The Dark Angels are a come and go crew. They create then disappear like street art. Their works exist in fragments, particles that float, dust motes that spin before the wind that blows them to faraway places. They are individuals that work as one. Deep as oceans, as impenetrable as the night. Art urchins and poets, they dissolve before they form. They are the Dark Angels, they are discharge. They are a bloody mouthful.

Prose Poem Three


 

She shouts her hate at me. I shout mine back. Tit for tat, tit for tat. Two adults returned to childhood. Name calling like spitting cats. Claws sharpened by razor thin hurt, the subtleties of communication descending to primitive depths. Doors slam shut loudly in the face of memory. The fuzzy edges of love turned sour. Sentences formed in full caps.  Sentences never finished - Punctuation emphasising the fractured syntax of the relationship. At the epicentre of the conflict lies blame. It is a bruised fist of unequal proportions. North of England is flooded. Silt covers carpets and the lower floors of houses. An advert sings. A newscaster informs. Silence shunts the sound of rage into submission as TV regains sway over the empty living room.
