Derek Jarman & My Aunt

Dear God, please
send me to hell
will be received
& then hung up
equal to Sylvia’s
phantom cattle –
Mr Jarman & my
Aunt on my wall
[beside my very
grave self-portrait
in charcoal 1984]
My [almost] queer
gallery [There’s a
BBC Radio play in
that line] I’ll heed
my wireless every
day – streamed &
free on-demand
[til they agree it’s
not by decrees of
licence abolition]
I’ll mind one God
[my other Aunty
Beeb] & pray that
our public T.V. is
kept from Azazel
