Confessions 1.5


Forgive me Father for I have sinned

Today I spent three quarters of an unpleasant hour at the laundromat

It was terribly cold

I was grateful when the machine’s cycle finished

So that I could get dressed again and leave


Almost one year.


I walked down the stairs yawning sleep and rubbing my eyes.

While he cocked his leg against a tree on the other side of the street, I looked at the full moon and wondered why a riot police van was still parked in the square

It’s been there since January, I bet they’re tired.

Je suis Charlie.

Observations; Saturday 26th September


Nothing, nothing, then the washing machine spinning away downstairs.

The dog at my feet (middle toe poking through left sock) sleeping off an excited visit to the park.

Black coffee in a small black cup.

A mobile telephone, battery at sixty seven percent.

A neglected (ignored) Linguistics textbook sitting on the table in front of me.

Worker’s from the butcher shop, standing in the courtyard smoking cigarettes and discussing the chance of rain.

And a sky that will prove all three of them wrong.

Confessions 1.4


Forgive me Father for I have sinned

My first Yoga class was challenging

I woke up very sore this morning

But I haven’t slept that well in months

Today I need to buy Yoga pants

Because last night instead of doing “Downward facing dog”

I showed the entire class my “Downward drooping testicle”

Confessions 1.3


Forgive me Father for I have sinned

I had to sit around home today

Waiting for a plumber to come and un-block my kitchen sink

He finally came just before 2pm

I think the state of my apartment shocked him

I’m not a slob

But I’m not particularly tidy either

Also my Brother had just escaped from his cage

And was dry humping my taxidermied antelope
