five brief poems

by ayaz daryl nielsen

floating between two
mummies in the museum
their shared memories

* * *

through my window pane
evil and vile, face-to-face
I'll just close the shade

* * *

street lights turning on
beneath each and all of them
shadow's gossiping

* * *

farted in the den
the day before yesterday…
she can still smell it

* * *

screaming from behind
locked doors two, three, four and five…
all the screams are mine!
