global warmingIt gets hotter every year. I remember when we
clad ourselves in too many layers and watched
guy fawkes fireworks bloom like rust and mould
and blot out the stars with their rude, incendiary
constellations, nose-tips numb, woolly hats on
crooked. This time I might wear a t-shirt. It's not
quite t-shirt weather but fuck it, you left most of
yours here and I still like to wear them and pretend
your smell hasn't completely washed out. If it rains
I won't care; this time there isn't a rooftop to sit on.
This time I won't balance on a chimneypot, feel
higher than god, won't have my own personal
viewpoint of the city and the world won't bubble
beneath my feet like a simmering pot of stew,
the cars won't grouch and bleat and wail, and I
won't laugh at them and look at you and everything
won't be perfect. It gets hotter every year but I'm
freezing; global warming doesn't apply to empty beds
and clean sheets and rain-slick roof tiles without
bodies to warm them.
corvidaeI was a thief before I became a Magpie, but they
still call me a Songbird, and he says I'm still less than
my upbringing, but it's all semantics, semantics, you
sycophantic bastard, and either way I'm flying.
We escaped gravity wells, sticking our middle fingers
up at the viziers and all those tall ships emblazoned with
the royal blood red, weaving our way through laserfire as
thick as ice storms on the belts of Saturn.
Alpha Centauri stares out at us, our faces crushed
like dead legends-- minotaur, Cyclops, gryphon,
pinned up on plaques in palaces, glorified roadkill
all stinking of formaldehyde and shit.
