Sport 38: Winter 2010


page 105


It's always raining.
I'm always in the dining room
with the iron
listening to Joni Mitchell.
You are making your way
through the house
as always.

There are always
silverfish in the books
by the window seat
and the curtains
are that hand-painted orange
and brown colour and
was there green?

The sun is always shining
and we are in the garden.
I'm picking redcurrants,
you are looking for a rat
under the wood bin.
I always say
What if it's just a brick?
