it almost found me once
pissed in a cheap hotel room,
the mini-bar emptied,
I read three pages of the Bible
that I found tucked
in a drawer next to the bed,
got to the part where God
said “be fruitful & multiply”
before I tossed it aside
deciding to browse
the pay for view porn instead,
scrolling down the titles
it’s clear what’s on offer
selecting a suitable film
& as I reach for the tissues,
my eyes catch the small
innocuous leather bound book
sat on the bedside table,
but there is no hesitation–
even without a preview
and with a £4.99 price-tag
nympho-lesbian zombies
just seem more appealing
