before I've had time
to voice my hurts
you've apologised …
another gift from the cat:
a goldfinch, still warm

  an old suitcase
full of memories ...
his ration book
and the wedding dress
she never got to wear

    a squirrel lands
on the pine branch
needles scatter –
how tenuous the links
in a long life

who knows
where any of us will be
a year from now ...
the road narrows until it melts
into the horizon

space André Surridge - New Zealand

  a vinyl record
my dead friend left
the story of an imperfect life
still plays
in the scratches
