TRUDGING HOME SPRINGS BACK FROM THE FUTURE. EXCESSES IN TRIPLICATE. ALMOST HUMAN

1

Trudging home springs back from the future. About a hunnerd and fifty years of excruciating detail. The psycho physics of the thing. It is amazing. It gasped. Economic tears for the derivation. The transition is quite a character. A lazy weekend comes to its senses, extends its palms, exchanges pen pushing for three chances to meet up with an awkward passage. In the short time it takes to exit, slight panics and changes some of the weather. Gain time, lose time, all swamped with occasion. Purple flowers up, delighted in portention. Intends from leather straps, a temporary retreat. Furious clenches in fevered intelligence.

Booked up to take leave. First blog to your right, exit over the pop-up.

Judiciously exhibit the real.
Chaperone the passage from Chaucer.
Viruses opened their eyes wide.
Immediacy instilled a surge of goodwill.
Re reciprocity is jus' lookin' for parkin'.
Dark eyes blazing gunshots over the OK.
Colours whipped all around.
The other day is questioned. Highly is likely.
Obviously is in charge of the investigation.
Utterance, apotheosis. And thee.
Self sacrifices into the. Forces a smile.
Simplicity. The dispassionate honestly.

Move back to a neutral corner. Knocked out.

Whole alphabet dragged through the hedge, arse backward. Fences and doors. Mystery is always left clueless. Wilderness receives a custodial sentence. How fascinating notices. Brackets of croquet. Almost a Unicorn. Nearly a piracy. Chain of command and a peacock. Just think of that, Hedda. Call-back facility and let the silence. Quite a large number in various combinations. Nuances.

No content. No comment.

Trips back to the old spot. Being here
(In the first place) rearranging geography.

ALL and WHOLE.

Definitely there, balancing on the parallel.
"How curiously it twists."

2

Eternal springs through delineation. Hatched and coloured. The surface frozen, means tested. Restoring the characteristics and scoped. Fittings and fixtures put in a nightshift. But always in and under the burdens worth having. Big operator thieving and fiddling the dolorous. Traffic of fraught, shivering aesthetics. Yes. And mollifying smiles of the Borgias. Infinity is cordially introduced to Armeggedon. Shake hands, sports and come out fightin'.

Astonished as hell strolls through the countryside.

In comprehensible as limit and amusing receivers. Discovery consulting the prospects, lingers on emphasis. Believe stretched past hierarchical divisions. Paper weights on all
of the jotters. Main points to the contact. Miles and kilometres of hunt the jackal. The perfect stillness. End over end on the courtyard, cousin. Elementary as.

Enchanting and filtered.
Acknowledge the conductor.
Rearrange the score.
So pacing. So "sighing deeply".

A disobedient curve answers a liability.

Face up to it more,
before reassembling.
As good as an afternoon break.

Did you say fawn?

When something is happening.

Procedures
are t racing
the f as t t rack.
Excess es
in triplicate.
G am u t,
cool,
pristine,
well bred
environment,
trussed up
in taking
its time.

Pauses at globalisation and that cup of coffee, indeed.
The most thorough of briefings, comrade.

3

Charming, not loss of trial, but nature of bristling distraction.
The One to Come. Hirsute beside me now, and so on the courtly.

Ah…no…(Just as well… I shudders to think.)

Dial-up small mercies, too much. And a very good thing.
Excellent. Clutter up organisation, un, precedent meditation.

Illation,
intermediate
frequency,
wondering,
about the
source of that.
Im(p)agination.
Delectable,
audibly immersed
in upwards and find.

4

Still framed, Will. Message still applicable. Still life.

So sweet, almost human.
Quiet. Silent and curious.
Serious about the game.
Utilises the whole deck.

Recognise one at the pool table.

All the same,
pretty scary.

The New Romanticism.

The fourth hand.
Dangerous fragility.

Disorientated, following inkprints.

5

Remember how it started,
far cry and reaction.

Remember how it all ended, hardening of wings.

Hovering over myriad passings.
Eyebrows raised in exacerbation.
Stun the day with researches.
Delighted, folded quietude and thousands.
Prefixed the assassins. Twiceturn stiles,
winding sheets welcome, the age of contrast.
Best cinematography of all time.
Try it in nostalgia. Any absence
discovers corners. Co-ordinates.
External heart compression. Beats.
Compelled to engage. Paper quality.

Captured. and as re/marked, fell.
& worth repeating. How they fell.

Respect and expectation. Warm.
Do stacked imprints tinting the tablets.
Do shade the equilibrium & pray the pith.
Do thousands yearly & oranges common.
Do the detoured epoch, close or open.
Do feeling better? More focussed?
Do up the chuff and very connect.
Do shift the particular and conjure.

Beginning. Put up a good font.

Green grow the rushes in company.
Sovereignty speaks, hunched over
wonder. Wonder is kneading the clay.
Lost, found, lecture & persuade.
Untwisting cords on the lyre.
All of the seasons, triangled.
Four speaker quadrophonics.
The palindromic tail's tale.

Stops with the removal/insertion of

        
"
Someone is whispering.
        "

6

No body there. Nobody to play war and peace.
Premium fresh illusions. Integrity and rights.
Volcanoes belch roses, precarious surmise.
A million quid in the kitty. The dollar signs.
"Provocat, et tollit pendentis…
One thousand brushes the curator's metaphor.
All you ever wished for descending in order.

What was it you wished for?

Plenty of always/never fails to amaze,
quality comments made of the sterner stuff.
Definitely, puzzled, extract & crumple it.
Fat Rimbaud's umbrella. Margaret's mouth.
Is? Pass me the boundless. The Ever-Newer.
Palimset comes with its own instructions.

Pal, im set for the wrench. Hand me the spanner.

7

Glancing through the back page. The spirit.
Base of the neck. So he thought, daV. Delicate.

8

Spring tides flood into the Old Man. Fair climb to the top.


9

Mingling
convergence
with riding it.

Gift and a present.
Expected quarter,
breathing in cold air.

Distance. Sea.

Rhythmic, deep.
Light. over the maps.
Zigzags. and. All ways.

Thousands of volts.

10

Midweek
evening
at ease with
constraints
on the soul.

If it's fitting, it fits.
