Alexia Kirov – Stuffed Monkeys

Stuffed Monkeys

Chauffeur driven, out he shrugs,
purple tie flapping in the wind
like the tongues of Westminster:
Big D.C., Miliband and Clegg.
Out for a fag at
Rochester Service Station.
Time to fill up the tank?
He passes parked-up coaches
headed to Birkenhead or Swindon,
burger joints and toilet queues; claw machines
filled with stuffed monkeys –
prize every time for two British pounds.
