Ficelle by Andrew Taylor

Descending stairs
past nightly webs

windows open
breathe it’s cooler

watch glass
has scratches

It needs replacing

single copy
sent to Liverpool

collected on
an overnight stay

read it where
it was written

temporary desk
its spilled streak

of varnish picked
out by a slither

of sunlight

Feed the stray
that door stares

it shows heart
