Poetics

A Village Cock.

The last time we talked the weather was fine

Gray, low. The pavements were fine

Enough paint on the walls to undertake a study

Of the fine weather. The last time

We talked it was sponsored by a German,

There was a white screen, a projector

And white walls. I was thinking about blue eyes.

There is a shop along Kimathi Avenue

Where you can get blue contacts fitted.

It was fine, the last time we talked

Someone offered to sell us a village cock.

I like the way you can travel between  social disgrace, and

Sorting pills on the abacus.
