2 February: Just Write

dark storm clouds

Just Write Just Write (revised)

He wants to go the garden centre
and buy some decorative bark for
the hebe bush he cut to the quick.

I reckon cats’ll use it as a litter box,
but he knows that, so I say nought.

Big 20kg bags the size of hay bales.
He buys three because it’s 3 for 24
… or 10 for one. Obviously, 3 it is.

Watch your back, I say, as he groans,
but he knows that. I say it anyway.

And the wind is blowing in gusts,
and the temperature is dropping,
clouds rushing in all directions,
and then the rain starts falling.

And I’m thinking, I might be able
to write something about this.
