no! he doesn’t miss her, not one bit

by Richard Barrett

does jigsaw puzzles
500 pieces
cannot accommodate on table
1000, too big          in
poor health
sun from behind hits
glasses lens          dazzling
sees only piece doesn’t match
once curtains drawn          it’s
an old scene:
          street life from
around the turn of the last but one
          century          finds in
charity shops          never pays
full whack
contemporary images rare
nostalgic brands
village football
a favourite of his
history of golf         
does jigsaw puzzles on
friday / saturday evenings
while waiting for
to start


At present Richard Barrett is sat down; shortly, he will stand-up.
