Fat bergers and tributaries

entry picture


Maybe it was in the late 80’s?

in Kings Cross, after Backpackers, 

a Sunday afternoon, pissing rain.


I found myself drilling a night fighter among a timpani of bins

behind some chicken shack salmonella dive,

she’d sidled up and offered her wares,

we bucked and rode like spastic drunks.


I faked orgasm in limp humiliation,

ripped the rubber from my flesh and tossed it drainward.


Now, a fat-berger drifts slowly river-bound,

a DNA filled sack of cum clings like afterbirth

to nappies, tampons and cast off kids,

my bio-degradable debauched past creeps in a glacier of waste.


Part of me remained in drains

beneath a great fine rotten mass of life,

while I wandered this world from then till now

seeking other tributaries for my deposits.

Ah, I want you to visit Dresden Ray.

Vienna is as it ever was, a nest of beautiful vipers, geography loves Vienna.

Thanks for liking my liking of your poem. I can feel an allied theme coming on - people's rectal canals becoming similarly clogged by the crap they eat on a regular basis . Political dynamite might just reverse the trend. But first Dresden . Or is it the sewers of Vienna in a revisit of Harry Slime?

I'll get my high vis coat.

Thanks Ray,

no no no, please laugh as much as possible.

I am ridiculing my younger self and my shallowness, hahaha...I have moved from that place, but it serves little purpose to others unless we confess our human frailties. So lets really write dangerously eh! put it out there.

Thanks Ray, it is a great memory for me, and one that has become meaningful.

Lots of love pal,

A joint venture sounds interesting.

I wanted to be the first to congratulate you David on this. If we ever get a book going together I want this to be next to my A Man found Jesus in a Sewer- for his disbelief he found a cure.
Is my sense of humour perverse? because as I read this I was laughing aloud. Your deadpan reading obviously helped. Of course there is a serious side to be considered, but it is certainly topical and pretty revolting. There is the feeling of hopelessness behind moments of pleasure that ultimately drain us into despair.
