Shelbourne Summer Afternoon

for Jamie

When scouring the grass
in the garden of genius boy
spoons can be found
he uses
to fix his bike

spoons to abuse zebra spiders
with, make them flip
over a hot cup of tea
yet object to insect torture
by means of magnifiers

a lying promise,
a pre-summer breeze
makes the grass shudder
and skin crawl

bloglag: since June 17
