.the plan.

a cunning plan, i hope
you pull it off

i wish i could come too

in my black and faded things
to disappear into the gloom

most folk are kindly and
will feed a small and needy thing

i did when four came to me,
only two remain, darling
and sweetheart

darling being the boldest
here
now

it is light so much later
i woke so much later

the journey the week having
taken my energy
up we went in the funicular

to the wool sock shop
and bought three
for christmas

presently we do not
celebrate that only
the facts

that we are family
that is is midwinter then

and we require cheering

what do you do?
