#2,686 Home Game

Mike Bell/ June 15, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

That hour & day of week
when trippers are less a
loutish obstruction [as if
they are not wanted] – it
is that time when waves
are kind & less is more a
thing – tarmac a park for
locals – tanned skaters &
yaps of lead-off dogs on
Hove Lawns – mown flat
& feint cut & whiffs of all
BN’s varieties of grass – I
dig at a tub of ice cream
& you navigate a cone – I
circle [as a common gull
always does] – Brighton
playing at home is good
to do – Roll on our game
