Distance dissolves
into dissonance
in grey-dawn
daylight,

A plaintive
picture painted
with dust
and the rains
which run rivers
of rust
through nowhere-roads

Ad Nauseum:

Static-sick
and stuck
in a circle-loop rut
like hemp
caught tight
around collars

Strung up
on the Tyburn Tree
and left
with the crows

Of revenance.

Project2010: 055 of 375 (February 14th)



This is a piece that is certainly not going to conform with the two major themes of the day.

It's a little something composed quickly about routine, ruts, and London. The Tyburn triangle was an innovative gallows that could execute 24 people at once, if needed, and was situated where the Marble Arch now stands.

The Tyburn itself was a tributary stream that is now completely covered over from source to outflow into the Thames; it's one of London's lost rivers.

There's probably too many "x the" examples in the piece, which makes it a likely candidate for future revision.

It probably could do with a bit of going over, in time. For now, though, I'm fond of it; it doesn't feel forced.

Yeah, it fell together rather seamlessly.

This:
"Static-sick
and stuck
in a circle-loop rut
like hemp

around collars"


I might even suggest (from a position of general ignorance) that you separate the above from the line that precedes it?

But oh. Something about the idea of the lost river, and ruts of ground dust - it stuck.
