Saturday, early morning

Saturday, early morning
Daughter snoring
Tyres outside boring
through rain damp street

New house creaking
Central heating
Knocking out beats in
Panels of steel
 
Five days toiling
Insides spoiling
Gently uncoiling
with Saturday sleep
 
Losses now counted
A life dismounted
Fled unbounded
on Wednesday’s fleet
 
Saturday, early mourning
My old aunt soaring
Seeking a mooring
in faraway soil.
 
MPG 1932-2015
