abnormality is a knock at the back door –
turns out it’s the wind –

normality is on holiday somewhere mild , and brutal-

X has a squint and a book of common prayer –
Y is statistically plain –

the bishops are in convocation, see the smoke –
the strippers are undressing the holy mother –

the speed bumps are on fire –
a stained-glass god excommunicates his picaresque sister –

happiness has given herself up to the authorities –
can we ever forgive the Vikings for their maturity? –

we must stick together said the ricochet –
I am standing up for the facts, according to the coroner –

it’s all local; ask the cockerel –
the teenager – the corpse.
