broken october


broken october  (  a n o t h e r  o c t o b e r  p o e m  )

a scatter of branches in phantoms of prances

& ganders with antlers in staggers of dances

a mist in the mizzle, a fist in the riddle

a maze in the haze of the fade-fiddle-diddle

or bitch in a battle, a witch in a cackle

as swan is the addle with bats on the saddle

at then in the morning as woodland is spawning

an octopus crawling with tentacles trawling

& down spins the plover as brown is the clover

it's piss it & biscuits - it's broken october
