We’re in a hospital

going around touch the ground

no patients staff sit everywhere

alike tables amounting to steam.

Staff walk everywhere

late nights bad ideas

you want to order?

I’m not eating remember

 

Brick Lane antiques

bottom floor coffee

in the dark it was a decent

place to fall for shiny things.

A.  she hasn’t lived our life

so she just doesn’t understand.

B.  different chambers of course, septum

the dividing wall is what she’s like.

C.  why care?

Thank you for waiting

sorry about the wait

sorry about that. Our fault

old computers bad habits.

They got held up this morning

a peculiar case a sweetheart.

Is that a species known to be friendly? Tiger goldfish

eat plastic soldiers. New women come to relieve

those and their friends gently ushered away.

Where do they take the receiving chambers

for a walk on the beach for a day in the sun

for a break from the blood flowing through.
