Sholver

My body is not a temple,
it’s a sinkhole council estate in Oldham:
unless someone is mad enough to invest in me
and spend a fortune on fixing me
I need to be demolished,
for all the scum within to be displaced,
to make room for something bigger and better
something less damaged
something less hopeless
something more
safe.
