New poem: Sign
I saw a sign ‘Not an exit’. It was on a door.
I thought that that would be a very useful
sign to have. I would put it on our fireplace
so that the cats would know not to go up
the chimney. I would put it on the fridge to
stop my children trying to leave home that
way. I would put it on the toilet bowl to stop
the goldfish from trying to find freedom through
there. I would put it on my copy of ‘Powerful
People’s Book of Great Excuses’ so that they
would know that they don’t work. I would put
it on a gravestone to say, you’re carrying on
in a different sort of a way.
