Justifiable Homicide

Backwater

Turbid water:

frogspawn and dead mite,

leaf and leaf mould,

moulder in water,

and smoulder in fire.

 

In the watersmoke,

a quick refraction

moonlit silhouette,

 

stick strike and flick,

a stunned roach lands

soon dead:

Stone dead.

My first and only fish.

 

March home,

shirt stuffed

with bluff pride,

a natural born

roach killer. 

Nice Day

1001

Voices hear off. Who’s that?

Sotto voce, surely not…

Laryngitis? Going round.

Dan the Man,

very quiet, very soft.

Hard of hearing what?

Panic: King of Song breaks out!

Windows flung shut,

open air freshener

acrid Lavender.

Look out window, see blind woman,

shout hello, silly me

I can’t hear her, radio off,

mute mate shows up, funny looks.

Is it me or you? Tragic

You me: who we? Comic

Heads start to implode.

All I said: ‘Nice Day!’

watch blind woman talk away.
