Pink Liquid

The kid
in the pushchair
swigs pink liquid
and stares at me
extraterrestrially

Stop-Time

Impossible dreams are the best
long sessions of anything
to shift thought elsewhere
but they stick around and breed
make everything go slow
like after a surprise punch in the face

once was

I walk past your grave often
see who's left flowers
I left a photo

Bidding

If you lived next door
I think I'd look after you
but you'd rather be a dollop of dead meat
in someone's fridge
