Factorem - Poem by Andy Brookes

Flibbertigibbet light plays,
wind rolls, drying pavements,
silver with shed rain.
cloud smear the sky,
the ever changing vault 
now stripped of stars.

leaves flutter,
wet heaped against doors,
or fences of peeled paint,
showing raw wood.
gates creak, gutters spew.
a variant shades of gray Monday.
a day for tomfoolery
