  You could have a big dipper   

fever dream after rewatching Mad Men by Betsie Flynn

John Slattery bought me a set of new teeth

flashy things drilled into my gums

the envy of all my cats

probably I’m dreaming because why

else would there be ballgowns

swimming pools

why else would my tentacles be out

in the daytime when anyone

could walk past

still I’ve got my human face on

buttoned-up so tight

my neck aches


Betsie Flynn lives in a council estate in mid-Wales with her husband, children, and cats. She feels lucky to be able to see mountains from her bedroom window on a clear day. She tweets @betsieflynn
