24 January: An Imagist Poem

AI art: room with window, desk, chair, wildflowers in a jase.

It’s Ideal

It’s small because
it has to be small.

Room for a cup of coffee, and her feet.

Corner view.
Two sash windows.
Third floor.

A wide window sill
for wildflowers.
Jam jar for a vase.

Desk.
Chair.
Lamp.

Rattling traffic.
The overground.
Horns,

and a clattering radiator.

Heels and trainers.
Coats and brollies.
Into the wind

A rabble of litter.
A newsagents’ debris.
A chippy and a döner kebab.

Her coat hangs
from a brass hook
on the door.

The scene is set.

    1. It’s fun to approach a poem with such tight restraints.
