Last Call

I’ve got more hunger than my body can hold.
Bloated with want, I’m the man who waits

for the moon to drown before I let the lake
grab my ankles & take me into its muddy mouth.

They say a city is at the bottom of all that water.
Oh, marauder. Make me a drink. I’m on my way.

Saeed Jones, ‘Last Call’ from ‘Prelude to Bruise’.
