so what colour should they be
these swaying black and white pansies
purple like their cousins
or white on black like zebra stripes

the girl in the gingham dress
caught behind smoked glass
in that urgent second
between train stopping and doors opening


when the dull and conventionally contemporary attack you
take as a compliment of their dullness and your relevance
