Over me climbed the brand

over me climbed the brand new clean
shaped to present the high county court judgement
the product as real living that is financial
history of women and man in order they not creep
though new towns, like Swindon, anew without
roots at least for storytelling about joy
a silent buttress on the houses of the clever
experian is the notebook of our online
personality, much more of a man than
say a fighter in the pubs and clubs of Dover
I’ve not the excuse of sex in a civil partnership
to release myself from the serving subletting
here I am locked, soon to be closer even
