Hero Trek


you don’t kill dragons on land no
you don’t kill dragons on land
you walk on
on your back
your boat
the only dry thing in the mud world
the dragon makes
sump clog sump clog
as you walk
to the bit where mist meets fog
and the shitty water whispers
boatford dryness feed us tomcat
sucks your boat
from shoulders to surface
and as you push off the octopus sludge
takes your right foot
for two things-
to let you know what a winner is
and draw the fretty fish
towards your blood
