Liam Ferney


manoeuvring a dark path
in the pale green

days of too
much chlorine

we swapped m&m’s
outside the 10th annual

conference of weights
and measures

the pulmonary oedema
was the tail of her pleasures

served scones
at le dernier’s coronation

like rings on the floor
of the country pool

it was their business
to indulge the whims of the fool
