#48 - Everyone Has A Mate Called Dave

He grows from our throats,
head the size of a cricket ball,
continually screaming.

I have tried to close his rheum-gluey eyes
but they do not seem to have lids.
In the end, I settle for mirror shades;

he looks like a baby traffic cop.
At parties, we compare our Daves
like caesarian scars, nodding

in sympathy, and each night,
I sing to him, nonsense mostly,
till his screams and mine
