See Final (NaPoWriMo #26)

Don’t think for a second he’s dead
Dental records
can be faked
masks made
force-worn
wrong men
burned
security an ill possession.

Re·kin·dling (NaPoWriMo #25)

Who highlights hair under house arrest?
Willingly I enchilada owned you
Let each lip buoy like dead fish
Joke-creased shirts
Washed with apple soda
And eyelids were sleep mix
99p for a lb
I sold your parts for immunity
cheeseburger
sweet and sour sauce sachet
and cinema tickets
Don’t regret it
It’s pending on create-a-résumé
I won’t know the job loss
no review life when dead
just loops of walk-out films
with Angelina in
before she was famous

love for you

The Curse (NaPoWriMo #9)

You thought escape easy
like the Add button

Put enough make-up on
for photo shoot
changed pajamas

This is your grave face now
not mugshot
crime scene omelette

Your husband
Jamie Oliver
whips with an open finger

Bolt cutters
can openers
acid
Christmas list

Not Quite Yet The Man You Need To Be (NaPoWriMo #2)

In unsafe houses, housing
twenty year friends who’d pierce
protective vests
for you
you tell her love
because vigilante trained
cult recruits
aren’t badly timed
but inconsequentiality,
men-led Bible study
breakfast youth group
at which you learn
wanking’s wrong.

The lesson her husband
teaches you
is commandment
achievement unlocked Xbox
game trade.

Until you scalp him
she’s his.
