Poetry: Cherry Bleeds


wake up
have big meeting
cry in toilets
surf kiddy porn
fuck your wife
(don’t fuck your wife)
go to bed 
wake up
have some toast
attend church
walk round empty house
forget who you are
go to bed 
wake up
sign some papers
kill some people
speak at black tie dinner
go to bed 
wake up
read sports pages
swim in the sea
write for 10 minutes
go to bed
wake up
look out window
speak to no one
get picked up by mother
cut insides of arms with little knife
go to bed 
wake up
stand to attention
stare out at horizon
wish to not be here
play football with friends
go to bed
