New Year

Janet Charman

chuck open the curtains
slap of sun
clothes sworn never to be worn again
put on
that nipple revealing pocketless top
buttoned to the neck
these sparrow's egg blue pajama pants
extra large elasticated waist
deranged lights pulled free of browned green tree
rubbish ornaments
find a respite with the League of Nations dolls
packed away on a case by case basis
Palestine Kashmir Timor Darfur Parihaka
rearrange the furniture
so the kids don’t feature
eat up the fruit
