Match Reading Matter

Mike Bell/ January 27, 2022/ 0 comments

Glib football programmes
contain flat expectations –
Near half a season spent?
In by slick turnstiles [they
still click in oily-analogue
ways at Burnley] – We see
teams paid in millions flex
on flawless flat turf below
us – Half a month’s wage
for a year [almost a score]
of home games – we pour
pints & pies pre-match as
we read out our Guvnor’s
hopes over flicked pages
[unfolds of positive word-
plays read & I can’t recall
buying other print matter]
