Red Alert

by Steven Taylor

I’ve been anxious since the warning
My partner has brought in the window boxes
We don’t want them to kill someone
If we had a cat we’d have told him
Anything can happen now it’s gone to red
I’ve just seen a pigeon struggling, fluttering
In the wrong direction. Imagine what
It would be like if the trees were weighted
With abundance, if it was summer instead
Of winter. If Eunice was a communist
If Jeremy Corbyn was Prime Minister
