Where the leafy light leaks in
the fridge is cloud and leopardskin.
Under a magnet (Biffo the Bear)
a postcard from Paris (wish I was there)
but home’s where the kids are,
socks on the stair.
Once blind as Homer I’d sing did you wish
of sightless St. Lucy, her eyes in a dish.
But now, like a pool shark with only one ball,
I shall do nothing, nothing at all,
but bitch about Connolly’s pram in the hall.
