now the pink stripes









NOW THE PINK STRIPES


now the pink stripes, the books, the clothes you wear
in the eaves of houses I ask whose land it is


an orange the size of a melon rolling slowly across the field
where I sit at the centre in an upright coffin of five panes of
           glass


there is no air            the sun shines
and under me you've planted a quick growing cactus












(Tom Raworth, who died on 8 February, 2017.)
