Oh I know the cemetery willow…

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

Oh I know the cemetery willow
Kind regards friend

**

As a young man
I collected watches

**

The pocket kind
With photos inside

**

Sweet upright strangers
Long dead

**

Willow shakes her hair

**

Willow shakes her hair
The radio comes on as if by magic

**

My step son fears spiders so I wonder what ancient village he comes from

**

Don’t be sentimental
But sing each morning

**

Great grandfather
His wife sobbing behind a tree

He was a wheelwright
He made coffins for children

Rain this morning
I walk among apple trees

I want to kneel down
