HERE THERE

Andrew Blair

.

Every Indie Disco Ever

ankles staunchly planted
circle theme developed
that justboy needs therapy,
he will get
a shady lane
at best

you do it to yourself

and Gertrude Stein says
glitter and glitter and glitter and trauma
and too much apple pie
I throw myself
at the floor
and miss.

just you

arms locked with the refugee
from downstairs’ toga party
escaping the skin of
yellow country teeth
she had visas
in her name

you and no-one else

a dance floor is essential
the space above unloved
distant in the union
waving slow hands
we all float on
into the rest

just you

mid-ceiling-stare
residual – dream feeding -
her slyness, thrown
across the theme,
will linger gaping.
you hope her aim was true

you and no-one else

 
Andrew Blair

Andrew Blair is a liar.
