The walls are white,
the garage doors yellow.
Sun-trap bay windows
view fields and fields,
telegraph poles, a dark steeple.
in the gaps between trucks
the electrical salesman, Mr Wykes:
seven minutes to three,
company bunkum on the back seat.
A safe bet the magnetic eves
have had their way with the wasps.
He reads the sky in the bent glass.
A pram or a suitcase inside the porch.
