on time

Sunday afternoon
Rod Stewart murdering Bob's
'Mama, you've been on my mind'
my slow Guinness cool
as a mountain stream
just like the advert for menthol cigarettes said
days expanding, crocuses sprout
headlights splash through puddles
and yes, you're on mine
but I've already forgotten when
in April your birthday is

    1. Thank you. Glad you liked it! Read ‘The Long Take’ by Robin Robertson – if you haven’t already. It’s amazing.

      1. Oooh, I’ll put it on the to read list 👍🖤

      2. Brilliant Scottish poet who has done something very special with that book. In one of my favourite books of all time without question.

      3. Such a rave review only serves to bump it higher up the list! 😊🖤
