Poems on the Buses Exhibition

Here’s bindweed for the man
who just has to chat on a long haul flight

here’s love-in-the-mist for a fixation
with a minor celebrity’s long glossy hair

here's rose bay willow herb for everyone
whose title is more impressive than they are

here’s knapweed with instructions
for your daily flint chipping practice

here’s soapwort for when
supermarkets run out of hand sanitiser

here’s cuckoo pint
for the first beer of spring

here’s snapdragon for
the most fun you will have today
