i rarely use
the services of the bank
but today
i stood in the teller queue
behind a young man shopper

in his recyclable
high vis carry bag
was a single 1.25L popular brand
soft drink and
a largish bag of potato crisps

i couldn’t help noticing
his up-sized personal account
his high-risk investment portfolio
recommending to me
a life with too little interest
