.avoiding shrinkage .
there is no need for politics when choosing your sweater,
is there sir? no need to have an embargo on scottish goods,
they are only asking, so far.
it is best not to speak your mind when working, to have
woollen garments dry cleaned to avoid shrinkage.
i understand democracy, yet we have our own feelings.
we fold the fabric tidy, colour code and talk of our lives
look at the new coins, aren’t they pretty. will the machines
closing. music blesses us home. listen and you
may cry too.
