michaelmas checklist  (  tsilkcehc samleahcim  )





leaves on the line

a touch of the sniffles


clutching at straws

& hot water bottles


fog of a morn

a tree on the fire


a hole in my boots

a vole in the headland


the death in the eyes

of tosspots in tinsel


a darkening creep

the magic of starlings


a fly in my soup

in need of a punchline


a goblin, a ghost

a roasting of parsnips


with rain on the brain

a sneezing of breezes


sleep like a wood

snore with the dormice


mud in the blood bank

lakes on the floodplains


potatoes in grow bags

no snow - but mistletoe
