Mid-Season Suspension

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 One day from under these floodlights
the sun will rise in early spring,
set like the memories you’ve left
in gathering blue over the river.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 An extra layer will go, light jackets
the order of the day at some T-junction
of path and water where no-one knows
your name and you have nothing to offer.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now, in the darkness of the ground, lit
for the night in unrelenting cold,
we have only the season’s doubts,
form tables and transitory odds,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 winding runs of unreadable note
and mid-season suspension of belief,
for the team, in all that we know.
