When internet failed at near enough 2am,
the youtube window I happened to have open
was Oh, What a Night by The Four Seasons.
Lacking connection to load anything else,
I listened to that song some few dozen times,
trusting the up-thumb sound quality and
clear ear-annelid melody to
sufficiently amuse me at least for a while.

You type so blank where once
blushes hid behind your font.
Time was I could see
all the squeaks
and bleats, that I’d
incite in person,
in every piece

I can see them,
but then when you’re

Excuse me while I tumble dry my life.
It’s soaked through now and trembling to its core,
strewn here all sad and soggy on my floor.

A nice office job involves much less fear;
is peer pressure why you still cannot quit?
Your Sixties-trapped ‘friend’ seems rather a git
to keep you in this vocation you hate

Teeth are just weak little shits on the whole.
Always eroding, never withstanding;
wave their white flags at sucrose invaders,
while clad in armour that melts on contact,
then decay when a slight breeze blows their way.
You’d think they’d be made

I’ve had three keys
to three doors
in the one and score turns
I’ve muddled through the mire
that so many turns prior
some scholar named observed
and thought to name existence.

straight through the heart
with the ice-bright blades
oh-so subtly serene,
to deliver an exquisite

at varying heights
through these 2D pipes
which mustn’t be touched
or else fall with a thud
to a crashing, dead-eyed humiliation,
