Kim Källström (Life)

Life is a loan signing
an unexpected panic buy
in the January transfer window,
life is a Kim Källström
it comes out of nowhere
and never ends up
the way you plan it to be,
a loan signing,
only here until the season ends
when it must return to
the infinite number of
distant teams untelevised
supported by the unseen stars,
before the season ends
I’ve got lessons to learn,
people to encounter,
music to hear that
reduces me to tears,
crowds of drug-fuelled bodies
sweating shouting singing,
partners to find,
sex just for pleasure,
love to find,
sex just for love,
hearts to break and
women to break mine
until it toughens up,
gothic European cathedrals to see,
mountains to climb,
lakes to camp by,
cities to dwell in,
bars to get wasted in,
kitchen floors to wake up on
with an aching head and
an upset stomach,
busy streets to cross,
favourites cafés to sit in,
books to read,
conversations to have,
friends to make and
friends to lose,
joy to embrace,
pain to overcome,
beaches to lie on and
motorbikes to ride
on winding coastal roads along
the cliffs overlooking the great
blue curve of planet earth and
cold beers to drink in sweltering
summer nights
cos life is like a loan signing
and every Kim Källström must
embrace every second
every emotion
every experience,
never to shy away from
new paths,
dark corners or
difficult puzzles,
just do the fucking thing
so when the season ends in may
you can smile on the plane that
flies you back to
FC Eternally Never Televised.
