Tomorrow Would Be Too Late [REVISED 2]


A wonderful Sunday, two purple lipsticks and purple glasses
bought to go with the purple bag; for my work place coloured
dishcloths & a new trilby - like Rex Harrison wore in the
guise of Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, waiting are

Imitation tattoos for Nici and I to be applied around the eye,
she will have to help me; a hand-held fan in silver and white
for the heat in the office - I lay on the porch’s cool marble
earlier today enjoying birdsong, wInd in the trees

Swimming in a glass dome the sun gilding fir trees; can’t wait
for tomorrow’s new purple glasses effect; must remember to
take vegetables & ice-cream to the office for nourishing
meals; wonderful cabbage and carrots this week-end

My beloved with a lopsided smile telling us of the Alfa he
would like to buy; tonight we must apply our tattoos as
tomorrow morning would be too late…

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
