A [prop]er job

Skills almost never meet their

labour-liking match:

snatched from lifetimes 

of hurtful experience

and gain,

and occasionally a rather

fascinating pain,

we are given not what 

we can

but what we must.

And so: if you think

I should work for you,

you have to

clarify sharpish what

“proper” means: either 

those reams and 

teams of dark sadness

and never defined

muchness, or – alternative – 

that simplicity 

of purpose and 

love of country and

person true, too: as

true as yous can manage

IT.

And if I am yet to be

surprised by 

realities hidden 

and

obfuscations ridden 

behind those  

grand

mirrors which reflect 

only my fears and 

not truths you say I’ve 

wrong believed,

let us sit down – she and 

he both – and rewind

the errors and mis-

takes and 

givens, for time there is

plenty – still – to 

re-

pair this serious division.
