    The western front

    Her breasts were small and perfect
    A plane was flying between the rooftops
    Wasps were swarming the heather
    I was eating a cucumber sandwich
    A tartan rug was on the lawn
    I heard a bycycle bell ring
    It was a Sunday I was full of dread
    The fridge was broken
    The milk had curdled
    Dried up worms were crisping
    in the hallway
    I told my father I loved him
    As any son should
    Before he dies.
    I told myself
    That everything was good.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    Very cool poem.
    The line about the worms was really good.
    Glad that you continue to post here, despite feedback; your work always intrigues me.
