you’ve mellowed quite a bit
your tinsel compliment

years on
a night in the country
all grown up and accessorised

standing under a floodlight
auditioning hundreds of winged hopefuls
flinging themselves at the whitegold centre

you point to the real moon heaving
over the dark sill of the range
and I say

that’s not the moon

it’s too bright
too fast
that’s a fire
