Hi mcee fya

thanks for posting - nice to hear from a 'local' so to speak!
I'm glad you like the cryptic man - he was a likeable fellow.


Peace,
Endy

i haven't posted here for some time - but this one certainly belongs with this collection.




The Egg Man

Mornin'
Mornin'
Beautiful mornin'

I've been awake all night, writing
Words that leave my bones in pain
I stand in the doorway squinting at an eight o'clock sun
He hands me a dozen
Free-range eggs, tucked in their cardboard nests
"Gertie died today," he says
Waiting for the money

I fumble with one hand, from pocket to empty jeans pocket
"****, I'm sorry, Harold…are you okay?"
"Well, it was expected… but you know, it still hits you."
"I'm sure."
" Anyway she's better off now - being as old as she was."
"Yes. Of course…"

I come up with a ten
"Can you change this?"
"Pay me next time."
"Okay - thanks."
"I buried her under the apple tree this morning.
It was her favourite place in all the world."
"You did the right thing."
"She was a good old bird."

I watch him walk back across the grass
Workman's braces stand out on his shirted back
And he's wearing a flat cap
He waves a military hand
Before he climbs in his van and drives away
I stand there long after he has gone
Soon his generation will be moving on
