Post the absolutism, the fall.

An upside down apple is a fragile

Image and Nation together create

N-trop(-e) chér my dear.

Gallivanting about the frosted country-

SIDE of lamb with mint sauce for afters.

Ministrations to the dead.

The body empty-D of all blud, dry

in the cold funeral home.

Stood in the back garden, slacks iron

-ed and pressed neatly as dapper as a bi-

rd on the nearby rowan tree.

My desk is a battlefield of papers, left-over cascarones from Fiesta, paperweights, lighthouse statuettes, and assorted photographs of my kids and I.
