THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Memorabilia” by Australian poet Peter Rose: ditties, slash, stuff, hotel, boxfuls, edition, purblind, borrow, sheet, bookshop, doves, friend
Why go to a hotel when a cozy tent will do?
On borrowed sheets, pots and pans
Waking up with him and the cooing of the doves
Her friend and her knight in shining armour
With his slash edition, his song and his ditties
Stuff outside the tent and boxfuls of fun
Was it purblind that she has to go to bookshop?
On top of the pile was the answer to everything
Perhaps it’s that simple, perhaps it’s that simple
