Dax: Love in a cold climate
Part of the PoetryCircle Showcase series.
  • dead sea promise
    I got back last night with a stainless steel chip pan
    and block of lard the size of a house brick, lying there
    I thought of nothing else, olive oil is for wimps
    and no fish worth its salt deserves such a fate to end there

    ghostly, endless night
    effortlessly, winning

    pretty much, girth and gear
    they handed me a spade, told me to dig
    hard work was my friend, called me Tom
    never heard the womb word. We all just
    took a piss, no one spoke of fucking much
    the big girls looked different on a bucket
    never stood nor ate food just same as us.

    passive news is unimpressive
    rabid man rips skin from scull of victim during struggle with pet
    — just kill the bastard, pet
    sensitivity formula for today is not a matter for the hi-lo glee club
    "umpteenth" is a kinda word. Tell the fat lady to keep singing, Prats!

    I was
    first at the boys' crate
    first to round my lips
    sink teeth into silver foil
    feel a hand-chilling glass
    under my nose, share
    in its nourishment
    I was
    in need of change, they said
    prostrate in sorrow, reduced
    to the plunder of thieves
    I never-ever knew God
    but always say grace for the Cow.
