THE OLD MAN SITS IN A TREE

 

 

It’s

a bad sign

the cockerel sings

out of time.

 

The hen lays

a bad egg.

 

What they don’t know

is

I’ve a fly swat

get rid of them all

cockerel, hen and old man

 

keep them in thrall

in my nightmarish dreams

 

not all it seems.

 

The old man

leans on a gate.

Sky darkens

a bad sign

the dreams are back

all mine.

 

There’s a woman

in the tree

perched precariously.
