Mohammed’s lovely daughter
who has been lately married

sweeps over the road
in her robes of blue and silver –

by the sea and the sky.

The woman from number five
with dead hair, squint specs

– a skeleton in a raincoat,
an absence with an opinion –

says, ‘There’s anither yin
that thinks she’s It.’
