Circle Unit Document

Five times faster
Falling through the cracks
Dry ceiling plaster
Reported dog attacks

Circle unit document
A memento from your friend
What was never meant
What will never end

Sore around the edge
Thrown into neutral
Flung from the ledge
Landing somewhat brutal

Timid quiet slacking
Discussion and display
Open book backing
Too high a price to pay

Source material
Found footage
Raised aerial
Maximum wattage

Tungsten kodachrome
Glazed beloved forlorn
Connection left alone
Lessons hard worn

Spring washer hex nut
Everything essential
Missing the cut
Wildly experimental


Vast expanse
Desert plain
River banks
Wind vane

Delivery options
Decoded threats
Sold at auction
Paid on death

Salad days
Rocky outcrops
Purple haze
Vacant lots

Subterranean tunnels
Burst pipes and a leaky roof
Endowment funds funnelled
Critical paths acting aloof

Resident evil
Sign of the times
Split level
Half-remembered nursery rhymes

Innovations lost to the cause
Washed up on foreign soil
Time to stop or at least to pause
Let the blood thicken before it boils

September surrounding environment
High on possibility
Just another early retirement
Deafening implausibility

Composed development
Arrested as usual
All round envelopment
Keeping it casual

Colourful and complimentary
Found one week later
The basics are elementary
Exploded volcanic crater

Limited liability
Sold to the highest bidder
Another complete inability
Screams a suitable good riddance

Umbrellas kiosks distant bays
Furniture in neat piles
What does not go simply stays
Catalogued in files

Black abstraction
Yves Klein blues
Four wheels losing traction
We don’t get to choose

A dour exercise
States of waking
Markets bafflement lies
Sick of waiting

Power accuracy attribution
Pay it forward
Tarnished reputation
One for all, all aboard

High winds and intense heat
Impoverished approach
Incredible feat
Hostage beyond reproach

Left hand side
Controlled burning again
Switch sworn total pride
That which has no name

Frank discussions, ammunition
A horseshoe panorama
A wasted expedition
Tragic comedy drama
