Antiphon (NaPoWriMo #22)

Forget rehearsal practice audition
I am lyric ready

You are established
like a previously owned company
granted freedom and consequently
a flag change
leadership shift
currency invention

Equivalent to a dollar
I spend you quicker than travellers’ cheques
travel money cards
double digit notes
M and S gift vouchers

I’ve got the coin change
which only means there’s more of you
crunching in my fists like sea stones
or blending ice
finely chopped
to thick liquid
ready to slurp
or nerve suck straight to brain freeze

This is your anthem
