Your Sundays

Another Sunday!
You disliked Sundays: all that
organ music on

the BBC. Bed-
ridden, you’d listen to your
books, turning over

to avoid bedsores.
Is There A Sabbath for Thought?
The peace that passes . . .

I’d find you asleep
— perhaps this was the idea —
the voice running on.

You hated contrived
endings. I’d like to think you
would approve this one.
