No. 3089

An Embargo. By CpSingleton © 2016

It’s an embargo of the senses.

The walls seems as thick as Granny’s sliced bread as I lay and 

Listen to 

The rain inside my head.

The world could shake it’s last, but

I won’t panic or 

Even vent fury at the lack of time left

To see the wonders of the world.

Apparently there’s a only a limited amount out there. 

Wonders that is.

Who gets to naysay whether this house within a house within 

Isn’t a wonder!?

It is to me. 

How dare they say nay to that!

Oh! In studying the lack 

Have I just stumbled upon a 


Chris on a flagpole, flapping!

Now there’s a wonder to behold.
Do I have them, even when they appear

Buried under a landslide of sludge and yesterday’s hopes?

How perpendicular.

I like that word. 

There I go again, Mother,

Expressing a sentiment.

Before you know it I’ll be

Running across the rooftops with Burt, or

Flying a kite with a fucking great stupid grin on my smoke-damaged face.

Maybe I do have feelings, but there’s an embezzler at the back of mind, with

A hook on a long stick,

Who traps them from me and then,

When he’s feeling particularly mean,

Releases them all at once,

So that they spill and spew out of mouth and eye

Onto nervous bystanders who only crossed my path

Because serendipity was pms-img that day and

Wish that I would just fuck off again.

Time to breathe…

No power to seethe. 

Sales calls should be banned or made illegal or exorcised like that green goo spewing little goblin.

I’m only saying

Because I just got another.

That and a feeling.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. Do reckon everyone feels some kind of aching chasm that yearns to be counter balance with some form of joy and purpose or just us middle age folks? Anyway, this is relatable and surprisingly readable. You are a true poet. How rude!

  2. Chris, this is amazing, emotions are such tricky things. A balancing act all the time. Love the humor of course and the Pink Floyd tag.

      • You’re welcome, what can I say about the goldenrod star “like” line? Hmm? Their loss. Is that right, I was going to use, “Another Brick in The Wall, with one of my recent posts, so there, lucky for you I changed my mind. Yes, true!

  3. One should never hold back on the Floyd!
    You go, girl!
    I like try these expressions out. Though not sure I have the flounce for that particular one.
    I’ll try it on my next YouTube video.
