Blind Date

Winch, Terence

Ask yourself whether you are crying because 

it is always raining in the vicinity of the library

or because there is a very scary allegory of torment

staggering out of the bar and heading for you


I wish you didn’t feel compelled to spray everyone 

at the gallery with the aerosol version of Wordworth’s 

Prelude or pixelate their emotions into tiny red balloons

of melancholia, which you know causes weight gain


My ungratefulness is as big as one impossible parking space

on Saturday night when we detonate the metaphor just for laughs
