Death gas manufacturer

Day old rainfall

Muddying the paving stones

With rainbow fumes

Exhausting stays in hospital bay

Wings charred after accidents

Taken home and loved regardless

Body part jigsaws on aerial scales

Weighed with media justice

Open grave photoshoot

Someone else’s child

From another world

Hasn’t been seen since last night

Pretend tears like a crocodile

Under the streets

In sewer streams hidden

Beside concrete dreams

Graffiti poetry

Scrawled on homeless houses

Washed clean

Slick white and surgical

Procedures correcting the city


Words on brain, brain

On tracks

As I step in front of the train.
