TICK TOCK GO THE CRAIC’S HEELS
the label of your blouse
I gently tucked in
thumb up take for thanks
what are the symptoms of
too many ‘like’ buttons pressed night before
say to be popular

you’ve never been afraid of the after
way I’ve been
thou admit following you to the next exit
meant to be the last
upset me to be another slogan
I could not handle sober

when we have worn out
all the love songs there were to sing
some slick type lured you away
I forgot son-of-the-bitch’s name
sitting on a bar stool
my smeared eyeliner watched
a singular drop of condensation
gliding down a bottle’s neck
through the length of dawn (25th March 2013)
