My son is a bat.His eyes blink when darkness comes.His body stirs with life.His limbs gorge with blood as he sets out through the cave of nighthis roof the starsthe moon a big white eye watching.Attracted by the false lightshe mingles with his batty friendsweaving in and out of nightclubsendless partieseach other’s placestill sensing the sudden ebbof darknesshe flutters homea cloaked Draculato the hollow of his roomwhere he will sleep all day.

my mum

My mum is a general.She stalks through the housetelling me what to do.She then sleeps throughout the night.But when she wakes up.....her medals clanking, stars shining& roars us to attentionshe barks orders as she chargesthrough the house:" Lisa, do the dishes ! "" Lisa, clean your room ! "then crawls back to her bedroomwhile we, her dutiful soldierscarry out her orders.
