Post-May Day


white spirit in hallways
everything after winter
wants cutting and trimming
reading and waiting while
garden advice drifts up the stairs
smoke vents implacably from
a chimney in each stack
a draught through all the doors
in the house ajar persistent as
a Watchtower hawker but
today is Sunday and our
front door is wide open for
an hour while the jamb dries

wonderful late Andrew Crozier;
a rainy Sat. though here; job upheaval;
mostly Old Time music; tea; “love is lovelier for lust”;
May birds, air; hardly purpose but pleasure to it all;
and later, a walk, alone.
