a voodoo moment

By Cait

There is a voodoo doll in my front porch
a pin through the heart
a pin through the head
someone pushed this little person through my letter box

more interesting then my blank bank statement

is it my crazy yet dull neighbour who calls the devil
upon my house?
is it a drugged up washed out
wannabe magical thug somewhere in the vicinity?
(there are a few)
(I live in the land of tracksuits and strong accents)
(to be different you pierce your nose)
(amongst other things)
i don't believe but somehow my eyes avert away
and look for something more interesting then a small white person

my friend lived amongst african albinos who feared witch doctors
my brother lives close to cannibals who eat pygmies
my mother grew up with chickens going missing
i have a little doll and someone bigger with intentions

I had a graveyard for a playground
where we played chess
where my dreams were hellfire and brimstone and all those things that are not true
don't step on the crack the devil will break your back
the children all cry out
i stepped and laughed
i'm ignoring all the whispers
because this world is enough
i'm ignoring all the whispers
and talking loudly in the dark
