#poetry – faithful lover –

Like a faithful lover
I was going to put your photo you sent me
onto a T-shirt
but not only has the print-shop gone
but the whole block is now a car park

I got into the habit
of imagining it there on my chest
like a shield or a badge
of honour
as if you exuded your image in ink
out through my rib cage

After a while
I noticed on one shirt
that you actually were there
think Turin Shroud
which is very apt
considering you’re dead
good as
