17th January 2022


pale sky

over reluctant infants

the dog barking

the slow pulse of a headache

wandering the inner temple

a pair of bells both ring flat


against the melody of sparrows

in the cold winter air.

there's no food in the feeder

and the peanuts have rotted in the damp air

on the pavement outside

a child steps in untended dogshit

that the bloke in number fifty-eight

pretended he didn't see.
