3 poems


i have three 'poems' in the March issue of the Trof Times. the Trof Times is a free newsletter thing about Trof with interviews and listings and things in it. i imagine they have copies at Trof and other places in Manchester, probably in the Northern Quarter. i picked my one up at Picadilly records.

the 'poems' aren't new. they are 3 of the 5 things i did for the Gravity's Rainbow/Mason & Dixon chapbook with Shane Jones last year. click the picture to make it large enough to possibly read them, if they're legible. i don't know. the print might be too small:


the picture is of Micachu & The Shapes. there's an interview with them on the other page (left). i bought the Micachu album yesterday. i like it.

i looked at the Trof Times thing a couple of times, without registering that the cover has a drawing of a simile of my penis on it:


one of the 'poems' has the line 'My penis feels like a miniature swan, sat at a table, trying to polish an apple with its wings' in it. i felt very good and excited when i saw the penis simile on the cover.

i like the picture of the penis swan
i have not heard the micachu album and have been 'sceptical' of the whole thing since seeing an interview/performance of hers on some dvdzine a couple, i didn't like it.
but the reviews make it sound good

i don't know what my point is

i'm quoting what i've just seen,
exactly like commenters on youtube

"fuck it"

I now definitely want someone to illustrate a penis simile of mine. I might end up having to do this myself.
