Treasure Island

Ivan Donn Carswell


In-Between


you caught me in-between
those things I didn’t start
and the few that
simply got away

a dozen red ensconced on
dining table doesn’t mean
commencement of a
monumental drunk

it’s rather more intent
to read each label carefully
before I lay them down to rest

but somewhere in the middle of
a sandwich
planned for lunch and need
to bake tomorrow’s bread

plus espresso machine
prepared coffee
– events
went off the beam

should explain I do
not see these things
as jobs to do but mood effects
which gladly seize the day

and yes, those are Xmas cards
maybe 2 (or 3 or 4) year’s worth –
they kept arriving as it were
out of the blue...

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
