(these moments gifted)

twilight hours
two green fishermen check their watches and
nod in agreement

as young thugs on bikes
scoot about nosing
for action

and an aeroplane passes
slowly over

i can see my brown
sweater, black jeans and
crossed legs stretched out
on the grassy bank of
the canal

I’m locked out and
have nothing to do

[May 31st, 2000 on the banks of the canal, Bethnal Green, London, near Rohan Stanley and Bec Neill’s STUFF Gallery warehouse]
