Best Poem of Colm Flanagan

I Want To Be Billy Collins

And live in the mornings
While the seasons project themselves
On to the panes of Billy’s windows.
I want to walk downstairs
for fresh coffee,
drink from heavy clinky cups
and smoke sweet cigarettes
before and after breakfast.

I want to dance across wooden floors
While LPs slowly spin and play
‘Nights in the Gardens of Spain’.

I’d write perfect poems
As freely
as my wife
writes
shopping
lists.

I’d fix lunch,
Invite friends who have other friends
Who write poems.
And I’d need them no more
Than they’d need ...
