Abandoning a holiday trip
To return and monitor dripping taps for the
Taxidermist bear, to whom would I be talking too now
Whilst Answering the imaginary phone.
There’s a ten year gap between messages
Since the time when We last exchanged pleasantrys
and I know your away and I shouldn’t complain
but the dripping Has come back
can you not hear it from the
I dissipate my inappropriate anger by dismantling the tap
Only to find there is no world in side
Just allotment leeks that lead back
to a white noise tv screen
And a broken mute for the luthier to fix on the list
Of other things to do.
