Lent

I lent my book and got a review.

Not what I wanted back.

 

I’m fasting now, away from all temptation.

The reward, they say, is bigger than the vice.

Bigger than the satisfaction

of sugar, booze or cock.

Instead I’ll get

the silence, peace and confidence

to build myself a temple.

 

I try to stay away

from all that’s hard and human.

But then relent

when I see he’s followed me on Twitter.
