MOLES

55. MOLES

 

Hey you she said

her eyes were red

i want to be hugged

i don’t mean bed don’t

look like that the pets

are fed but i want to be

 

hugged i don’t mean bed

ok i said a hug is fine

then you can share what’s

on your mind I would prefer

more but I bide my time

if that’s alright then we

 

may entwine did I ever

say that you look divine

here in the grounds where

the moonlight shines I

lift her chin but she turns

away over to where the

 

hay ricks lay and after a

pause she turns to say

have you a torch that

works ok perhaps we

can head to the fields of hay

but I don’t mean bed I hear

 

her say as she counted

the rosary beads and prayed

I saw a consultant here today

he found a tumour by xray

and the tumour’s spread

hey you she exclaimed

 

her eyes were red

i want to be hugged

as we rest our heads

don’t look like that the

pets are fed let us

repair to our cosy bed

Actually heart-rending; a loving relationship drop by drop. It took three reads before I realized 'MOLES' likely refers to the 'tumor' found, ie. skin eruptions. Felt very stupid; actually went through 'moles' in Secret Service' and the real animal 'mole' because of the 'hay rick' connection.

The Secret Service idea is really kind of apt.

I like the way the lines seem to tumble down the page, endings into beginnings, one verse into the next until we repair to that cosy bed. A curious read indeed.
