to do in feb  (  bef ni od ot  )





walk the dog as catkins naps

trudge the cusp of blossoming


spot a crocus in the snow

feel the breeze of winter's sting


prance the dance of daffodils

jig with pixies in a ring


sweeten tea as serpents stir

bird the blurs & sing til spring

...

( a u t h o r  n o d e s  )

if you see someone

out & about

& you don't know them

& said person is looking in their pockets

don't go up to them

& ask them what they're looking for

- that's nosy & a bit wank

-

someone did that to me earlier

so i told them fuck off & mind their own business

& they deserved that

( wankers )
