matt's notebook

soap

'Soap powder for the brain, is it?'
keep your mouth shut
be cool be light
eyeballs loaf around your packet
'Clean me out then'
you in the mirror redraw the line,
you radiate

I'm day dreaming,
you size me up;
'Gives us a quid'
you wrap a packet,
you tourniquet,
you trouser press
you evaporate
