Home of the Black Rooms

Home of the black light, home

of the space, infinite, home of the

bare and black, as dull as ditch water.

Home of the black rooms.


This road is dead

This place is divided

This road flashes in my

Combination of charging chemical cells.

Iím already here running and

Falling, and standing and crawling.

This place is divided

By a tunnel of glossy mirrors.


Cliff edge high, want to insert water into the sea -


As you wade in and wade out

Wade out of the water.

Youíre picture isnít in my locket

Thereís no love in my pocket

And somebody needs you

Like the waves need the sea.


You cut me with your contradictions;

Iím devoid of your nourishing nutrition

I donít fit the criteria

Shaking in the trenches, a hag in the hysteria.


Chinese whispers in a chain, extending, comes between

Chinese burns plotting permanent scars

So you tell me to clutch to life with all I have

I hang on; hang on, to my rope that scars my neck


I dare you chuck it, have the courage to

 Throw it

I know you want this article but not the poet.


Home of the black rooms.

bare and black, as dull as ditch water.

of the space, infinite, home of the

Home of the black light, home
