Some Sketches --- (from 'the roving eye')



(…eye of clear eye of wishful eye of bled eye of focused eye excretion eye of turning eye of bleeding eye reclaimed eye of following eye of the recede eye of nothing eye of all eye alack eye of breath eye of sun’s light eye egg eye bollock eye of silver eye sliced across know eye have forgotten eye eye of sunken eye a-dream eye of rot eye of cataract of eye of silenced eye eye eye roving in the darkness of I…)


---


…from out of step/ the roving eye/ occluded/ in the meld of skull and ash/ snapped/ the deep red of meat of and the quivering hand/ stretched out a vast landscape of nothing/ mocked alight/ what matter/ stillness in the cracked lung’s bellowing here now or forever the break/ broke silence silentee/ absentee/ words cataracts of the roving eye’s stillness/ bled or no/ from out of step/ (step alone)/ yet ever vast the appeal of semblance/ nothing more of it/ traceless the eye’s whisperings…


---


…steel-held in incommunicable lights/ eye foreign/ desolate the eye unknowing/ given to reach/ a subtle collapse of boundary/ perhaps a stairwell/ eye cascades into the dark once more/ heaves then nothing/ brittle the bone break of shadowing/ locked to the cortex of some violent disregard/ headless yes/ head of powdered blood/ no terror in all terror of/ blindness/ yes or no…


---

 

…pupil of death pupil sky of black/ lessened as if to disregard/ step one the eye cannot step other than once/ in gleam of burnished steel/ the vapours rise up to skin the eye’s recall/ a deft wind/ caress of/ bleak light silenced lights utter dark/ unsettled/ some mask some collapse of/ (as if to pluck it out)/ the roving eye garrotted/ the eye turns inwards/ into all the solace of a coffin full of/ shit…


---

 

…dry them/ set aside/ set them aside/ a mortuary silence/ clasped forgotten/ eye of this or that or of the want of/ broken bodies of words and the claim of eye upon them/ less or more/ the words warp in an open palm/ the eye abandons/ sleeps in drunk ditch silences/ through the speech of the pulse/ locked under/ murmurs from the depths…


---

 

…piss-rake and the solace of skinned earth/ buried somewhere or other/ yet ever night/ a candle lit in silent bankruptcy upon a corpse/ eye recalls/ registers none/ aches/ roving all the while/ some distancia/ bled out with tears to follow/ yet opening out the skyline/ subtle then/ until foreign/ knocked upon without answer/ speech worse than dead…


---

 

…rove/ rove away/ the reflection in/ seen/ dry lock of furtive breathless/ as the eye breathes also/ some dusts/ yes/ a plague of desire and the given flesh of/ oceanic/ rock-a-bye/ the distant bones of the inward looking eye/ birthing no solace/ the bind tight of wire and scuttling escaping blood/ for which forever there will be a taste… 


---





 …(eye unrelated chasm, it whispers)…




---


…the frozen cracked eye/ no marrow in/ through/ give or taken/ dissolves then/ gouged by speech or the of until/ laid to rest/ the roving eye will ever seed the night with acrid colours/ some scattering of broken glass/ perhaps/ some solace neither/ never forgotten/ ashen walls of drought/ concaving in/ flexed/ headless but for the/ obliterate of ice/ dead pelts/ eye/ I/ nothing claimed/ the crux is the filament of/ settled/ never settled/ dissolves then/ in sleep never ceasing…
 


---

 

…and so to the bones of the eye/ none less for tomorrows/ blood-flecked/ the eye teeth-baring unto the grip of flesh/ the none of it/ embers to taste/ shattered the pupil gazes as if to/ not a sound visible/ in the casket unseen of the silenced/ stone upon stone upon nothing/ raking the excrement of/ till taste of ash recedes it cannot recede/ the eye pisses upon itself/ it is never redeemed…
