Pink Chimneys Smoke

by grimbeau



rave on Thom Gunn
serpentine dawn in fifty six
winkle pickled drainpipe ghost
rave on golden fish

we declined Missus Minniver’s mince pies
& Walter Pidgeon’s piperack flannel
taking off for California
booked an early evening flight

got a document returned

much revised in red
filed it under
red under bed
pillow under head
went back to bed
up at four before

sinful sorcerer sultan swings
rhymes well syncs well
in the Wake of Poseidon

little bell rings
rotten john lydon

brand new angel gets her wings…
