Poems on the Buses Exhibition

Three houses south
wild strawberries are escaping
from patio containers;
throwing lines out over the lips
of terracotta cliffs,
abseiling down to occupy
the crazy paving.
In nights to come
they will creep up the street
to blindfold our windows,
choke our sockets, slip
their green fuses under our door
and pick their moment.
