rain like my sorrow

rain     like my sorrow, pools in vacant
spaces,  and is temporary,
             like the habitual voyeur, loose

                        behoved to no-one
only mesmeric in the cartoon lash
                 of its own mechanics
                 like a blond auxiliary
    dull of means

or a bankrupt saint
   humble for the
     wrong reasons

 – resign your habits, blank spectres
the glow, the march, the water

and the fair-minded girls
telegraphed smiles
            and the
            bell rings:
