Anything but "Wonderwall" by Alexandra Grunberg

You sound like a bad decision
but at least you aren’t singing “Wonderwall”
I always was a sucker for talent
and a smile that might turn mean

You shouldn’t be taking this as a compliment
or an invitation, as much as a self-condemnation
but if you ask, “who wants to hear another”
don’t pay attention when I roll my eyes

Alexandra Grunberg is a Glasgow based poet, author, and screenwriter. Her poetry has been published in Honey & Lime and From Glasgow to Saturn. She is a postgraduate student in the DFA in Creative Writing programme at the University of Glasgow. You can learn more at her website,
