the news


in the living room a bigot makes a sincere but pathetic sign of empathy

over screaming bodies carried past BBC cameras

that shake in accordance

to the rules


a mawkish whimper

to such visceral horror

both embarrassing and reassuring

like a gangster’s desperate cries for his mother as he is being tortured


then a charred arse flashes into frame

followed by slim, quivering legs buttered in white burn-cream

hanging limp over a brother’s arms


registering a naked arse

gave me a slight hard-on

followed by deeper, nauseous rumblings

of  immediate retrospection
