The museum attendants
wouldn’t know what to do with it.

School parties would visit
and make notes like small frames.

The ceiling above it
would be fitted with halogen.

The floor below it
would be painted grey.

It would have a title
like ‘lifting’ or ‘stretching’
‘yawning’ or ‘ache’.

It would be dark outside
or approaching morning
with sunlight streaming
and dogs waking
or it would be very early
or getting late

the gift shop would murmur
It would hang on the wall
like an edge of lace

There would be people
or not people
looking or not looking
there or not there.

    i read it in the other post and all i though is – MORE I WANT MORE
    then i scrolled down my blog surfer and saw this… i am happy you did…

  2. Hi Dhyan, thanks for visiting and reading. Still playing around with these, but I agree, the above beginning does need more. Think this version needs an edit, will see how it develops and where it wants to go 🙂
