CHOCOLATE

PERIWINKLE OVER CHOCOLATE FACTORY   IT’S 6 A.M.

In bed with paper +Humbert  who looks at downed Russian

plane   Face of Putin wretched+elfin stares back at him   You

get the face you deserve   says Hum’s mum  a Lolita scholar

with  a dry sense of humour

 

I am currently attempting a  re-invention tour   My last career

was striking  only in its adherence to the unglamorous   This

time around I aim to re-vivify the haggard    Bring me your

immutably fatigued  your careworn minions   +with a macabre

sense of comedy   I will eradicate melancholia itself

 

Last week I hired a new staff member  within minutes she brightened:

I’m not stupid  I can see you have powers   I tried to withhold the truth

But now discovered  I had no choice but to hurtle her toward her newly

dead “Poppy”   Her severe depression  there for all to see  lifted     I know

on paper this does not sound like anything fresh    But any further follow

up would ruin its magic
