what it’s like

buy one get one free

do you see me?

the bills got paid today…

(almost a third of them!!)

one day we’ll break the shape

the mortgage will be paid

and all the bills will be

up to date

i will

buy myself a

bottle of wine and

invite you over for something

other than

crackers and butter and

we’ll dance together

covered in tattoos

smiling as we


over and again

all that we’re

meant to buy with our

hard earned overdrafts

while other people

laugh at us

and our


they will pass by us

in limousines and taxi cabs

as we walk the city in

last years’ shoes

laughing because the

rest of the bills

aren’t due

for another week yet

and the dentist

can wait

while my tooth aches

for another
