Somewhat inspired by real life. I’ll let you decide for yourself which bits though.


I only got to sleep for an hour
before going in for my shift.
After drinking a litre of cheap energy juice
& a flask of instant coffee
they released me into the wild.

In the bookshop
I wandered
with shooting stars playing across my sight.

I stroked the books
tongue hanging out
drooling from the corner of my mouth.

I touched them
& then
I touched myself.

The police found me spent
in a large pool of my own ejaculate
surrounded by stained & ruined pages.
