Basquiat & Hendrix. An Audio Text Poem by Robin Ouman Hislop


 
 

Basquiat  &  Hendrix    you were cheated
out of life by mortals    it wasn't what
you gave   but what they took  as if
you could get high on that poison
they fed you
they didn't leave you an exit
once they'd locked you in
to show what you'd got
				they snatched the hoard
				& lit the building 
with you in 			but you didn't know
how to walk away
they were still your gods
you'd shot down to the providence
where you sought them         where they took you in
ritualised to a myth that sucked 
played you                            that hand that spun to win
where you put your foot in your mouth       sold you out

Cell was here. An Audio Text Poem by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 
 

 

CELL
was here
was
was
was
was
was
here here  here  CELL here here
here
	was here was was was was 

you are just a simulation
& i am 10 to the power bleep 
a simulation more than you
let me cast you the pearls of fate
the entropy of entelechy
resource the body electric 
engraved as epitaphs
on the sacrificial altar's axe
fossilised hominoid chop chop suey

CELL was here  CELL was here

Dark Sea An AudioTextualPoem by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 

                                                                 

                                                                  Dark Sea

What can steal on the march of time

time that has passed time that is to come

on the dark sea of matter

within & without

gravitating       gravitating       gravitating

language is barely sufficient for it

in our mortal transit

in a universe which is forever a phantom face

its unresolved visitations

                                                  touched & untouched

                                                                          my cat mind                    my dog mind

as different as                                      chalk & cheese

it calls for a comment on our mysterious cosmos

in its great indifference to us

which we inhabit rather miraculously more than

the mere mathematics of matrix & fractal

but as self regulating networks together

with the brainless networks

where we may spread our membranous wings

& harvest angels on the dark sea                            within & without

A Show. An Audio Textual Poem by Amparo Arróspide


 
A SHOW
 
You may see her
but not touch her
listen to her undulating hips
crave for her belly-button
and hope she lands flop on you lap
but she won´t
 
there’s glittering and sparkling,
the veils that she unveils
(mind you, not all all like removing the scales of a dragon
or plucking a hen)
 
her whispers, giggles, jewels
wax and wane
Yet don’t insects dance?
Could this girl be a mantis?
Or is she just an expert
hypnotist?
 
Cymbals, ear-rings, bracelets
to create suspense,
you may wonder and crave
but she won’t

The Hunter. Audio Text Poem by Amparo Arróspide Read by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 

 
The Hunter
(Villanelle)
 

Fear, a throbbing fear, as fiercely white
as the forest snow I roam while all sleep,
And over my tracking boots there was moonlight
Over my drunken steps, only her orbit
 
As white as anguished snow and the forked path
to the castle where my fate had been decreed:
“You will bring me her heart”
And looked at the moving distaff turn
–her face I couldn´t see, perhaps abominable–
And over my tracking boots there was moonlight
Over my drunken steps, only her orbit
 
How pale the child was, her heart in throbbing fear
As snow melted away for wolves and dens,
The forest snow I roam while all sleep,
And over my defeat now only moonlight
And over my drunken steps, only her orbit
