Andrew McNeillie

for Sheila Pehrson (née McNeillie)

They so rarely reach here now
You’d be forgiven for thinking you’re dreaming,
The dream of eternity, or some such,
You with your goose-wing westward prospect,
And a puddle blowing at your door:

Demisting your spectacles in a cloud of linen,
Squinting across the flapping morning
To see how their true aim’s flown,
With an arrow-head as variable as any head,
Wavering in a smudged heaven.
