Cuts and Valence

Intuitively, we glimpse
What presstitutes and their pimps
Would hide, whilst Cressida Dick
Brings, to the arithmetic
Of the Home Office, balance,
A less negative valence,
When she says “We are but stretched.”

On glimpsing what my friend fetched
From the car boot, hunter green,
I looked towards the crash scene,
And his entrance into it —

A paramedic’s jacket,
Good God, and the trousers too,
Of that green I had glimpsed through
The back window, green, the same,
But animate on his frame;
And I watched that green made quick
Whilst he posed as a medic.
