Time is Money

January 17, 2019

 

 

 

She

only closes her eyes

‘for a minute’

 

our bodies

twitching in the moonlight

 

“dancing in the moonlight

everybody here is out of sight

They don't bark and they don't bite

They keep things loose they keep it tight

Everybody's dancin' in the moonlight”

 

Tic-toc

Tic-toc

Tic-toc

Electronic devices shine brighter

than the stars

or your mind

for that matter

 

You must function better

faster

stronger

 

“Sleeping is like dying”

someone said to her the other day

A pattern

black and white checked boards

neither is better

but one wins

at a time

 

(Please sing the following lines)

“Live fast, die young, bad girls do it well

Live fast, die young, bad girls do it well”

 

City centres filled with

mums and mummies

racing to catch

the next train to

tomorrow

and/or

yesterday

 

Every day

We

Are

Stuck

Stuck

Stuck

Stuck

Stuck

Together like licked stamps

one above the other

next to a sister or lover

overlaps of dark eye shadows

on the way to the train

she pushes him

away

to

melt into the grey drizzling rain

running down the

steaming tar

white lines

WHITE lines

and then the drain

Tic-toc

Tic-toc

Tic-toc

that sucks us up

and spits us out the next day.
