.97.

i envy you

here there were four

 

that time back

one died

another wandered off

got sent away to a rescue

place

 

recently another

my sweetheart

annoyed the people

over the village

rattled their door

dug up their veg

 

she told me

she will trap it too

send it away like

she did the other ones

 

some things come wild

we don’t own them

we can

leave them be

 

she was angry and unkind

 

i have not seen my sweetheart since

i miss her puzzled look

 

so moving on

things are now more ornate

in a rustic mode

me cutting thin slithers

 

so next i shall make wooden wheels

for something

 

the delivery man commented on my dance

i explained i was social distancing while he

told me only two in town have had it and

now got better

 

how would i know

i don’t get out much

these days

 

i explained i was preparing for longer

a second lockdown so he reminded

me we have not yet come out of the first

 

good point

 

i wonder what they are doing with the gravel james

 

the next guy delivered fruit, veg, pop and a little

chocolate

which made me dizzy

 

another  day
