Title: Postcard from Bournemouth Park

Loose yet searching faded lips

Press wet on cafe cups

And painted on beyond

Are lawn trapped flowers,

Bright unblinking through the shower

Brave as children disappointed -

Learning love's diplomacy.

Brassy bandstand hummy ripples

Spread amorous through pigeons

Puffed and warbled

So publicly rejected.

French kissing in German

Toy golfing in Geordie

While municipal flows the stream

Along the years from wafer ice

And yellow trolley buses.

Electric buskers echo out

From subway Memphis Yes Siree-

And so the picture

We would share,

O sadness sadness

I here

You there.
