PINES

it’s a matter of
where your thumb was
when Thumbelina walked
into your toll-point

this voice
is as abrasive
as children in the park
where larks perch

in cold not sheltered
by old prostitutes
in gold with cats
and salad on mayonnaise

these winter suns
are prophylactic
‘Aurora’
on photographs
of my father and mother
long dead

like empty bottles
where cockroaches have tread
