the leccy-blank

suddenly
I’m toasting

suddenly
the heat is rising
beneath me

I am in
a cocoon

be-shrouded
by blanketry

all of me
is warm
all of me
except …

suddenly my toes
are en-ovened

my legs
are baking
in a heat
arising

my calves are warm
my knees my thighs

there is heat beneath
my buttocks
my chilly old
buttocks

tomb womb
my cocoon

my
feet are warm
dear lord
my feet

so
very warm

  1. Don’t know what it’s like up your way but down here leccy-blankies are a long way off. Even the cool nights aren’t cold enough for a heater yet and they reckon May is going to but up to 4 degrees warmer than the average
