it's so beautiful up
here
i don't ever
want to land


1=2 we hope that you choke


Everything I do/say is suspect.


no substitute for a healthy smile


Oxygen should be regarded as a drug.


hey we really mean it
hey we really care


AUTHORITIES
HERE ARE ALERT


What will we mean?
Nothing.


the soft warm radiance of money


People are aware, but not that bothered.


And how do you see yourself in 50 years' time?


Tell them how we feel. Let them know what is here. Come inside this wasteland. Come and pull it apart.


look
alike
in timesquare
in nuclear fallout
reflective clothing
in his personal space


Words on a gravestone: I waited but you never came.


itís easy to be miserable. being happier is tougher-
and cooler.


itís one of our strenghts and also one of our great
weaknesses. emotional honesty.


outside is a beautiful blue day
inside there is a war going on.


the most essential thing in life is to establish a
heartfelt communication with others.


There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men.
True nobility is being superior to your former self.


I have to lie in the middle of the floor
completely motionless not daring to breathe.
I am like this when the police finally find me.


a ARK, complacence. rivers rising. doors shut in your face
whispering electronics, private security. underground bunkers
in L0ndon. rooms where you are forgotton. mental home. sectioned,
SECTIONED


a computer generated environment a
fantasy island you can dooooo anything and not have to face the
consequences.


dead bank clerk
does it have to figure?
free lunch
dead bank clerk


think of how humbling it is to realize
that the world wouldn't be the same
if one person did not exist.


speak until the tape runs out
play back the tape
until the story is finished


what a clean city

after all
look inside nothing going on at all
the life youd like to lead
white meat on a stick


i like you. i like you. you are a wonderful person. i'm full of
enthusiasm. i'm going places. i'll be happy to help
you. i am an important person. would you like to come
home with me?


heist gone wrong


The decline and fall of the Roman empire


the Russian military has lost track of more
than 100 suitcase sized nuclear bombs,
any one of which could kill up to 100,000 people , ......


theres a story about
a place where it rains all the time and when people decide to kill
themselves they stand with their faces turned to the sky mouths open until
they drown


against demons


a mindless angel
with a
handful of
crumpled stars.


If you're frightened of dying and then you hold on,
you'll see devils tearing your life away.
But, if you've made your peace,
then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth.


To kill a demon made of wet
sawdust. This sort of demon
is almost impossible to kill.
The only way to do it is to
cover its face with wet bread
and karate chop its head off.
Otherwise you are in trouble
and so is the neighbourhood.
Wet sawdust demons like to
terrorise. N.B. Pressing its
face into wet bread that is on
the ground works best
though you can get a result
just by throwing the bread
at its face.


look what i found in
the tank
we fed him too much +
he just grew + grew + grew


confidence collapsed
charm offensive


do you really know where youíre going? do you have a
plan-of-action to take the kinks out of your road to the
future?.. you can reach and find happiness. you can
reach for that plain peace-of-mind which you desire
all you have to do is turn the key and open the
door.


public relation- exercise


The president and vice-presidents make the
rounds, going to all the tables and shaking hands.


i wait at the edge for the tide to come in but all it brings is
empty plastic containers and sticks and polythene
nothing that even remotely
resembles
me.


Scarecrows. Supply and demand. Reflected glory. Dull blue light. Credit. Voters. Bones. Loopholes. Credit.


there is/was a supermarket
built on an island in the middle of the swamps
people are/were fishing from the misty banks
children were/are lost in the supermarket and are never found
there is not/could be fog in the meat aisle


REASONS for TEMPORARY LULLS IN PRODUCTIVE THINKING
exhaustion
over-work
boredom
being out of your league


jump out of bed as soon as you hear the alarm clock!!
you may also find it useful spending five minutes each
morning saying to yourself: "everyday in every way I
am getting better and better." perhaps it is a good idea
to start a new day with the right frame of mind.


eaten and regurgitated repackaged in prissy little boxes


the easiest way to sleep at night is
to carry on believing that i don't exist.
the easiest way to sell your soul is
to carry on believing that we don't exist.
it must be hard with your head on backwards.


I put all my
baskets in one
egg.
Not
everything
is bad.


SPINE DAMAGED.


child offers you flowers,
i love you very much
if only
things fall apart
there does not have to be a reason


husband leaves for work. mother explains to children daddy is
not coming back. than they sit down to eat and sing him a song
like the look in someones eyes


hotel falling down.
people aware but not that bothered.
parisien.
huge.
blue grey steel metal.
people casually avoiding large parts of the structure as it falls to earth.


CLEARED TO TAXI
CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF
Takeoff clearances


Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat. Well of course I'd like to stay and chew the fat.


IN AN UNDERGROUND WHITE AUDITORIUM THERE IS
A COUNTRY SINGALONG WITH TAMMY WYNETTE. THE
AUDIENCE ARE ALL OIL SHEIKS AND SULTANS. THEY
SING ALONG WITH BEAMING FACES 'WE CAME UP
FROM BEHIND, FROM BEHIND'.


(pulling wires from the ground)
packt like sardines in a crushed tin box.
(struggle.)


every bad act
is stored on a magnetic tape
which we retain. kept in a secret vault
and evaluated
repeated and repeated with your code name
at the top of the file.
to be reviewed at your departure
for the pearly gates.


I like this song.
It's catchy.
Listen to this bit coming up.
Listen.
Listen.
There!
Isn't that bit amazing?
Wait.
I'll play it again.

A schizophrenic patient will not allow anyone to touch them; not because they would do them some harm, but because they might electrocute them.


why did this have to happen now?
not having time to say.
you're killing all the tall thin ones. they feed me
our bodies floating down the muddy river.


antidotes for loneliness in a goldfish bowl.

your head.

up there in your goldfish bowl turn to God
and you will find that you were
never alone in the first place.


before your eyes you realise,
long fat air conditioning tubes,
rain,
continuous rain,
overhead cables humming
snakepits,
OUBLIE Eprisoncells the backs of people sheads, grandma
andouille


If you have been rejected many times in your life, then one more
rejection isn't going to make much difference. If you're
rejected, don't automatically assume it's your fault. The other
person may have several reasons for not doing what you are asking
her to do: one of it may have anything to do with you. Perhaps
the person is busy or not feeling well or genuinely not
interested in spending time with you. Rejections ar part of
everyday life. Don't let them bother you. Keep reaching out to
others. Keep reaching out to others. When you begin to receive
positive responses, then you are on the right track. It's all a
matter of numbers. Count the positive responses and forget about
the rejections.


"...People would like to think that there's somebody up there who knows what he's doing. Since we don't participate, we don't control and we don't even think about questions of vital importance. We hope somebody is paying attention who has some competence. Let's hope the ship has a captain, in other words, since we're not taking part in what's going on...
It is an important feature of the igeological system to impose on people the feeling that they really are incompetent to deal with these complex and important issues: they'd better leave it to the captain. One device is to develop a star system, an array of figures who are media creations or creations of the academic propaganda establishment, whose deep insights we are supposed to admire and to whom we must happily and confidently assign the right to control our lives and to control international affairs...."
- Noam Chomsky
