observations on a brass monkey morn ( nrom yeknom ssarb a no snoitavresbo )

birds catch worms
with extra reinforcements

diamond tip beaks
crafty little buggers

wear a pair of boots
as the pavements crave fractures

dancing on ice
like the shite on i.t.v

two white hares
& a pair of ermine stoats

stopwatches counting
out in the leas

sheep shit freezes
in thirty three seconds

harder than y’ nan
on nandrolene-plus

rivers don’t flow
but noses run ragged

scarves upon scarves
fingers in pockets

gnomes are frozen still
by the garden pond’s coma

colder than a wim hof
hot water bottle
