POEM: Scum

broken piano

Come on, Reuben,

Let’s go back to the floor

With the lowlife and the scum

And wander among the ruins

Of all the food you forgot to sweep up

Constructing architecture from divine decay

My dignity is only as heavy

As an armadillo’s footfall

Don’t tune the piano just yet

I’m still savouring its ugliness
