Sunlit Cascais


Today the sun shines

Over the bay, a pilot boat

Is going out

To take a small coast ship

into Lisbon.

In the night

the couple upstairs

made robust love

Plaster fell as snow

on our bed.

And that was ok

Fucking is better than war

I know the woman

often see her in the foyer

she looks haughty and chaste

and unsmiling.

Not that I would tell

about her nightly desire

but the falling plaster

it is a worry.

Be careful Jan;
First the plaster....then the whole ceiling.

So good, I could hang this on my wall Jan. Grim observational humour to the fore. As worthy as any classic novel I have read.
