“The original Gauntlet was released with no ending. The hundred or so levels were randomised and looped for as long as play lasted. Atari saw Gauntlet as a process, a game that was played for its own sake and not to reach completion. The adventurers continue forever until their life drains out, their quest ultimately [...]
Commissioned for “In The Beginning”: an evening of talks and discussion on the Big Bang, held @ The Dana Centre, London Science Museum.
In the beginning, there was Ewan’s Bar and Grill.
Ewan created the mood lighting and the beer cellar. He separated the lounge from the games room and the water from the whiskey. He created [...]
If we believe what we see on late night TV,
Then the only thing people watch on light night TV
The gang member watching hyenas on Discovery.
The drug addict glued to White Christmas,
The junior statesman prone in front of Night of the Living Dead.
The jilted romantic trapped between channels,
each broadcasting a monochrome clinch:
Darling, I….don’t ever…hold [...]
A Poem for President Obama (in N+7)
Each day off we go about our buskets,
walking past each other, catching each other’s
eyebrows or not, about to speak or speaking.
All about us are nomads. All about us are
nomads and brand, Thoth and ding, each
one of our anchovies on our tonker.
Someone is stitching up a Hemerobaptist, darning
a holiday in [...]
They have broad commitment issues
that can probably be traced back to their honeymoon,
A long weekend of hollow agreements,
where they saw in each other what they hated in themselves.
Granted, neither of them got to be the looker.
It must have felt like going to the prom with your brother
so I, their vicar, their appointed councillor, encouraged
an attitude [...]
Although I’ve never seen them kiss.
But whenever I collected them from your hallway
they always looked so sad at my return.
(It always took ages to unpick their laces.)
“Hey,” they would say. “Hey, lets go

to an expensive sushi restaurant,
or a mosque! Let’s go round to Michaels house!”
Michael, with his ambitious [...]
OPEN to sounds of an economic upswing. Offstage, new departments are filing their first notions. A boxfresh monitor is ceremoniously degaussed.
CURTAIN UP on R. SUTHERLAND. Friendly and industrious. Sutherland has the air of a man you would wish to slap on the back and laugh riotously.
A Google Poem.
The secret is not in knowing how to pick someone’s lock;
the secret is knowing how to get them to open the door for you.
The secret is learning to control a small stream of air into the harmonica.

Standing in front of the bay windows
of my crisply vectored apartment
wearing a promotional tee-shirt
I got free from a box manufacturing company,

on the lower east side of the city
and wondering where I’m going to find my next job,
It’s easy to forget that none of this is real.
Catch me on a [...]
