Saturday – night

So, home and the rest of the afternoon

i don’t remember. The sun had shone

in the rain on the walk home and later,

rain. The clouds at sun-down made way

for stars and i thought of a house we found

in the wilds, miles from the mess down

to my trembling hand.

  1. Great to see your guys writing on receipts…I always use supermarket receipts for drafts, they’re always around, a brilliant white on the back inviting a few words and always a narrow frame in which to work! The house, the hand that closing line intrigues me to no end, fratello!

  2. it does look like it might have been written on a scrap bit of paper!
    (can’t) remember this – funny: you probably wrote it on the back of a bottle store receipt!
    that kind of coincidence i take as an encouraging sign, Thanks, Dean

  3. a trembling hand, a trembling day: This reminds me of poems I’d find in my note book, or on scrappy little pieces of paper— a shop receipt, from the bottle shop that were mostly illegible…you wrote something in another poem, a long one recently: ‘Remember this..’ I recall writing the same thing, remembering only writing ‘remember this’, but not what I’d asked remembrance of!
