rural affairs

at first they were grazing in the greensward of the vale

then further plus gradient

over that dale





later somehow they managed to acquire passports

many sights their eyes saw

on their extensive world tour





then apparently they went all over the place

they plodded through time

they ambled through space





yes throughout existence with a moo they didst roam

but in last night's omen

the cows came home





forever

the 1st of feb

Head contrary

on the 1st of February

as impending Candlemas

hangs thick in the air

just like congealed school custard

sans the upper skin layer

white rabbits - white rabbits

or a pair of mountain hares?

Beyond the edgelands of January

into the rugged vast of where?

Fuck knows - early days again

no wings but whims & a prayer
