Poems on the Buses Exhibition

securing its case to the wall,
removing the bullets,
lying to the kids about its purpose.

Now here you are, the rain
the only sound on this Scottish moor
and you on your belly, wriggling.

How gentle the doe is,
nervously testing the air
which carries no scent of you.

In your sights now,
she pauses to flinch off a horsefly,
lowers her head to the heather.
