in all day = rain dread =
i sink into sleep =

yes i am lonely as steel &
didn’t shoot my girlfriend

or plant the bomb or climb
the roof of the old fire station

on new year’s eve
nor kiss Celia on Western beach

or rescue the cat from his rat poison =
around me a long low horizon

like a oiled noose on pharoah’s penis
stone-dead on the seabed near Southport.
