Rob Schackne #282 - "The elephant footprint"


The elephant footprint
contains last night’s rain
the white cat’s greeting
(and my pleasure hello)

the passing of misty night
the bamboo workers

outside my window light
last dreams everyone
the letters I didn't send
the work that's left to do
a small discarded poem
the sky’s unnatural pink

  1. v nicely balanced
    (which you need to do when involving elephants - in or out of the room)

    I like the last dreams call
    like sleep is a pub about to close
    and someone behind the bar's growling 'time'

    and someone behind the bar growls 'time'

    1. Cheers, James.

      Runs per over?

      I really don't like to talk about it all that much...but I guess it keeps doing me.
