4th and 5th March

5th March.

When I wake up there are six biscuits outside my door

if I eat five then, I think, seven hundred and forty two would be left,

but I never was very good at maths, so perhaps they would just be crumbs.

4th March.


Were there a way and a taste of success

And were I to have tasted and waded,

Then would I still feel the need

For countless cups of tea or would the

Sweetness of success have filled me up for good?


Were there a sound and a screech of dislike

And were I to have sounded and screeched,

Then would I feel the need to sing on and on

And on along with the radio, or would the

Solemnity of dislike have been emptied of me for good?


Were an apple as round as a sphere then I could contemplate

The shape, and speed that it would travel the floor

Between your foot and mine, but it’s a square, now, all

Red and shiny and so far beyond my contemplation that all the tea

And the singing on the radio cannot shape my thoughts into the

Sphere that I would like them to be.
