Friday 9th June


Crying spotlight woman eats wires,
Immaculate monochrome polka-dot fringe,
Tiny mouth looks away,

Hurt reads the morning rag,
Down a nose at a ringing phone,
Summer legs exposed in the luggage rack,
Shock poll predicts backlash,

Whispering lips talk into hands,
Slow running lists,
Fists longer than arms,
Secrets concealed in crowds,

Bored sleepless stares,
Resting in palms on elbows,
Chisel-toe sharp,

A ghost of an idea of someone half remembered
