• Praying for Monsters

  • You took it upon yourselves
    to bring us into a kinder world
    your kinda world
    where skylines
    lost the peaks and troughs
    froth lopped off
    insipid pints
    that mostly stand unsipped
    And slipped your version
    of ugly
    out by the back door
    Into a night not worth its moonlight
    as we refused to sing
    the sexless strains
    and misplaced words
    that would blush
    had they the blood
    to rush the veins
    Meanwhile a child runs wild
    down some dingy drive
    as dry as dust
    praying for monsters.
