Up On The Bone Wall


But, as in ethics, evil is a consequence of good, so in fact, out of joy is sorrow born. Either the memory of past bliss is the anguish of to-day, or the agonies which are have their origin in the ecstasies which might have been.

— Edgar Allan Poe








stone me blood

surge back

to sleep

to flickering credits 

up on the bone wall

we were so young!

sober I’m not sure why I was crying

those ginger tears in the same wind


I turn off the lights & the mainframe 

I laugh

& bed my brain put warm & wander 














Joy Division – Transmission (1979)
