Andrew Johnston


Shed years,
an overgrown garden,
something the same, again,

that had changed –
day the cousin of an earlier day,
fruit late fruit from

the same green tree. A boy’s brush
paints everything
the colour of sky –

years days trees us.
(The sun comes to rest in his hair,
beside his bright blue laughter.)
