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
