As a special treat on my last day
in The Arbours Crisis House
that’s closed now
where I’d thrown a mug
at the founder, Joseph Berke,
(but missed) who later
became a Hassid
a few years before he died
who earlier was famous
for looking after Mary Barnes who
splattered her own shit all over the wall
——–we had grilled salmon
and I got a bone stuck
in my throat and
was choking
and couldn’t speak and
Guy, the lead therapist
who I still think
was a bit of a prick said:
‘that’s quite interesting, isn’t it?’
