Accent by Patrick Pearse


 

 

Record
by Alan Jude Moore

we have recorded ourselves
and are no longer here
occupants of other rooms
alone hearing voices
heartbeats
through stethoscopes
pressed against the wall
hardly respond  astronauts
spin through debris
televisions hum
from the floor below
footsteps
swinging
broken
doors 
remember where you are 
put it down to memory 
tricks that play 
repeatedly
