Tapa Notebooks

p 46

19/10        (night)
                 diagonals of rain
                 earlier – the English
                 taking the sunlight while it lasts

                 (though this season has been
                 overly long).

                 I do not miss my country

                 earlier – squirrels
                 nibble the damp course

                 & there is nothing
                 upon the long mantelpiece

                 (on the floor:
                 ‘Not Everything Remotely’
                 ‘Understanding Property’)


Am I sentimental about the environment?
Why should I care about young people?
(somehow I do)

Poetry is a kind of ecological practice.
