Pernicious anaemia

is the path
of death
you can block it
with B12 vitamins
but when they are used up
the enemy
continues on its way

you cannot control it
it doesn’t
to an appointment
in your diary
it’s desperate
for death

all the targets
are hit at once
turning your body
into rubber
and just as cleverly
it attacks your mind
as if it were
burning paper

pernicious anaemia
is Alcatraz
and Auschwitz in one
it takes
all hope away
except for God

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.

  1. Eish! That’s not good. But I loved the painting of Big Al it led me to – I have a character of that name in one of my books. Looks kind of like him, but without the dog. Big Al didn’t have a dog, I suspect his wife would’ve let him.
    Look after yourself, Michael 🙂
