about

Straddling the defunct border of Brighton and Hove, the Peace Statue: olive BRanch in one hand, Hand grenade in the other. From landside, a mnemonic. In my dream we made love on the plinth. Not you and me you understand. Her and me. Me and her. She and I. Whatever... (SS)

lyrics

I lay beneath an angel
on the midnight esplanade
One hand held out a laurel wreath,
the other a grenade
Before me lay the Channel,
beyond me lay the town
On my right was Brighton,
left was Hove, and I was upside-down.

I felt like a cornetto,
or at least a 99
But the beachfront shop shut hours ago
before the dusk resigned
A rollerblader threw my stroke
speeding by behind
I noticed all the waving foam,
and then I changed my mind

All the houses you inhabit
and the gardens that you tend,
Cannot convince me other than
the dark is my best friend.
Beware the groynes you cannot see
When the tide comes up the beach
The sea will take out your old shit
And bring new shit within reach
