A hustle & bustle at Barking Station -
The Good Friday service runs once a year -
today I met a northern artist called Rick Myers
passing through London from Manchester
to arrange a visa for his marriage in Massachusetts.
One of his conceptual books is called Bite Marks on Paper.
A friend of his once stopped his car at traffic lights
and Mark E. Smith jumped in the back - Stockport! -
so like Faustus has visa, every car is a cab. To not
disillusion him he drove him there & next day
found a palette of false teeth under the back seat.
In the credit crunch of plastic he could not bite a receipt.
