The Ogre’s of Miro’s Childhood: Running on the Inch Button

Andrew Darlington has had numerous written works published in all manner of strange and obscure places, magazines, websites, anthologies and books. He also worked as a Stand-Up Poet on the Alternative Cabaret Circuit and has been interviewed by many people from the worlds of Literature, Science-Fiction Fantasy, Art and Rock-Music for a variety of publications.

A selection of my favorite interviews collected into The Headpress Book, I Was Elvis Presley’s Bastard Love-Child. My latest poetry collection is Tweak Vision by Alien Buddha Press, while my new fiction collection A Saucerful Of Secrets is now available from Parallel Universe Publications.

The Ogre’s of Miro’s Childhood: Running on the Inch Button

As of now, we are
following the phosphorescent
trails of snails, jazz-frantic
through psychopathic weed.
You splashed lurid in spray-paint, & me
sprouting a forest of aerials and mirrors.
Looking at you, I know
you can freeze gravity
without the sensory assistance
of touch, with just your pout

We chase the same poems, you & I,
they just wear different words
and get scrambled through different
dogs-eye views of TV screen images

As of now, you are,
admit it, Nefertiti, and tonight I’m
eyesore from epileptic cello bop
And Department Store Decadents.
Leeds could pass for the city of the dead,
as we roll down streets made faceless
by the metal-fatigued flatness
of shop-shutters. Chain-whipped
by a confusion of voices,
& street-lamps that throw
pools of light at nothing

You’re now
the Mad Scientist’s beautiful daughter, &
I cut through the skeletons of buildings,
the victim of the night, and,
as of now,
we follow the phosphorescent
trails of snails through the
ogre’s of Miró’s childhood,
bare feet crunching
on broken glass
