HUMOUR. RAILWAY TUNNELS ARE STRANGE PLACES!

Deaf Hair

 

The busker's

Musical dentures

Grow tone

Deaf hair,

In the blues

Noise of

The railway

Tunnel

Of filth,

Stench and

Graffiti shadows,

As his

Plywood guitar

Melts onto

Feral cats,

Limbless alcoholics,

And lost

Iguanas,

That crawl

All over

The sober

Office girls,

Weeping into

Their mobiles,

And clinging

To their

Sweaty panty

Hose,

In defiance

Of lust...

My voice

Has been eaten

By reptile

Mirrors,

Reflecting only

That I

Am insane...

Yeah...I don't like go to the railway tunnels as well, looks like they are in a different world. But I saw some nice buskers too.

Thanks for the comments Derina, I used to busk in the tunnel at Central if you know it, before it was done up. It was ultra depressing!

Way back in the late seventies Deina. Played a tuneless guitar! I think I remember you taking snaps with a polaroid! But that tunnel was awful!!!

You are right. I do have a black and white photo of you when you were a young, smart lad playing guita! (You didn't have fangs then.) Don't be too hard on you. You were doing well at the time, tho' I didn't know what you were playing. Can I have your signature if I bring you the photo?
