can’t be arsed

To the middle aged woman in Tescos

The one with the blotchy face

The one who got disqualified

For giving up on running The Race


Your self-checkout till wasn’t scanning

The food you earned to feed selfish kids

And your eyes became leaden with a familiar abandonment

And sunk deep beneath your lids


But my eyes were enthused with affirmation

Cos in a race that only ends with death

It makes sense to just stop running

Stand still and catch your breath
