For Heathcote Williams : Anniversary Remembering The Kinky Haired Anarchist

 

 

Last Tuesday at around a quarter to ten

in the bowels of the subway-car-southbound

half-way to Brooklyn Bridge

I could hear your radical red-sexy words

as clear as singing glass

 

I waited until the twilight mammas grandpas

and freckle-assed party straphangers

slithered into the dawn

then smeared the walls

with uncensored thoughts:

 

Bastards! Bitches! Stiff-suited dull-eyed sycophants

sailing away on a celebrity gravy train 

First they fawn at your feet

then they kick you in the groin

Wasted chances with Mickey mouse orthodoxy

Trump-a-geddon is pig ugly

no more human faces just

sad shadows with dim pouched eyes

and little children caged 24/7 in

Amerika’s tender torture-land

You were right about shopping mall pimps

Big brained whales smart yellow jacketed bees

Beelzebub Boris

War-apocalyptic Autogeddon 

Property-porn daddies – magic trees

and the slow-sucking parasitic kiss of the British monarchy

Spiting truth – awakening minds

with the thunderous fuck of rebellion

Irritating those puffed up literary peacocks

in their genteel towers of

masturbatory-elitist-cultural power

A skin of light across corrupted skies

More than just a polymathic pinup

For hipster bards

You could set fire to those extremely white neo-Nazis types

with smooth- strung WORDOLOGY   

Death to coca cola!

Viva Frestoniana!

I could say a hundred and one times

THANK YOU for skinning the stinking gut of society

With bullet popping pen

 but instead I’ll remember your warm spirited hobgoblin giggle

and your poetic wisdom:

May you always be turbo charged Saira. The world has need of you. H.”
