the title got me thinking

we had comics on tuesdays and thursdays

from the middle shop up the hill

sometimes there was a whale

in the story with a picture

round grey with a fountain in it’s head

it’s tail akimbo later

i learned that they don’t look like that

really .

he said

real stars do not have points .

i guess i shall never see a whale

though some bones are over the door

in mallwyd church porch

up the road
