Stuart Rawlinson #3 - Monopolies

Luck builds on luck
Confidence on confidence
Money’s numbers
Bulge in water
But there is no monopoly
On abstract ownership
No overdue returns
On borrowed books
No flagging up
On screens you cannot see
Just the slightest of tugs
Muscles push up
To the surface
Around the eyes
That give away
Concealed debts


  1. Ah. The muscles
    that give it away
    that tell the story
    how the truth lost
    out to the spirit

  2. Yes it's always the muscles (and other bodily parts) that betray us - and give away our concealed debts (and other not so secret secrets..)
