2018

Stopped buying CDs.
Old gestures rest better
like heads spiked and pitched
in the sand, flag flaring
to the world.

Hardcover books with spines
smooth and unsullied as newborns’,
un-kissed by the sun
and the wind;
pages yet to yellow.

Fashion feigns goodwill;
all the class and depth
of an anthill,
memorised quotes; prints from
gallery gift-shops.
