Holy Pleasures:

With sample books
scissored to
divine texture/
pattern consequences,
cardboard cartons
upended and fourth walls
removed to enable
furniture shifts configured
from refashioned
matchboxes,
Piccadilly/ Benson & Hedges,
Kellogg’s cartons,
fabric swatches
all cadged off Mum,
you suspended hours in
cutting, gluing, designing, playing
Creator
*
Understand here, caretaking
in a house you own, buying
glass-fronted pine bookcases –
nothing much has changed
except
your Dad has
hung up his bib n brace
overalls, sold his
van, thrown stiffened paste
brushes, and left the art of
Wallpaper
behind
