Two Poems

Georgia HAIRE

We blame ourselves for a lack of vigilance

It was when we took our rabbit out for a bath,
rolled him over and saw his stomach full of maggots,
that I realised that yes, we had met before.
The way they had made a small black mask of him,
that was you, wasn’t it?

Warning signs

Motherhood isn’t for me, and so I must keep
throwing the infants off the balcony
—but they keep coming, they all know where the door is. 

Georgia HAIRE lives in London, where she is completing a PhD on false teeth and oral health in twentieth-century Britain.
