Fucking ‘Cello Music’ by Paul Tristram

“Come here… quickly… bring my phone.
Look, next door, that new guy who’s moved in,
is nuts, absolutely barking mad.
He’s sat out there in his back garden
on a stolen beer garden chair
-what? of course it’s stolen… you can just tell-
with blood all down his
‘Nobody Knows I’m A Lesbian’ t-shirt.
He’s got another black-eye
and cordless headphones on
listening to fucking ’Cello Music’
so loud that you can hear the tripe from over here.
See the way he’s smoking that cigarette…
it’s never right, is it?
I mean, it’s like his hands are dancing with ghosts.
He was out in his underwear shouting at pigeons
two mornings ago…
this is getting scary, for Christ Sake!
There’s probably a ‘Body’ in the house…
maybe lots of them?
And look how calm he is… it’s disturbing,
we should call someone about all this.
What’d ya mean, what’s he done?
Haven’t you been listening to a word I’ve said?
Upsetting normal, decent people
with his lunatic shenanigans.
Needs locking up and putting somewhere secure,
I’ve never been so unsettled in all my born days!”
