Come and See

It started with a leg of lamb and cooking times and boys at the pub and catching them up and half pint of cider and no mobile in pocket and message relayed by child and guilt oak-aged in a cask and memory of hurt and feeling of trapped and love like a choke-hold and tears that burn and cold that helps and arms that hold and hands that stroke and wishes whispered and howl to the sky and desire to be lone and knowledge of duty and weight of responsibility and unbearable bearing and calm.

Outside sipping chocolate ale

he saw a star shoot across the sky

come and see he called

and we all came back outside

and saw

and we were the best that we could possibly be.
