Majella Haugh

Behind a lake of iced coffee & whisky neat
a real Fox sits
flickering into clouds (of particles)
rising from crumpled sheets
of a man who's sealed windows overlook
a city of love
of hot & cold
far from the heartlands
(now industrial wastelands)
his home sweet, a sickly diabetic
left now with only samples of a life
spilling onto the ground
beside torn pages of gideon
