UTUBE RINGS BELLS

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on September 14, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Tubular Bells

First U Tube
I saw
Was by
The prancing professors

Since then
I have glimpsed
the grainy world
fresh and foolish

U tube rings bells

It’s a mish mash
paddawacky
blancmange tout tout
of hopes and dreams

The invisible becomes visible
The unknown known

Once on the wheel
there’s no wipe button
the become carnate
completes only the roundel

echoing faintly
in hyperspace
but always rolling home

TWITTER NINETEEN WHO WILL BRING ME MY SHIBBOLETH

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on September 11, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Shibboleth

Gilead cut off Ephraim
By the ford of Jordon

They were trapped
the enemies of Gilead
by a slip of a tongue

The Shibboleth
tongue-trapped
the enemies
of Gliead
in the ear of corn.

How
how to
how to find
how to find my Shibboleth

Bring me my Shibboleth
and let me hear the soft roar
from the ocean of truth

PLEASE PLEASE DON’T HELP ME

like you do

Your help
risks all
firewalls

So please please
don’t help me
like you do

Hidden forces brush up
the pyre

Furnaces burn
fire consumes fire
tweets consume tweets

The great whale sinks

Twitlight of the Gods

STOPTHESTOPTHECATSDAYWEDNESDAY

Scraps

Internet Innocent?

What’s in
a one day
ban
of cats

on the internet?

Innocent
or guilty?

One day
The first step
In a thousand mile march

One creature
a first step
to the slaughter of innocents

and the hundredth monkey
is still born

In
the hundred and oneth
month

the 101th
death

for cats

Cats today
dogs tomorrow
penguins next
until the entire arc
is lost

Stop
the stop
the cats
day

TWITTER FIFTEEN THE SAME CROOKED WORM

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 6, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Dylan Thomas

The same crooked worm
crawls between the Twitter sheets

I hear about it
The worm whose name
must not be spoken

Like other ghosts
It is best left
unsummoned
to scuffle
in the leaf mound

TWITTER HOLED

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 28, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Wreck of the Deutschland

I knew it.

Twitter leaks
A rusty hulk
to be boarded and sunk

Pirates are scanning
for the main chance

Can its holes be plugged?
or will the ship
slip quietly away
