Left Over Wine


Itís fragile and rehearsed in this mind cask
home pleasures are like the sentiment
of crisp, summer wine.

It mouths Ďget help!í
so you dive unexpectedly
into the freezing brook
through wooded trees
†††         perfectly still.
Only youíve had more wine than usual
         and distortion wins.

The grass is intense
and thereís plenty of green-
itís like having a bottle
†        †††††††† youíve saved all these years.
Blackberries hedge the railway bridge
        †††††††† mulberries give a whole new meaning
†        ††††††† to bottled jam-
†        ††††††† the purple avenger stays before tea.

You say Ďnoí to this dream in your head
itís a letting down of home-field
the school team
you approach fewer each year.



You let the grader scrape the voices in the glade
swing the river rope you missed
†        †††††††††††††† hold your breath longer under water.

You canít remember how many silkworms you kept
or when the blackberries disappeared
         †† but the wine tastes sweeter than it used to.

The old neighbourhood has disappeared in brick
the weathercock is a stable dish
††        †††††††††† and backyard pickets no longer talk.

You turn over, wake in a different world.
