On But Not About

So much like
a white upon
flower the pond,

the city ground
I slight of flood
four lights itch

up steam as I
peer it from the
homeward train.

This is a spring.
Cricket summer
to come a kind

of advertising
board these paternal
ironmongers &

bathroom tiles,
gourmet dogfood.
Grass the grows

bolstered& muscular
, writing for the
local newspaper.
