Jam Sandwicj

by grimbeau

we need a plan—a good plan
to get where we want

to be apart from not here just now
says who (and whose army?)

el Cid from Broadstairs downstairs
from far beyond the grave—why he
so macabre, sardonic, cheap

& nasty to boot
That’s not to mention stupid, obnox
& quite honestly sick

Nobody needs your shit—they got enough

of their own on their plate to be

getting on with to…
What about free diamonds-

free diamonds—

no questions asked
Diffo kettle altogetha

mon ami—diffo kettle alto
So

lightnin’ struck Hopkins

thrice in the barn loft conversion by the charnel house bedside the windowless birdcage
You cannot miss it if you dare look up—

spin the bottle
In Peckinpah slowmo
Nighflight entertainment central
Regular as fireworks
They could all be actors—of course
Just like voices that ring out on the radio
One big Mike Leigh slice
We need a map from here to somewhere else
To get where we want to

be apart from not here just now
—a map from here to somewhere else
To where, for what, with whom?
Winchelsea. Samphire. Pickles.
