We make our way down to the churchyard
in matching snoods,
arpeggiating our twiggy digits
against our rough crescent chins,
the moon a dull hubcap
snagged in a tree.

as we tip-toe round the graves,
sort of finding our stride
after an owl says something in the bell tower.
Cecil watches the porch in case of Satan,
ready with a silver closh
