Kerri Shying R #206 - Bullet Train

Bullet train

I want to earn a thousand dollars a week without leaving my room
I want the swagger that comes with being
a barista   and the large beard of wire and twigs

I want to be an internationally-hip barista own
a prize-winning beard            skim an income from social media be
he who dips the bespoke fingers            into local ponds             trailing

ideas across the heads of those I went to high school with
like the lace doily tablecloth Mum let me wear as my
Super Hero cape             at five                                   

I will have plaits            when others have a man-bun
sing out when you want me
 and we’ll talk


  1. I want to be on the bullet train too ... as Rob reminded us weeks ago too, our accountants are all telling us poets to find a job that pays :)
