affected infected

we were new

in that talking phase

where you talk about anything

everything you are

are not

& I mentioned an influence

this cat called Nigel went on

to become a singer songwriter

& I felt her pull back a little

& some while later

after a couple of oh mans

she did the same

raising an eye I asked her why

not sure she said if it’s about

you using the word cat

or saying oh man is affected

or whether I’m scared

of being infected

end up being or saying the same

don’t worry baby I said back

if that’s all you’re worried about

the infection has already

taken hold
