Alan T Geake
I live in Scotland with my family and work as a freelance writer.
I have written poetry since I was a child but have never seriously attempted publications because of the personal nature of poetry and my tendency at times to inhibit the exploration of human expression.
This is gradually changing as I let myself be open to the potential of this expression.

Burn Out (Poetry) This was written after hearing about a rock singer's suicide. [88 words]

Of the arid throat,
Pulsating with deciduous
Traversing left then right
Until it is forced
Into the corner of submission.
Feel yourself fall to the pressure
Of his immense hands
Controlling your stoical
With the force of his glare
Just as it was
In the very beginning
Kick out with desperate force
Only to see him laugh
As your fists bounce
Without effect, forcing
Toward the narrow light
Shake with the last passage
Of life, before he leaves
You gasping for every
And as he turns away
What is preventing you
Fear with its rigid domains
Interns your coming
And going. Without
It deals every hand
Kill the bastard
For eight years
This town remained
Have passed on
They refrain from movement
The faces of
This town are etched
From the inside
They remain impenetrable
If I shared

As I suspect

Beneath the rubble
Of crumbled ideals
Remains my fortress
Though one day
I will leave
Only to discover
He sings in the shower
Where others cannot hear
Or see the plethora of unmasked
They laugh as though his brain
Sits cushioned in silence
Without the sense to interpret
He shouts to the masses
Fat bastard I may be
But shallow infusions offer no
They tunnel their feelings
Towards his obesity
As if hiding the emptiness of their own
He contemplates suicide
Without wanting to die
Only to be removed from this body of
They with their sleek legs
And tight arses laugh
As if he cannot enjoy the right to be
He realises subtly
There is a fat bastard
In all of us, even without the
They, inactively bored
From the mindless crow
Move on to seek pleasure from other
While, the fat bastard
Crawls to his feet
Brushes himself and prepares for the
