muddy corduroy trousers

Muddy corduroy trousers

on a trip into town

keeping me safe

from urban clatter & hate

protected by the Earth

put your faith in its brown

you are my amulet

my evil eye - bus home - survived



I went through a yellow phase
jaundice & lemon haze,
but it appears to be clearing
because people change

people change
like the seasons
an energy saving L.E.D light bulb
or larvae
but pleasantly
-so bear with me x


I left my phone in your car

& later on when I realised

 & called it off the land line

a mysterious ringing noise

could be heard

from the inside

of your garage.

This is not a metaphor,

can I have it back?
