Caught short in Dream Doors,

a noodle-speciality-cum-guarana bar,

she made an excuse for

her lacking liquidity;

something about her boyfriend’s

2CV obsession,

the politics

of cash vs plastic

(not being what it used to be)

and agreed with the intern

that, damn right,

YOU CALL IT PROFESSIONAL FOOTING

I CALL IT DRIVEL-MAKING

YOU CALL IT MONEY FOR OLD ROPE

I CALL IT EMBELISHMENT

YOU CALL IT CONGLOMERATE

I CALL IT CAR PARK

YOU CALL IT OUTCRY

I CALL IT BALD PATCH

YOU CALL IT YOUTH TEAM

I CALL IT ACNE

YOU CALL IT BRAND

I CALL IT BOREDOM

I heart Hackney

with all my spleen

I’m no I’m no no I’m no no no

Sneaky Joe I never knew

what did trim the fat from that Kingsland Road roadkill

we skinned and keelhauled

over sizzle-peel oil drum

sucked and shaved it all in one sitting

one night in Waterloo arches.

a river

bark to bark a sawdusty film

the earth tilts timber to groan downstream

cut to

oil frying

old timers peeling Maris Pipers

cardigans and coats rest on the back of chairs

cut to

wooden forks

tomato sauce

the last bus home

elegy (in memory of victor esteban celeiro)  / bruno neiva / 2014

Empty Mirror

June 2014



elegy (in memory of victor esteban celeiro) 

 

noir coffee spilled over the newspaper

we talked for hours, jobless hours

 

about borders, coups and the icelandic landscape

jef costello was brought into the conversation,

 

combed hair and smart suit – holding a gun,

bluish stare over greyish glare  

 

the talk went on at full tilt,

it was writ large all over us

 

that old films and faraway countries

wouldn’t bring us any new prospects

 

(though there’s no denying that hugo

barrett has set a table before us sometime in 63)

Listen.

Remember.

doing the commercial part

looking forward

to give a good puff

a national epic

quite so

Surely –

But.

So you think.

A journal –

Will you please?

off and out,

a silhouette

a daylit mocker

on the immense corner:

aloud – a telegram

List!

a forecast

Lifted. Laughed.

deep spitting

in the air

a button

over all the rest:

things that are not,

they are still.

I understand.

Thanks.
