from FAST POEMS, a new sequence in progress. These are poems written quickly to catch one thought or mood.

My Favourite Drink

was in the Red Dragon
in Penderyn
near Hirwaun
in mid-Glamorgan
where I ordered up
two halves of Dark Brains
and took them out
to drink on the grass
and a great big apricot moon
bulged in the sky.

Remembering this,
in words not dissimilar to these,
I count myself lucky indeed;
as I do
that you love me still
and the end of us both
is a good few years away yet.
