In the door of a cut-price card shop in the mall-
behind the butcher’s along the corridor of sheen-
she’s there to show me her M and S trolley invention
and I know she is impossible I know it will be tough
but I fully intend to engage in this impossibility
and will fall from a height to the uncomfortable truth
that this is the door of a cut-price card shop
this is back of a butcher’s, this is me.
