meanwhile’s cousin


meanwhile’s cousin ( nisuoc s’elihwnaem )

grey between sunbeams
haze between dream’s deep

four jackdaws
in the doldrums of my mind’s eye

the milkman & the postman
swapped moustaches for the day

three pygmy shrews
danced a tango on the patio

lemon curd was spreading
on the top of toasted teacakes

& the grocer saw the ghost
of himself – in a puddle

as a hag in the local rag
married a badger

the courts say it’s illegal
– but maybe it’s love?
