Two poems by Mark Nenadov

Distraction

My quill hits the page,
my character's plot scowls;
Concentration broken
a cluster fly lands on the wall
momentarily distracted.

Cluster Fly

Cluster fly
       magnet to the window
             in clumps
                    of beady eyes
             and see-through wings that fly
             towards his target
       like a bull at a rodeo.
It's also the day a lot of his friends will die
                 So
                 will
                 he.
I can't find the fly-swatter
so I may have to use a dish cloth
and a swift flick of my wrist knocks him
unconscious and skidding on my hardwood floor.
