B: Xxxxv: Measured Response - Poem by Douglas Scotney
'Charming, windless days and nights...'
Are what I said I'd like
When winter came and asked.
(I wouldn't give it the smug satisfaction
of knowing how it stirs my mind
and how I hate the cold.)
'...and happiness with cuddling.'
(Not freedom from crime
world peace, mental stability
and absence of grime.)
