Buzz flies

Those crazy flies
Those crazy eyes
Flying flapping
tiny thighs
Swarming
sooting up our skies
Dripping tiny dirty lies
Buzz they say
Their buzzing way

These drowning flies
I eulogise
Dreams
immersed in nightly wine
Filled with drowning little flies
Lying flies
bilndly baptised
Buzz they say
Dumb buzzing way

Shadows

A dark knock loiters out my door
I can’t tell what it’s waiting for

Somedays I catch it catch it’s breath
Somedays I brood on where we met

One night it rested on the wood
That shadow scarred like no claw could

And in the warmth of this close home
Wrapped deep in folds of family down

My burning ears and itching hands
Breathe deep, fold down and make a stand
