Babygod

 

He lit a match in the darkness
This was not a good thing
She knew to shut her eyes again
Look sleeping still;  Babygod make him go
Fly into bad dust!

Warning whitebone smile

She knowed
He was just the beginning.

Small Fairground

Their voices peal a gamelan of tones
Perhaps there is a paddling pool
Wriggling toe-fish in rubbery water
A too cold breeze…

I only have these little sounds to play with
A rockpool of reminders
Where each sense hunts
And stings another.
