Yesterday two opposing lows
one called Hector, the other Storm #7,
blew into the garden. Kicked up
leaves as if it were child’s play,
and before leaving, knocked down
the neighbour’s wood slat fence.
I think Alison’s gutters are blocked
with leaves. There’s a waterfall
spilling off the back of her house.
And the seagulls are still riding
the wind, innocent as air.
Note: My eyes misread “laws” as “lows”, which considering the weather this week was highly intuitive on Miz Q’s part. My mistake. Sometimes you just have to go with it.
