#2,680 Cleaning Windows

Mike Bell/ May 5, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

A brief chat with our window
cleaner ’bout life – football &
‘bout sex lives of narcissists –
that usual stuff – how to deal
with all that shit – how to live
a life worth living by avoidin’
local racists & hate-peddlers
behind their tricksy smiles &
sales pitches – they run local
shops for local people – they
hang signs in their minds – a
laugh we had at their glazed
expressions now cleaned up
& left to reflect on slow shift
by youth (from auld alt-right
positions) – & they shall pass
