Losers are Secret Winners

By Sonya Rehman

Losers are secret winners,
Bet you couldn’t see,

Your expensive sunglasses,
Gave you an automatic Instagram filter,
And a rock hard heart,

O pretty one,
You silly girl,
And your birkins,

Sad eyes,
Stoner face,
Mouth in a perpetual ‘O,’

His boots are worn out,
Just like his bony arse,
And big eyes full of Daddy’s dreams,

Losers are secret winners,
They rest under rocks,
And places you overlook,
Lahore, you stupid fucking city,

Lahore, you glorious roadside burger,
Infused with crow meat and spices,
An honest man’s sweat,

Everyone’s looking for meaning,
In each other,
Not seeing,

Not feeling,
Letting go, pulling in,

Losers are secret winners,
200 rupee sunglasses,
And a heart full of hope.
