“Lance lives in the shed

With Frank and Henry

No one remembers why they are there”


Rakes

Spades

And Spiders


Lance used to be useful

But now he’s rusting

It’s not the only rust around here


Aches

Pains

And reminders


Why do I feel obsolete

When clearly I’m not

Sat at a round table

Not meant for Arthur

Hurtling down the lane

Man’s corruption to my left

Autumn overhead


Cakes

Fakes

And piranhas


Fragments of nostalgia

Muddied knee victory walk

One nil to the orange and black


Headaches

Mistakes

And strangers


Must go and check on the shed

Travel lightly to the chapel

Ordinary things to be cherished


Rakes

Spades

And spiders
