i left the window open


i left the window open  (  nepo wodniw eht tfel i  )

i left the window open

& the mist crept in

like the ghost of a ninja

or a long lost cousin

through a gap in the kitchen

as the full moon bloomed

so the clouds fell down

like a cloudy humpty dumpty

& then wandered on this land

like a flockless shepherd

in the hinterlands of cygnus

with the signet rings of swan

while i napped on my hammock

in the upstairs airing cupboard

as the broth swish swashed

& the fog washed the dishes
