    Mary

    I'm sat in a cafe
    Elvis is on the wall
    My bacon on its plate
    I don't know where I was
    Before I noticed this
    Mary is talking to me
    The mole on her chin is growing
    A volcanic peak
    About to blow
    A baby screams in the corner
    By the pinball
    The crater of the mole opens
    Suspicious minds comes from the jukebox
    I cut uncooked fat
    And wrap it in a napkin
    Mary seems fascinated
    Her chin is oscillating
    Quivering alien like
    Above her banana coloured blouse
    Order 29 ready
    Says somebody in the kitchen
    Mary's chin explodes
    We all hold up burgers and hotdogs
    To catch the ketchup.
    Its raining outside
    I pull up my collar and walk out
    Rain washing red sauce from me
    Pinking the puddles
    A man on the pavement asks for change
    It's Mary with a beard
    And a wet patch
    And a cocktail umbrella held above her head
    We can't go on together
    With suspicious minds
    The moon is between the bank
    And the butcher's
    If I head for it, zombie like
    Beguiled
    I will be at the gate
    of the cemetery.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
