in situ

some boot shaped state…old factories delapidated behind overgrown evergreen hedging….here they make strange, disgusting meals…mobile snackbars… industrial carrion… i slipped out of the dream into a backlot for secret driving lessons…errant children run along the front like tropes…decoy devices…hooks…what answers the pantheistic spirit guides sing back to us in the carnage of our trade…crushed garbage […]

“under a sod”

“man does not get what he deserves but he gets what he resembles” Jaz Coleman – Killing Joke 1985 in the living room we switch on the bright main light….the carpet is crawling with black insects….too many to collect and dispose of before they a scurry away…it’s almost like they have developed a bite but […]

Of course it looked like leisure time during breaks but this was effective production in down-time. All night TV sessions crammed into broom cupboards…the game never stopped. All this for backlog and admin. […]

He was building a nest. Ran back to default he pulled together all that was said and done. This way he could re-enact it as it happened. Old streets, old morning streets… We were landlocked, not yet to take off downriver… It was a test of sorts.  Testing water…testing the defences… of what would happen […]
