Frank takes a chance

I am going to the supermarket
to meet my future wife;
maybe we’ll meet in the frozen section
or when we reach for the same bag of rice.

I am going to smile at people
and speak to those
who speak back;

Frank, I am ging to look forward
and everyday take a chance.

A friend who died recently believed in reincarnation, he lost his first wife and son in childbirth and thought he would never love again. He often spoke how he would like to return as typewriter that he may spend his days writing love letters to his wife.

He also believed that the universe combined to put his second wife in the supermarket at the exact time of day when he ran out of milk. They spoke about the last bottle on the shelf and they never stopped talking until he passed away recently. 


Buy this I need milk!

I can’t afford a loaf of bread;
because I posted all my best poems on the internet;
You commented; you liked but
but I still have to visit my kids
on my bike.

Send money now
stop reading my stuff for free
I’m not a bloody library
or a charity;

Stop reading this poem
it really hacks me off;
If the BBC would notice me
maybe I could buy some socks;

Give me a break
preferably not my legs
please buy my anthology
I need milk and a loaf of bread!
