woman with shopping trolley

She was known as a person who
preached in tongue and screamed and moaned
a rolled up three year old newspaper
clutched in her hand
standing alone

I called her,
“Woman with Shopping Trolley”

It was stolen from Sainsbury
and contained plastic bags
that contained plastic bags
that contained plastic bags
that contained plastic bags
that contained plastic bags

she tied her jacket with electric cord
still attached to a toaster and she clangs when she walks
and she that found the toaster outside a
Cancer Research shop last winter when the snow
fall broke records and the trains were fucked

she stands adjacent the statue
mumbling incantations

and she will stand there
when the aliens land
and the machines turns against us
and the computers meltdown
and the pound becomes worthless
and evolution stops
