Sleep Before You

after listening to will oldham





                   sphinctum rip


        roaring shadow play :


sibilant removal company

at work on canalised

menace terrains


on slippery figures tapping up

hippocampus employees


                incorporated whole hog


waterhole just as               into hissed


               by experimenting

     with smaller peristalsis


dazed or dais or dialled in


mind control full


no places:


the flying horse


loft homes



versions:    when listen ferris


            it’s the chicken

            twists the bell



the light and water carrier worrier


no point

closing with

the bone raid


the sentenced careerist     well


magnesium for sleep

hugs for the meet
