Semifinals were up for 5 days and there wasn't a lot going on with them as far as votes go, so to keep things moving, here are the finals.


Cois Ba

the most stressful thing in my life
was once getting a Premiere League player card I already had,
down a lane when I was twelve I was shot in the leg with a pellet gun
by my best friend and I still have the scar.
now trees are growing on the grass we tired so hard to wear down
the jumpers we used as goal posts are in the bin, or hand me downs for siblings,
facial hair and stomach muscles have replaced chinese burns
toy shops we visited every thursday have been replaced with over priced cafes,
home is just a place name for geographical purposes, people make the difference sometimes.
but if home is where the heart is well that really is a shame
either I never had a heart or I was never introduced to this place.

I play games that will eventually decode the future
-Bachelard

Hair mizzled with dirt that fell to it
from the ceiling of your hole,
you recede with tickles that linger
from the roots and the worms
and flocks of birds that nest over your head,
darkened hands and knees that last all day.
Hopefully your mother doesn't come home tonight,
and we can wash the mud away in your neighbor's pool,
then run as fast as we can back over the fence
and the bridge where they filmed night of the living dead
to Mr. Grady's front porch swing, dripping and waiting
for the time to inhale goodbyes and resign to saying nothing at all
in the breezy pulse before sunrise
your cheek against my chest while my eyes follow the azimuth line.

This way's yours and that one's mine.



Dust and dirt and fertile lands,
Rowed for cultivation,
Crafted by sun-hardened hands,
Feed my civ'lization.
People come and people go,
Swiftly as the seasons.
There is no oil, there is no gold,
But people have their reasons.
We are a people tried and true,
Standing proud of who we are.
Though we may not much wealth accrue,
Riches dwell within our hearts.



my bed is filled with the voices of many people
a place that I once called sanctuary now tainted with crowds
familiar faces, familiar conversations,
familiar feelings of connection wired through a telephone
sunrises spied through the window of another night alone
clutching on to whoever can relate, but...

my town is filled with the cries of many people
cloistered all in little houses, faces lit in television glow
like flickering hungry angels with nothing to eat
there is no fruit here, in the bowling alleys and subdivisions
they need violence and laughter and love
but there is only emptiness
there is only shelter and no place to be alone

my head is filled with the sighs of many people
as they sit in their cars and stare at the traffic light above
wondering what they will say to their old boring friend
when they sit and meet in the cafe,
speak of all the other people,
sip on coffee, eat a danish,
hope and pray that they are entertaining enough to feel like
a goddamn piece of something or other in
this great big shit pile of somethings.


and the deer and the deer and the deer
dig up holes to hide from the sun
and the cranes and the tractors and
the great big lawnmowers of death
and most of all, the sad people
that have so graciously taken their homes.

Thank God, my favourite made it to the finals. Red all the way. And thank you so much Saadia for putting this up for me. I just arrived in LA yesterday and I was dead in the water. Still am, pretty much, but I've got free internet to use and abuse.
