Egg Poem

Red tights

        Blue skirt

the downstairs tree

minus decoration

Pink paper

        brings news

of  ‘Holy Nowhere’

& Bold Street Coffee

Not the Football Echo

Pink ink leaking onto

fingers

Carrot sweet potato

& ginger

Soup

       warms

Number 81

Flowers on

        the reverse

the cardigan represents

Christmas

the boots match the colour

Yellow polka dot dress

completes the look

 

Holiday Inn Express Reception

At last a tree

                with blue decorations

the silver star

could be the colour

of an away kit

Revolving doors open

as if for summer

A diminishing light

a giveaway

Free wifi in your room
