… the daily writing grind …
They said they couldn’t pay
but wanted me to write an article.
That paper makes millions
but can’t spare a few quid to give us some bread.
Only got to Uni on the grant from my dead
Fucked that up
(never did like writing)
couldn’t find a decent job
couldn’t find any sort of job
got sick / scrounged benefits
feeling sorry for myself
left alone, wishing I knew how to write poetry
for a living.

through your shit
music / cutting
up / back
and forth between

it as much
– but for fuck’s sake, use
