Asleep in a haycock

Jack got up at two

felt his breath - stopped.
              legs buried
a foot within
           a sock without;
        he had gone about

all day and fought
the spray of bullets meant
for a dashing hare

instead a father
with wisping hair
sour breath
and fragile heir

had kicked a load
of cold buckshot
into the leg his
bod had birthed

novel and lurid cause for his tacit mirth.
