Night Shift Away From Love

factory love
five minutes til the
night shift begins,
five minutes before I have to
try to switch off the
part of my mind that’s
inhabited by you
and switch on the part that
forces me to pretend and
keeps the cogs turning for
the corporate machine but
for once this distraction is
healthy cos the thought of
you is burning me so
I’m willing to embrace the
man pissing on me to
keep down the flames of the
fire you set in my soul with
all your words and expressions
and perilous beauty.

    Another gem. Intoxicating, raging flow. Solid imagery. Complex and well-delivered content. I am a fan.

    I totally agree with irisoniris. Image, rhythm, and sound, move this one solidly along. —Chagall
