Tired & At ’em

Posted in poetry with tags , , , on June 18, 2017 by malartart

even though it’s a lonely road, there’s still houses and cars

homes as lit cages, road rages, watch the traffic pass

hold your breath and pass out after every single life-form

magazine subscription paid for in advance

                              up to date as of tomorrow

december on the cover, manipulated, you’re everybody’s twin

I recognise you even though they’ve taken a couple of blemishes away

burnt off so-called fat and then being placed in a new-born’s cot

making a hatched chick look at their cracked shell in the mirror

whether its good for its mental well being or not


Put another way

What they put in


What you cut out


Take a scalpel


Remove your lungs

Forgive yourself for smoking


Take up drinking instead
