hanging

judas wants to go to tescos
    easter money burns his pocket
in drizzling rain
    we enter the garden
    slipping from the wash of traffic
into the silence
   of running water

'listen' I say
   as he tip toes away on exagerated feet

from tree to tree
   they sing
      in sweetness marking territory

         a dog barks twice
