Evening glory

closed and furling

flowers retire

into a future world

Advanced self-defence: infallible strategy

Advanced self-defence

If a zombie comes up the toilet
you can whisk off and fight it,
because you know the steps.

Put some Barbie dolls in a row
because zombies hate Barbie dolls.
They’re afraid they’ll chomp them.

You can also shine a light at zombies.
It injects them
and they die.

Occupy

fire-escape.jpg

At night, a giant
stretched and sketched
pointed and colonial
an X, a wave across the bed.

Awake, I pleat my civic limbs
to meditate
now vertical, a particle
on a pillow, an origami cat.

Six could fit into this space
and do
outside this cave of privilege
and peace.
