Arriving at work –
Bach’s Concertos are playing ~
People raking leaves –
Before them, did the grass die?
The plants before grass?

You taught violin –
Shafts of light in the school day ~
Sister among boys –
I think we were your children –
and I want to thank you now.
Plants summered outside –
Take them inside, as dark comes ~
Cold creeps from the stream.
Favourite bootleg –
Well worn tape ~ lost long ago ~
Pilots sit on ‘chutes –
Hit – other crew get out first ~
Few pilots in camps.
The last of the flies –
Must think that he’s a legend ~
In his scheme of things.
Listen to Godflesh –
Last bus ~ fits in with the book –
Post flight, wait for bags –
The carousel, they arrive ~
Old nun, beside him.
He stays to help her with hers –
Why do we do that? Strange beasts.
