weather or knot


weather or knot ( tonk ro rehtaew )

a cloaking, crawling dawn

with croaking hints of frog

misting midland mills

wales is silken veils

of shifting, shrouding cloud

& phantom tangent fog

as sneezing scotland coughs

the peas in london’s broth

but breezes weave by nine

– the west’s a stringing vest

& cats & dogs will piss

upon the realms of men

from looe to timbuktu

until the afternoon

the rest ‘s a shining spell

– as satellites foretell
