“Blindfold” by Jonathan Butcher

They bask in empty pleasures, with
statements held up by drinks, cigarettes
and past drug glories.

The record collection holds all the right
names, in alphabetical order, under the
weight of the frowning lava lamps.

And let no one dare stand in their way, or
so their motto goes, and any that question
can stand back and bask in the reflection
of their ever present mirror.

And a round of applause now due, as another
weekend of frustration glooms, ready to be
washed down with the stagnant water, filtered
through fading blindfolds.

Jonathan Butcher has been writing poetry for around four years. He has had work appear in various print and on-line magazines including Underground Voices, Black Listed MagazineThe Shot Glass Journal, Fade and Unquiet Desperation. He lives in Sheffield in the north of England.
