Globalisation Has Not Delivered On All It Promised

A German firm makes wooden bow ties

A Korean one concrete clocks

I can buy Dutch knitted beards if I like

to keep out the biting winds

hurtling down

from the Arctic Reaches

or across

from the Siberian marches

a global inspiration deep in my urban cell

sorry again for the joke card that never really

was a joke

a sad sorry friend and that’s

just me

flicking through a cyber magazine alone

a brain keyed into the universal consciousness with

blind spots and frequency disrupters

dialled up to the max

sick of sitting here in the kitchen

staring out of the window with

the radio on.
