Dream Home

The night before
they are to move in
their project home
in the suburbs

the fridge
the hot water tank
the air-conditioner
the washing machine
the dishwasher

all disappear

the water bed is slashed
the walls smeared with shit.

The insurance assessor
gives them an untimely piece
of advice:

‘You better buy new toothbrushes.’

‘Why?’ the couple naively ask.

‘You don’t really want to know.’

‘I tell you, I do.’

He shakes his head
& gives it to them straight.

‘As a further humiliation
thieves often stick toothbrushes
up their asses
& then return them to the rack.’
