His knee could be an accident
spilling someone’s drink
an ill-timed road crossing
but it’s not.
His leg moves like a building site crane
clumsy through binoculars, but, actually
it’s the precisest of men working levers
making sure he doesn’t bulldoze wrong buildings.
And he’s waited 5 months to bulldoze you.
When will you let him bulldoze you?
No-one cares, helps or hopes you
will be here tomorrow
and if he’s only, bar Peggy, who once
not now though
why not hard hat blue collar outside?
Why not like maybe?
