Kevin Reid


Never Say Die

exit instructions
a suitcase full of hosepipes
a plastic bucket
blood and anti-freeze

preserved brains
frozen heads 
fresh flesh in a flask

people
clocks of all ages
designed for a different time
brought back in an ambulance to the future
their hope of returning to proper democracy

the nub - dying quickly enough

 Newborn

human dune
grows down with gravity

stirred by new life storm


innocence shroud
soft of bare baby

fresh by earth and sky


smooth kind fruit
shine moist in oil

soak cells petal perfect


limb landscape
fold lay and rest

turn in mother mountain
