a vigilance of watches. a fraternity
of cigarette packets. a whispering of
scarves. a digressions of shoppers. a
black dog of Sundays. an undertaking
of Mondays. an overkill of pigeons.
a misunderstanding of doctors. a
pedantry of expatriates. an alienation
of neighbours.



From the Park Bench

baby placed neatly on grass –
the crying & cooing    i-pods
insect-buzz    downhill rant
of car hoons    a plane leaves
but not its disturbance   &
at the top of the slippery dip
jubilant squeals    from those
far too young to ever die
