Bloody sperm

Poetry


under the lamp post, a dog sniffed

and started to bark

 

a car was advancing

the dog approached 

the car slowed down

looked at the base of the lamp post

then hurriedly moved

 

three guys were coming, talking and smoking

while walking past the lamp post

they watched, ran and disappeared into the darkness

 

the highway buses, trucks and cars passed unmoved

 

another dog came and joined 

they barked together

then the bloody fruit of the sperm started to cry

 

“to live or to die?”
