Copping on the train
Things have a way
And then they get in the way

I’ll speak to the customer
You speak to the man Chester
And the man will speak to you

There’s always time to listen
So plug your ears and get to it

 (This poem was originally recited at Lakeside Theatre on October 17, 2014 in Colchester, UK)
