this is unusual

its night

as
it
would
be

and 
i am awake inside the opiates
took for sleeping
and

have 
become 
Full of Love for All of You

and
no one is more surprised than me
to
find this plastic zen
waiting
in
the 
midnight 

i am full of love for all of you
           in 
your paygrade sickness
and 
your demographic wealth

and no one is more surprised than me
when
i
think
that
am 
full of love for all of you

in 
your jury coincidence
in 
your postcode circumstance
in
your
  habitual 
    self 
      inflation
and
kneejerk 
self
d
e
f
l
a
t
i
o
i am full of love for all of you

                  and 

so it goes in the hub tonight

suck it up
my cutlery monkeys 

for tomorrow 
will
be
in
pieces

STRANGE DUCKLINGS



look at them strange ducklings !

he says
on the pm bus
our shift over early

look at them out there !
where do you even
buy an anorak like that ?

he
laughs out loud
with
genuine glee

i love finishing this early !

he says
nose to the window

you never see them strange ducklings 
out and about
when
us
normals
are
do you ?

and his laugh
changes into
a
kind
of
whoooop of triumph
as
he
spots a man on a street corner
buttoned up all wrong
in an 80s ski jacket
fiddling
with
two pairs of headphones
and 

brown vinyl shopping trolley
like
an
old
woman
might
have
used
twenty years ago
