November 4th


November 4th

The irritant geese in their stale formation-
blind Kay trying to pin his broken mind
on the ice floor of a grandiose metaphor

The chirruping messages of the yew trees
a dumbshow ; goldcrests tilting and skirmishing
amid the  blood red of fairytales

everything is a snipping and unpicking
those that don’t feel it
have missed the  needle’s point.
