time to open up…

by grimbeau

…belated birthday cards
cautiously pessimistic
murmur down below…

Will there still be Fennel cakes & Indian ale for tea?

mauve creams &  nice ointments salve
bruises aches lacerations
let us sing a daft song of sixpence
Baked in an Bean

Miser winds up radio
Widower haunts bungalow
Ghost of Xmas done

Sweet pea inside glum drum hums
My favourite things
Howls for hope & provenance
Thinks like ships in bottles
How did they get there?
Most of them sleepwalked
Others saw the writing
On the wall·

still do
mussed by brutal firelight
