. haircut day.

as for working shoes or boots
mine were expensive in their time
bought with guilt over ten years
now gone thin below

i asked the cobbler how much
to repair
he said too much more even
than the original cost

me with my foot booted on his
counter

my soles get cold
so i bought those woolly things
to put inside at 2.50 per pair

things will last a while longer
while my soul is warmer maybe

a new bike for you this winter
james

you have been good?

my car is mended, came back
too late for the day so we went
by bus up over and past the power
station

with the winter sun slanting up
and back by lunch in time to

light the stove, to do the laundry
enjoyed not having my own
transport a while..
