idiot magnet

the world is full of idiots

& some of us attract them

wasps to a jam jar

ants to sugar spill

it is seven in the morning

Pamplona still

in that there are hundreds of us

yet quiet as the grave to come

standing in Estefeta waiting for the bulls

I have cleared space beside

and as they run towards

I turn

& dammit

I have pulled an idiot in

leaving me nowhere to go

& all I see is his idiot grin

as the horn grinds my back

& the bulls run over me

I have crossed continents for this

put the long effort in

& the idiot is long gone

leaving me with consequences

while he took my fun
