Mermen…

***

Our slow train… Of time… And memory… Has stopped again… But this time… It has pulled up… At a station… No clambering down… Onto white… Stoned… Aggregate… Which will be a relief… We might though… Miss the scrub of ghosts… From our last… Unscheduled sojourn… Out here at the  perimeter… The rickety station nominal proclaims… Nineteen-Seventy-Eight… There are no stars… Woz is explaining… That Mister Fox… Is actually… An alright sort of guy… With his cords… And desert boots… And tartan scarf… And polo neck… His green hippy car… As we walk… Through the woods…

His logic is undeniable… It is not the man… That is the problem… It is the insistence… On learning… The language… He is teaching… In a public setting… To boot… It is clear that… Launching protractors… Is not the way forward… The language thing… Though… Will persist… Our global leaders… Have pronounced themselves… Uncomfortable… If not a little bemused… By our recent global protest… Come, come, my dears… What’s sauce for the goose… Is sauce for the gander… Surely… No?… Which is just one more reason… Why… Your flaky understanding… Of government… Is soon to disappear.

There is a photograph… From our sojourn in the woods… Of the Lake District… Woz and Ashy… Sitting on a rock… Woz… Legs splayed… Like a man… Arms resting on his knees… Even from the still… You can tell he is chewing… Gum… Ashy on the other hand… Has for some reason… Taken up the pose… Of the little mermaid… From the famous statue that adorns Copenhagen harbour… Why he would have done that… Is at this point… In time… Obscure… If not… Utterly mysterious… Could he have been aware… Of the verisimilitude of his pose… Even Mum… Commented… On his resemblance… To a girl?

We'd love to hear from you...
