ASK iAN * SOMETIMES EVERYTHING GOES WRONG

THE THOUSAND YARD STARE COMES A LITTLE TOO LATE/ THE AGGRAVATION OF MEALY & LEAN YEARS COMES ON HARD LIKE A GHOST/ WE TREMBLE AND TRAMPLE THOSE WE LOVE MOST/ WE WALK ON EGGSHELLS FOR THE RENT OF AN ABSENT OTHER/ THESE GOD DAMNED FIRES OUT THERE BEFORE US LIKE CATTLE CALLS/ LIKE TRIPLE DOG DARE HEXES/ LIKE BOOBY-TRAPS/ THE TEAR DROP OF A WHITE LIE/ THE GREAT IMAGINATION./ WE COP LIKE SKELETAL DOGS IN A MINE-FIELD/WE RAKE AND RANK OURSELVES TO THE LOWEST OF LOWS/LOSE FRIENDS AND LOVERS LIKE FLIES BOUNCING OFF OF A WINDSHIELD/WE HURT THE FACE WE SEE IN THE MIRROR AS A RETALIATION AGAINST GOD/ AND SUFFER AT THE HANDS OF VISA STRIPPERS. THE GIRLS TELL ME THAT MY EYES GO BLACK AS BREATHLESS TAR MY EMPTINESS PROWLS THE DEAD GROUNDS FOR DEAD ANSWERS/ IF MY HEART COULD ONLY HEAR AND MY EARS COULD ONLY LISTEN MY MIND A TRIANGLE OF 3/ A CHILD, A DOG AND A KITTEN* I FALL IN LOVE, I FALL IN LOVE AND AGAIN I FALL IN LOVE AND PUNCH MYSELF CLEAN ACROSS THE JAW A WINDMILL SUCKERPUNCH OUT OF NOWHERE...AND I CAN'T RECALL JUST WHY I LAUGHED, I REMEMBER WHY I LEFT, I FORGET WHY I PHONED, I CRY LIKE A WOMAN WHO HAS HIT THE STREETS TOO MANY TIMES TO RECOLLECT. SOMETIMES IT ALL GOES WRONG, AND SONG, AND WOE, AND GENTLE GRIEF JUST WON'T CUT IT...YOU DANCE WITH DEATH, EYE TO SORRY EYE...NO RELIEF AND EVEN DEATH WILL NOT HAVE YOU...CUTTING THE RUG YOU WISH WAS A VEIN...PISSING UPON THE PAST AND SCREAMING DOWN THE ROADWAYS WITH ROAD RAGE AND ONLY SPITTING DEAD SILENCE... I WAS SO IN LOVE WITH YOU BACK WHEN WE WERE SUCH A BORE... I HEAR A HOWL IN THE DISTANCE AND A DISTANCE BETWEEN ME AND THE NOW* AND I CAN'T WIN YOU BACK ANYMORE...AS ALL THE DOORS ARE LOCKED AND CLOSED. 941282_606330776058140_1989056027_nPHOTO * JAMES ACTON 2013
