at the side of the hardware store car park
embarrassed by the weight of red berries
bows its branches for magpies to pluck dinner

<———–but I want more———–>

I’m going to buy
bathroom sealant
white, soft and acidic
to squeeze out
as thin worms

<———–but I want more———–>

I’m going to buy
a cross-head screwdriver
I love the purity of its
chrome steel extension

<———–but I want more———–>

I’m going to buy
my very own
arc welder

I need the light
of steel as plasma

its livid blue arc
my own private
sun.

<———–but I want more———–>
