but the table remains
the table remains
remains table

with as many words
you can drum up you
cannot persuade it
to change

Want

sometimes I feel
like that French actor
who may not be French
at all but has a right arm
that doesn’t work as well
as his left

but then I remember
my French
is wanting and I stroke
my beard
instead

.

Fade

fade and begin again
fade and start over
fade and begin
over and again
start over and fade
into the beginning

Ooooh, “We” Send Troops Out Again!

we’re sending troops
to the Baltic countries
and I think of salmon
and how my nephew is brilliant
at catching them

:
Sort of Taking Stocks

you dream of horses
you say and I dream that
someone has moved into
the house I’m usually
dreaming of and now
I have to spend a few
dreams on walking about
looking for another

and perhaps it doesn’t really matter;
the house I usually dreamed of
that which continues to grow
as I enter it and begin
walking was in a sorry state
and you know me
I’m not keen on redecorating
on painting walls and woodwork
on washing old kitchen tiles
and all that

it’s easier to dream up
a new house
