"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

DON’T STAND SO CLOSE

DON’T  STAND  SO    CLOSE

I find that I am moaning    loudly

in public places   & saying   Oh God

quietly    in private spaces      I can’t

figure out if I have stolen an umbrella

Or not      Someone removed mine           *(Giverny inspired)

from it’s hole    and left me with

a   gunmetal surrogate

 

I snapped it up with aplomb

 

Now a driving rain has made a mess of

my hair   And if I ever spy   said Monet

on a street corner   I will flay  the bastard    handling it
