brighter later

she was much brighter

than me she said

had all sorts of ideas

she’d drip feed

into my head

sayings proverbs mottoes

& I’d suck

all of that shit up

if it fitted

& rejecting bits that didn’t

until one day

she reckoned I’d emptied

her all out

so I began giving back

& she was amazed this thick kid

could pick up so fast

I told her straight

for a girl brighter than me

y’ain’t that clever huh?
