Regression

At
a quarter past twelve
a night when the weak winter is softening
wind coming in from the west
secretive trees rub their hands together
another pair of socks would be good.

the sweetness of the littlest peas
fuzzy around the edges with caterpillar dust
dying bougainvillea flowers
red ants climbed steadily from the ground
there are errant hairs everywhere.
