Fujifilm Instax: Amusements Triptych
[Camera: Fujifilm Instax 100]

amusements 1
Listening to stars
That cold whispered voice gives chills
You fade into dreams

amusements 2
Love automatic
Be the whore you once promised
Let ambition die

amusements 3
Behind a smoke screen
Singing the praises of wolves
When control feels lost

Queen’s Park Camera Club (Glasgow, Scotland).[  http://qpcc.org.uk/  ]

camera club (1)

Find a neutral place
Unafraid of sentiment
Pouring hearts down drainscamera club (2)
A desire to shock
Turns the focus to my words
And not my actions

Watch me – I am shook
Having become outlandish
The bathroom floor calls

An awkward escape
Squeezed from a tightening grip
To a lonesome pop fun triptych (2)
Wrist bound with ribbon
As your pursed lips tease the tip
Blow me ’til I burstfun triptych (3)

Problems left behind
Floating through the city sky
Looner goes lunar

Naturally peaceful hands
Artlessly grasp hope

Polaroids: Curious Animals Triptych

Polaroids: Curious Animals Triptych
[Polaroid SLR 680 – Expired Impossible Project colour film]

I took these polaroids of preserved animals at the Hunterian Museum, Glasgow.

Eagerly stripping
Away emotions – Smothered
Beneath the bell jar


We talk about death
Burying the hurt


Hushed voices discuss
The past, present & future
As the screws loosen


I was just cleaning
the inside of my oven
and fell back asleep

Lovely wee set of three photos I took of a friend earlier this year with some Haiku about breasts, STDs & cum (in that order).


bra-1-copyAs you come undone
Hook by hook – i’m an addict
And I need my fix
bra-2-copyUnlike suffragettes
It won’t be your bra that is
Burning tomorrow
bra-3-copySeamen timpani
Drumming on your chest and neck
Love note wet wiped off

A horrible amalgamation of Jesus & his mum appeared in my living-room.   Looks lit he’s got heartburn tbh.

jesusmarytriptych-1Stay in bed too long
Be disgusted by yourself

Try and leave the house

jesusmarytriptych-2Struggle to find sleep
Ruminate relationships
Drink too much coffee

jesusmarytriptych-3Medicate yourself
Contemplate morality
Alone – gulping wine
