relative poverty

this well fed man on tv

is talking of adventures

misspent youth in his car

telling of sleeping in ditches

living rough

finding the best cafes restaurants

eating drinking his way to

finding his style appetite business model

his relative poverty

where some of us who did live rough

slept in ditches haystacks bus shelters

never got to find the best cafes restaurants

our style fine appetites business models

maybe because we didn’t have

the right relatives

to ease our way in our poverty
