Photographs of Iran

I dreamed for years of the train from Istanbul to Tehran/but I had to get the bus/how sad/i suppose you either like trains/or not

well/all the fucking trains are booked/took me two days to find immodium/all my monkey miming didnt help/well in the end I guess it did/but i shit my pants just a little bit/on a creaky old bus in the desert/had to put some toilet tissue in my trousers/to soak up the mess/to be honest i exaggerate/it was more a rectal sneeze;

french

mustard

coloured

mucous

in

a

nappy

hanky

grease free chicken shops/where pets and dinner sit in neighboring cages/and there’s executions in the gutter/but my camera settings were wrong and I couldn’t capture the flaps and gouts of blood/and aren’t chickens really quite big/when they’re wrapped in feathers/instead of clingfilm

and I met a guy who thought he looked liked david beckham/but he didn’t really/and I knew i couldn’t communicate enough in farsi to explain to him that it was a good thing not to look like beckham/ so I agreed and I told his friend that he looked like the iranian al pacino/to make him feel better about his david beckham look-a-like friend

the winter mosque burned into my retina/and I took a nap on the floor/it was hot outside/and then finished Kurt Vonnegut’s worst book/then hid in an alley and had a ramadan cigarette/and drink of bam! cola/that tastes like asda value cola

and the nomads in tents/sleep/and its freezing cold/and I sleep under a big rug/eat lots of sheep cheese and bread/smoke ḡalyān/show the boys contemporary fisting porn on my ipod

but

I

guess

I’ll

save

the

shemale

stuff

till

next

time
