#poem – dog land –

In the squirmy
dog-land of mud & leaky boots
I slept an age
cold & hungry for a hug
& a hand to touch & drag me
out from clogging stickiness
I waited from waking ’til afternoon
like a child fed on hope & American movies
& ate vegan sausages
& pressed my mouth into wet soil
to stop me breathing
Do you know how old & crystalline
you have become?
I’ll play the angel
in my bastard way
& you’ll put effect before cause –
but whatever was
in my head
in a box
Do Not Open
