Kingdom Come

Rural Route Three.



This is God’s Green Earth

Where Hope applied

And got denied.

Where teenage brides

Watch children ride

Hand me down bikes in

Hand me down clothes.

Heads down riding fast past

Boarded up houses.

Past lives and

Past spouses.


Staplegunned in plastic.


Ripped from hinges.


In the cupboard.


In the sink.


Scraping the ceilings.

Beating their wings in silence.
