Superintendent Flowers

patrols the public gardens
looking hard
but soft
no drooping
no pests
Gentlemen
may remove their jackets
Ladies
are closed
due to vandalism

His name was Wal from Sweden
who used to work the trawlers
but now works weedkiller
with a mask and a jacket
oilskin yellow

He had a dream
but he can't remember
maybe to go home


~ ~ ~


the room is full of dark collective
any moment
you will run
all of you
not those 2
masters
they'll sit
so you breathe
fall in love
