Grey Lynn (12.00 noon)

[photograph: Jack Ross (2006)]

Every girl’s a babe

in Jackworld
Annora’s mother

pilloried on 12 o’clock TV
not answering the door

We’ve had her up before
she’ll keep on doing it

feral old man

tethered in the yard
titanic mounds

of garbageThey’re afraid
of dinging up their cars

They always stop

comforting me

when I stalked out of Poetry
a good kind woman

turned into the butt
of media mikes

& yetthe squalor
freaked me out

that dark reporter …
