the rev burns



Burn those bridges behind you, boys!

Yep! Burn ’em down good I say!

Admit it!

You never really wanted to walk

back there again anyway,

and as for those stranded

back on the other shore,

why they’re still taking pot-shots at you,

and what is more,

they were never really your friends

in the first place,

false faces all.

Behind the facile facade

gears meshed in the pig-meat brain,

you were always just a resource

to be drained.

Your Point of View was always different,

You wanted to create Connections,

They just wanted to build Infrastructure.


So burn those bridges down!

Rip up the train tracks,

cut the optic fibre at the node!

Then bunker down

in the old bomb-shelter for awhile,

and plant pink geraniums in pots

on either side of the steel hinged door. 

Muffins & tea

  1. Black as can be. Potted plants next to the steel door, indeed! Powerful stuff…

  2. In re: Wm. S. Burroughs’ declaration

    What if he is just a son?

  3. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google,
    and found that it is really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels.
    I’ll be grateful if you continue this in future.
    A lot of people will be benefited from your writing.
