Written long ago

The strike in my body is not ready for arbitration

it’s tired and unwilling to commit.

There aren’t any favourable conditions

the forecast says grey skies and rain.


I haven’t forgotten about it

I know it,

I’ve been there

I grew-up there.


I want the smiles and flavours,

I miss the perfume and smell of onions.

I want the colours of the flag,

I miss the music and smiles.

I miss the Death every November with her jokes and beauty.
