No Bid

May 2007, no. 291

In the beginning he’d herd people
clocking up the hours in apartments
above and below him but they heard sink
and shower sounds and turned on washing
machines that spurted later while he was
on the job he’d reconsider part one of
his partner’s apparent lack of funding
proposal paperwork a black mark
to be sure though in fact heartless
people too have thoughts important
hats hover over that imported people
wore down their opponents making
and are therefore more to the point
than for example alarmist neoism
now to the next part I will devote
the best portion of an hour dear god
you have allotted me extra I know
not where the stink comes from or what
nosy questions they will ask but hey
on with the slide show he thought
for it was all public comment
passed him by and he developed
the grim creeping for which he later
became known as fatty of the car keys
and mobile phone companies
keen to make your acquaintance
roamed his networking skills
would like to thank you

From the New Issue
