This morning it was stormy
Lightning and thunder
Rain whipping in
I went to Tesco
To buy wine

I bought a chicken salad sandwich
Left it by his sleeping
Or dead

Surely my country
Ain’t good enough?
Giant green bag
Containing a man
A person
A son
From someone
Not done
Not yet

We can still chat
A conversation
About writing
Me poetry
Him a children’s story
To be so humble
So small
So green
Have you seen Mark?
What did you do?
Put on your mask
Protection from
And you
