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

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

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
