BY ALL MEANS KEEP IT REAL
jealousy
a debt collector
ruthlessly lifting
poor family belongings
from own immune system –
tortures weak mortals

it is also a hazardous liquid
oozing as through God
has overlooked and left it running;
inevitably jealousy has closed in on God

it doesn’t laugh at the punch line
drily keeps pretending it’s all good
when at least some of it hurts
its voice seems to exist not
in the air but already in our blood –
makes it the only nourishment
we could be certain about (16th September 2015)
