"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

YOU ARE A LIGHTWEIGHT

YOU  ARE  A  LIGHTWEIGHT    IN  A  HEAVYHITTER’S  WORLD

The magazine I bought today  calls to me

from the back seat of my car   Kate Moss

adorns the cover   This summer she will

marry Jamie Hince  my favourite rock star

While  I sit here in  draughty hallways at my

alma mater   writing luminous poems on mud

grey  early Spring  days   Jamie is in The Kills

and has an  Oliver Twist face

 

Allison  his riot girrrl bandmate said: He will make  the sweetest of husbands

 

I know all of this because I spend more time

reading glossy mags than  chasing after that

oh so illusive Can Lit gravy train   Truth is  at

this stage of the game I’d rather be a rock star

than a 2 bit  Can Lit poseur     for sure –
