Pete Spence


get your mezzo 
out of here
go fall off 
the western edge 
of Africa
the Canary Islands 
may take you in
if you sing sweetly 
though the Dugong
will stay aloof
the coral 
needs colouring
find a sway
of tones
work them
into a beacon
like taking
your music
at room

we put up
a weather balloon
next thing
we got rain
