Daylight (poetry)

b1187

Daylight

 

 

some days are clearer

 

you wake up &

jump off down

to the money machine

& find there is

enough money to buy

a new packet of

cigarettes

 

& you go back

home & open the

windows & the

sun glares into the room

& a breeze pushes itself

past the window frame & plays

with bits of loose paper

across the polished

wooden floor-boards

 

& you sit there

smoking & listening

to your favourite

R.E.M. album

 

wondering

how life can get

any better
