Post No Bills Poem by Alistair Graham

Post No Bills



I flick through
a carpet pile
of envelopes, bills
paper, poetry
A4pads and words

and then

I laugh though
I shouldn’t so
I’m told:
at requests
demands
final …

and they

Cry
for skin, for flesh
for blood
for breath
They cry
for strength
for mind, for time
and for my death

even so

I will deliver
the minute
I’m ready
Puke out
pay up
Money
in lieu of
life
