poem for the day

To the spider in the crevice/behind the toilet door

i have left you four flies

three are in the freezer next to the joint of beef

the other is wrapped in Christmas paper

tied with a pink ribbon

beside the ironing table in the hall

should you need to contact me

in an emergency

the number’s in the book

by the telephone.

p.s. i love you

Janet Sutherland
