the house nextdoor has a flagstoned yard



and on again counting flagstones
watched a little by fatty from the gable end, his feathers which yesterday were 
smo OOth, seamless sea mist grey, today
ruffle in the wind

                                                     yeslook (shhh, gently now)

one-a-penny these paces
one of many bruised f                                                      

a bowler hat for my fatpigeon and a tiny brass topped cane
companion in pacing

[this game
an exciting wristcast roll of the dice
                                     (little bitty too much non possumus movement)
                                                              and ‘tell me about your mother’

they really say that, you know  (tiss-you bound) in white rooms]

will you flap down when i am gone, peck at the gaps, the mossysoft borders of
step-on-step,                            smarten yourself out of the wind
