Yet another lost life to read about over a bowl of cereal…

one more hopeless case (fictional)
Does anybody remember the good old days of ‘lost children posted on cardboard milk cartons?

Piping Gladys

Piping Gladys
gods a sadist.
‘Can’t you see
your toes?’

Poor Gladys

Pinch it again
and you will be,
a little closer
to heaven,

gods a sadist-
and I think
you’d fuck him too.

this has been, yet another excerpt from the 1992 book of poetry I self published; THE VEAL COUPLETS
