This word comes from where he stands,
from where he looks up the street at
workmen clambering across roof tiles,
ladders and scaffolding and white vans,
and he stands at the kitchen sink, sunshine
in ribboned streaks through the window,
and he starts saying a word, but stumbles
on it, like navigating uneven pavement,
and he says his brain is working slowish today.
And that word is soffit.
