‘Crouch End, July 2, 2017’ by Lucy Dougan
High summer’s buddleia, cow parsley, dog-roses
spill out like the children
beside the train that same morning
(standing room only Oxford to Paddington).
It must have been some kind of historical re-enactment
so that I felt at probably almost precisely
the moment of your death that
this is no time and all times.
