Vernal stirrings

                                              A & B, frisky


foyer's cat-sprayed dado walls
welcome mat in tatters
a neighbour announces
the first cockroach
of spring

fresh southerly change
chance of a shower
tell the dirty sacred ibis
feasting on boutique rubbish
from the skip
behind the Italian deli
to wing it

oddly elegiac
turning on the variety show's
latest episode
garden power reigns supreme
blue collar sensibilities
fill each fresh poem
and minds meet
