Walking the high road today with my dog
A small dog, the same colour
as a mountain tussock
I saw a possum on the road
Its jaw hanging open
Incisors jutting forward
I picked him up by his bushy tail
And laid him gently to the side
I shall collect him tomorrow
Dig a hole and bury him under
the liquid amber, it has leaves
that change from yellow to red to purple
I told my son this and he said
‘ you’re not doing that with me in the car’.
I cant remember whether I have posted this before..but I like it so here it is.
