Canto CCXVII

Barely an hour has separated us
from the gas explosion’s lethal flash
on Denmark Hill, those same shops that we passed

just out the hospital, content and hushed,
our unborn child, our slow, deliberate steps,
our brand new stainless steel toilet brush,

on lookout for uneven paving slabs.

    All this drama but it was the words, “our bran new stainless steel toilet brush” that caught my attention. No matter what major events occur, the humdrum events of everyday life march on in tandem.
