Postcards from Malthusia DAY FORTY-NINE: Cara L McKee

Afternoon Light


The sun laughing like

Tories outside a 

Sure Start Centre, like

something is winning

in all this, like

it’s my time to shine.


The garden growing like

fuck me it’s Spring, like

taking over the world, like

this’ll keep your busy, like

everything is happy 

without us.
