From A Window

The roof is flat and tarred with little white stones.
A CCTV camera and a security lamp keep watch.
The front door’s made of a well-done steak coloured wood.
A chimney breast climbs up the wall to meet
a tiled apex peppered with lichens and mosses.
TV aerials make fish-bone shapes.
Ball-bearing berries grow in black spheres
on the backdrop of sky held together by stitches
woven by black branches.
Other trees, conical evergreens.

The tower of struts, wires and structures of steel
where, far as the eye can see
the sky is very blue
suggestive of sea:
its proximity.
