The Metal Man


by Adham Smart


The metal man cut his teeth on a blade of grass.

He bled like a chimney, dribbled purple death

into the mud of moss. Slowly, his teeth melted

down to the gums, and the fizzing noise they made

will keep your children awake for weeks.

Adham Smart is a writer from South-East London who likes to pretend he is a foreigner in his spare time. He also thinks Pomegranate is pretty cool.
