No 53


If someone
Dies today..

Under some cloud
Or buried
Under a mountain of debt

Poked and prodded
For some signs of life
In a decayed corpse

Locked in
a house
for 2 years

Don’t say

I’ve been there

Or say

I gave a concerned look

because only the bailiffs called

and wanted to see the woman
behind the door
