I don’t quite
know who or when
but that stick got stuck
right up there in her ass
what I do know was
she was standing in front of me
with a not faint sneer on painted face
you’re not very sophisticated are you?
like I wanted to be
had hung that shameful label
on my door around my neck
I don’t do snobbery I offered
if that’s what you mean?
oh dear came the sigh
I mean subtlety shading refinement
like you’re doing now? I interrupted
which seemed to agitate the stick further
I can’t expect you to understand!
maybe you could try leading by example?
I said then to her stiff rapidly walking away back
there are no winners or losers in this
but one of us will sip brandy tonight
without needing it to be a label brand
