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
