hair

Coyotes listen to their hair; a bald cadaver,
Far from being exquisite, chewing the pages
Of random books stolen from the local library, scratches
Freight car walls with a blade of the scissors
It found on a sidewalk. The train delivers the void
To the East Coast nihilists, the engineer quarrels
With the guardian angel all the way, the whistles
Fall into the sky, coyotes listen to their hair.

  1. THE BEATLES LISTENED TO THEIR HAIR
    VAMPIRIC IMMORTALS ALSO
    IMAGES OF YOU IN YOUR HONEYMOON CHAMBER
    PULVERIZING THE HARD SHELL OF YOUR CRUSTACEAN
    STRANGLED WITH BURNING KISSES AND ROUGH TONGUE
    WAS IT INSTABILITY OR LOVE ?
    I TALKED TO THE MAIDS THE NEXT DAY
    SOILED GLOVES SUGGESTED STRUGGLING PASSION
    THOSE STOLEN LIBRARY BOOKS
    EACH HAD “THE FEAR OF CONTRADICTION”
    IN THE TITLE—-A DISPARITY OF SOME NATURE
    LIVING THE SHADED SIDE OF THE STREET

    • when aliens and bearded astronauts play the beatles
      john lennon can’t recognize the tunes
      unable to perceive their faces as a manifestation of his dreams
      do the dead still dream? do the living still die?
      is it still in vogue? a flower
      spoilt by the sufis would answer

  2. the Beatles as metaphor
    for things future generations won’t comprehend – men with instruments – then
    – computers making noise & sounding like war & helicopters taking off –
    Brian Epstein as true north – taping the sound of hair growing
    the sound of molecules to many to fathom

    • As a surprise (well at least for me) sandy nelson
      A wretched pop phenomenon used to play
      Industrial music in 1960
      When i wasn’t even born yet and the aliens
      Didn’t roar as they do now:
      Bring us the head of yuri gagarin you bastards!
      What did p-orridge do in 1960 i wonder
      He certainly did something but even he
      Wouldn’t deny the fact that the priests of tiamat
      Played industrial compositions more sophisticated
      Than his annual reports millennia before sandy nelson
      Before scriabin
      Before russolo
      So perhaps all the future generations
      Hide in the slavery of the past

      • industrial music
        the sound of robots fighting
        petty arguments about circuit boards – unplugged robots as dust collecting ornaments – no divorce
        just take them apart and sell for scrap
        – impound yards for unclaimed heads
        – I’ve seen p-orridges gristle
        – Yuri Gagarin opened a block of flats in my home town – strange scenes of the late 60s –
        cosmonauts surveying the architecture of modernity –
        – the annual reports notice a downturn, a
        distinct cut off point between suicide and malaise

        • THE SOUND OF GRINDING COGWHEELS FROM THE BEDROOM
          ———-I HEAR YOU THINKING ABOUT THE SECRET
          HIDDEN IN THE TITANIC—————
          ——————————————————————————————-
          ——————————————————————————————-
          WHY DID THOSE WACKY EDEN PEOPLE END THEIR RELATIONSHIP
          WITH GOD ?
          DID THEY WANT TO BE EQUALS—POSSIBLY BROTHER AND SISTER ?
          SLAVES TO A FORCE THAT ORCHESTRATES TRAGEDIES ?
          SLAVES TO EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS ?

          • the secrets hidden inside the titani was that it carried a replica of the ark in its hull
            – double animals
            – double fantasy the Beatle king is everywhere
            – the secret buried beneath salty waters
            – rubber boats float towards shires or animal bones
