Tuesday 20 December 2022



the tennis,

the boogeyman for the year,

the red herring and sideshow,

the portrait we slap

on top of the shit we've flung at walls,

the complex tongue we only learn the cusses to.

So look in the mirror, friend,

before you wash your face

in the morning.

For there's 

the headline in person:

there's your Putin

staring back at you.

Cutting through the noise:

the real deal. There's Vlad

- the tennis,

the back and forth of it all.

Look nice and hard now, Simba,

at who is staring back.

Same thing goes for me.

Look nice and hard,

wash your face

and hope to remember

just what it was you saw.
