Ode to the Fly

Flies are such wondrous things.
They buzz, they smell and they flap their wings.
The little critters come in so many colours,
Ebony, apricot, yellow, white and even ambers.
They hatch from an egg to form an adult in ten days
Indeed the grace of God shows in many ways!

In gay abandon they fornicate.
What joy- when with one swish,
Of my forcep, the fly I castrate.

Black Pain

Pain and blackness
Swirling in my head
Far into the distance.
Hitting behind my eyeballs

A million sunsets
A thousand moonrises
Flash in my head
Unending possibilities

Cinnamon and scandal
Stories of a suicide
On a lazy Sunday afternoon
heat makes me hallucinate.

When life is no longer worth living,
Should I jump from a building?
Hurl myself into an electric box
Or jump in front of a speeding train?

Unending possibilities.
