The Day of the Dead

I want to return to Mexico and
Live the day of the dead
Light candles and wear skull makeup
Sit all that night by the grave of myself
Place a burning torch see its light die in the morning
Smell the embers of my life and
Scratch amongst them with a stick
Poke at my life until I find a reason for it
See the glow from the hotspots if any remain
Then I can leave
Then I can release
This vanity that keeps me here

“The first person who, having enclosed a plot of land, took it into his head to say this is mine and found people simple enough to believe him was the true founder of civil society. What crimes, wars, murders, what miseries and horrors would the human race have been spared, had some one pulled up the stakes or filled in the ditch and cried out to his fellow men: “Do not listen to this imposter. You are lost if you forget that the fruits of the earth belong to all and the earth to no one!”

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Traffic

The clutter of the world
Is destroying my mind
Too much information
Not enough truth
And then there is change
Lumens!
Watt the Fuck is Lumens?
Watts’s watt 39, 40, 60
Then out into the traffic
I’m a part of this chaos
I want to stay home
I want to go out
But it proves difficult
My hand shakes
It pulses while writing
All this movement
Burns holes in my emotions
I’m on fire
Nothing will calm me
Nothing satisfies my
Involvement
Turning left
Turning right
No direction
Takes me nowhere
Rasputin plays in the café
While I sit with coffee
And almond croissant
Is this song allowed now?
Money that is cash to park the car
Or call on your phone
Don’t take photos of
The conversation area
More of a do as you’re told area
Dogs strain to eat the scraps off the floor
I feel as if I am doing the same
No heating on
No lights on
Trapped on the edge of eternity
My desires unfulfilled
My life unfulfilled
What have I achieved?
What has been the point of all this desire?
My escape route is unquenching
It’s degrading to my heart
And my soul if there is such a thing
Is fallen and a false critic
Of all that my upbringing told me
Was right and what was wrong?
Falling
Failing
Flaying
Flapping
Where I once believed I was flying

When you can hear the wind

When you can hear the wind
Inside your head
Is it because you are alive
Or is it because you are dead
But its probably the opposite
To what you think
And the other way around
To what you feel

Saint Crispin’s Day

I’m trying to come to terms
With the end of days
I’m on the Steps of winter
I’m trying to get my ever doubtful head around it.
But there really is no doubt.
Everything hurts.
Restless
Always restless
Questioning it all
making decisions then changing
them the next second
lie in bed
get out of bed
The challenge is relentless.
Saint Crispin’s day
I am a Martyr to my Thoughts
Slain by time.
Why am I still here?
because you survived
How did I get this a old?
Because you Survived?
Its cold where I am headed,
and I cant even take
my big coat

Holbrook’s was the highest-selling Worcestershire sauce in the world. It still holds the majority of the Worcestershire sauce market in Australia. The English Midlands was rapidly displacing London as the centre of the British malting and brewing industry by the 1860s.
William Daniel Holbrook was appointed as manager of the Manchester sales branch in 1874. From 1875 the company began to manufacture pickles and sauces, such as Worcestershire. Holbrook enjoyed a strong reputation in the trade, and the company branded these new products under his name.
