#poem – cosy

 

We thought we’d cosy along in the warm
the dusty path that made us cough
watch flowers twist, follow the sky
huge rhododendrons, perfume, flash
tread on the grass, get a noseful
down to the stream,
squelchy mud, knee-high
laugh, silly noise
then you pinned me to a tree
gave me talk, clouds, a mantra,
self-referential consonants and vowels
tap tap tap a woodpecker called
this is not the place for real
and I’d been mugged, some other place,
had to walk the best I could
Was this dream world? Yes…No?
extra layers, woven layers
live in, watch, shape, enjoy
Questions, old stuff from school
screwed up, binned, get back their shape
and then, at last, we set alight
and let them burn
like the sun
