The Movies that Make You Scream!
by R David Fulcher
This poem follows on from the poem 'She came calling'
The burnished stainless steel doors were closed,
a sign on a string simply stated ‘Out to lunch’
and the forming queue shuffled and mumbled
complaints about Tesco managing 24 hour opening.
It was a lunch break of Olympic proportions
that stretched on through days of talk
about the weather, grandchildren and
the cancellation of the number 32 bus service.
The need to urinate or risk internal explosion
was an unexpected but comforting feeling,
that even in death there are rituals and rules
to be observed, but nowhere to piss.
For two days the queue hopped from foot to foot,
made dried prune faces and clasped hands with thighs,
the first wet crotch hammered home the realisation
of where we were, and where God wasn’t.
