Jeffrey Park ~ Muerto Pareo

He was known to the locals
as Muerto Pareo – the Standing Dead.
Which was a bit of a laugh
as no one had seen him on his feet
since the night his old lady
lit his armchair on fire
just to demonstrate that he was capable
of some voluntary activity.


Jeffrey Park lives in Ebergötzen, Germany, population 1,800 and home of the European Bread Museum (really). He teaches English for aspiring scientists at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and occasional writes poetry.
