Quietus W New 130610

Not the leaf
on the tree
Not the glass
The plate
chipped above
the vine
The umbilical cord

Not the oven
or the car
British racing green
Not the play structure
the rope ladder
The plum tree
sagging to the ground

Not the nail polish
yellow dull
The apple
packed for lunch
The post-it note
Not the clock
Papa’s clock

Not the speech
the dream
Not the bell
the rings
Not the candle
the seal
The paper boat

Nothing lasts
