Wandering the laptop aisles
A customer service suffragette enquired
MayIhelpyou One phrase as OneWord
What kind of laptop are you looking for..
One that is for poets I stated
Startled she backed away and glanced up at a security camera
I will leave you alone she replied a little hurt
Sorry to have bothered you
Oh no it's okay I reassured
There probably isn't any such thing anyway..honestly..
So..may I help you with anything else..
Go on..she encouraged
Would you help me..uh..
with some of the..
..shame and guilt I feel..I feel utterly bewildered....defeated
And I'm so spiritually sluggish
And I still don't know what to do with my life
And I still don't know what to do with my previous lives..
Oh that! she waved an arm dismissively
So you're not a real professional poet
You don't earn from it..
After another pause
Lilted such a life-affirming flat-line rainbow Mona Lisa smile
You don't need a laptop then do you
You can just use your....hand..
Yeah I'll do that..
Time for a commercial break
I'll see you on the other side..
I wandered the shopping centre
As the cosmogryal wandering shopping centre
collapsed my annihilation of self around itself
Shopping centres walk with our legs
Fukushima dream-landscapes hammer blizzard miles
No me neither
I have no idea what I meant there
It's a poem
Or is it..
Standing there walking here standing there
I thought she reminded me of an ex who dumped me
after catching me looking confused
while grappling heroically manfully ethically theosphically even
with the cooking instructions on a Pot Noodle
Although to be fair to her
I also once blew up her organic strawberry blancmange
by placing it on defrost in the microwave
And to make matters worse
when the blancmange exploded I didn't notice
Because I was listening on headphones full blast
to a tune similar to the one below
I was wearing her chiffon dressing gown too
Although that bit's not important..Or is it..
She tasered me in the head with her earthed dildo
And as I stirred conscious on a boat
She threw me into the river
And when the River Police rescued me
and dumped me on the shore in front of her
as I choked up shells and a mermaid's necklace
She tutted and sighed
all folded arms she was
the ultimate in weaponised female body-language form
Is this why I pay my taxes she frowned..
Yes the customer service suffragette reminds me of her
So in other words I think I'm in love..
