empty cigarette packets

have no place in heaven

“handshakes are sinister”

[the state deliberates on a toxins tax]

On Nakuru Road once

a truck plunges into a ditch


the meat that hangs from the front

must have been the driver.




a plate sits on a table

traces of spinach staring

(how does one live in a place where houseflies fear to trend?)

a pro forma invoice

(who first called Kafka’s insect a cockroach

& who cares about Mary Douglas’ natives?)

alcohol spending cannot be claimed

would you need atonement

for the sins of a dead father?
