Natural Blues (A Reassessment)

IMG_0173

reeds scraping gristle

sound of thick pillar refinement

synergy going dilapidated

mattress excitement in

a formation

(ethereal ring)

 

all sacred buds and dominant postures

to wrangle the rise of suit equipment

barge jumping off a wooden bridge

high jump mental insanity

peacock suit of twisted…

revitalising exhaust turbine

polluted with low pick ups

and the same ricocheting chords

the lads chorus follows shortly

and stadium bang

white dwarf collapse of plan B

open protective fusion

two reptilian eyes

bloodstream corrupt

now falling

soil and poison

 

evil stench and dead sun

(sub human electricity)

grind hurl TV rock star abuse

on a motorcycle doing 180

distinction in the shape

of the level the sound and the person

and now we hark back to Earls Court 75

and the high fat content

at the expense of the dole originators

bow down Charlie Patton and Son House

(with Blind Lemon in the ante room)

humble cotton field afterglow

the stadium was non existent

and they knew

Sonny Boy knew

Honeyboy Edwards knew

and the bliss of a Kronenberg and snuff

after the pioneering devil enigma

white hot

 

a nihilist at Three Folks

beats a nihilist at Knebworth
