GLOBAL CREDIT

 

-         Peter Robinson (U.K.)

 

 

There’s indebtedness in far memories

of interviews at local banks

that outsourced their own loan black holes,

banks at the mercy of small-time thieves

who got in through the sewer system,

they won’t lend without guarantees

or access to a salary.

 

But at such dilemmas over what we’ll bring

or be allowed to take away,

at the clever solutions brought into play,

you couldn’t not see their spider-plant leaves

as such a world map’s air-routes

to spots we had or hadn’t been

on the double page spread of a flight magazine.
