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


( ? )
