Quick Ragwort – yellow dabs –
lazy acrylic brush strokes – A
path of bent grass – trudgers

& runners have passed – Cow
pats [tar blotches & liquorice
heaps – a depending when] –
Underbelly of fern turning to

rot [low browning knots] – as
berries swing heavy – Scents
of wetness – a drained ditch –

Foot pains [a crippling] until
ease & rest on a fallen tree &
my being – in this present – is
fixed by loosened boot laces
