karma or calmer?


my money
organised crime

said the red faced

selling arms
to Al-Saud.

i buy
skunk weed.

deemed illegal –

a feeble law.


i hop on a plane
in an hour

Airport Schiphol

then a train
to the main

and first stop off –

my favorite
coffee shop.

wades through the air

brothers and sisters
smoking pot…

hey –
can i help you there?

she presents me
the menu.

coffee, herbal teas
and marijuana –

the marijuana
makes me karma.


i won’t be greedy
i’ll take two

a gram of AK
and Stardog

throw in a cup
of mocha too

how is England?
she asks.

what can i say

not much change
it’s strange,

every time
i want to purchase

i run the gauntlet
sweating it –

an ounce
of weed in my pocket

hoping the police
don’t pounce

this circumstance

i can’t even smoke
in peace….

but here i am
fair and free

the government
collects revenue

she smiles –
hands me the mocha

thank you
i hand back
the menu

sifting through
for a table

to sit and
set to roll –
