Another day in paradise:
Locked down in my place
Of subtle introspection
And outrageous fortune.

Savouring the sweet scents
Of ‘Le perspiration’ and ‘Le boredom’;
The gentle, beseeching touch

Bewitching sights and sounds
Of out of tune guitars

The incessant clacking
Of typewriter keys and backspacing.

Reflects the enmity of it all,
Until I realise I’m not the only one.
