Do you have a poetry section?

Great question, sir. Follow me.
Here you go: where Shakespeare ends
poetry begins. That goes for our shelves
and for my views on Shakespeare.
Good day to you
. And off he bounces,
his knees clicking like the top of a critics’s pen.
The tassels on his fluorescent yellow and green
face mask dance like they want me to follow.
He fires a finger gun at a colleague
organising the self help section
who raises a thumb that has seen better days.
