queen anne’s lace  (  a  p o e t r y )




white in the lea's pit

a beacon of soap


handkerchiefs, nighties

a wedding or rope


hangs as a basket

a bastard or bat


lives with the lizard

the serpent & rat


sneezes in woodland

or patches of grass


flecks as a phantom

of feathers & gas


whiskers in whispers

& up with the lark


wild like a carrot

but blind in the dark

mist a parcel

sunken onions

as the marbles

shit the sack


larks are singing

as the village

chitter-chatters

spinning cack?


wraiths are fading

fuzz & phantoms

as the buzzard

bats a flap?


glisten in the

whistle's bristles

on a hillock's

tractor track
