Window- Smashing

in a pub about to drop dead

from a vitamin d


because the windows have been

boarded up

(that’s a lie)

they’ve been

bricked up                     because

people kept putting them in

instead of putting bottles down

was not an option


a girl with eyes like pints

downing rainclouds

‘best price per percentage           please’

with hands too cold to hold or throw

a brick and so              sticks  stoned
