& when your friends are dying &
you don’t know how to say how
very much they mattered ..
bloke fails to play long games &
leave a credible message –
f*ck for Whatsapp’s prompt draw
of a line without any talking –
poke out texts as if masons
[all chisel-slick stutterers of quick
headlines] –
Here lies everyman –
here lies a life of what-ifs & what-
could-haves [ten thou’ poems &
none read by those’d matter] –
shorter service for all dead poets
is my request –
do not read verse
aloud at a gathering –
speech matters
