and

Like a child without insight, gazing through scratched car window on too long journey;

Passivity

that is

Nullility

that is

Collapsing balloons/marshmallow sag.

 

I stand on the edge

Azoy, An Sgurr,

Teetering

Swaying

Into the soft pile

Of 1970’s carpet.

 

Another shaggy-dog story.
