We stand around the barbeque, socialising
paralysed in the underbelly of suburbia
And I notice there are mini-humans everywhere
tiny dribbling beings, skulking on the periphery
guarded by swollen abdomens (harbouring even smaller beings)
But they are slippery and steal away

I feel the same but one of them has captured me
I’m dragged into the corner of the yard
now a dark and damp fairy garden
a dragon’s den that eats only full sized people
The mini-me is a she, face sprinkled with crumbs
She looks at me, piercing through my doubts
then pulls on my hand while viciously howling
I tug at my partner’s elbow, push him to the gate
We leave as she watches with sadness.
