Poem Favoured – 19/03/08

A rather excellent one by our dear friend Soulless

A Night of Payment

Our dear loanshark,
eternally you impose
a staggered payment
scheme on all of us
walking debts.
We borrow what we forget
you own; we owe
with laughter and jest as currency,
and for all the audacity we muster with age

we never can tell
when the next payment is due.

I, for one, am silenced
for the time being
and no richer than the night
that rents its coat from you
