That Mustard

Abbotsford Alleys

From Regent to the river.

The Morning glory heralds the train

Castors are drying, thumb prints fading

Conyza colonies – ready to float. Amphoteric riddle.

Bags of pissy walls; seeking classification; mongst azoturic neighbours

Ivy crawling

Viola sprawling – door knockers; stained glass; weeping cherry silver birch

Cottage white roses – beetles not birds

Wormwood. Visions versus coma.

Nut Sedge the Golden; beware lime, paths and pavers.

Mullein is rattling and chattering; ready to roll.

Fat Hen ganders; growing tallest against the north walls

White bells; to ripe fruits; Nightshade

Sonchus tips and veins are pruple – ponder phosphorus – does it curdle?

Geranium flowers, bring scrunched up faces; is its doctrine of disdain?

Rose of Sharon. Malva, hibiscus, silky petals, monk wine tales

Spurge – superstition on the path;

Cursed Fig

Abbotsford Alleys

Tufts of soft down

Of Yellow Gowan.

Shaggy white tufts in Preston today

Sepals tights, stout in height, deep green the lions teeth

Cut short by proud lawn owners

Where wind-a-blow, i see you grow

Disorder remedy

Tufts of soft down
