Transparent Words - Poetry


Philip Johnson

The Multi Denominational Church

With enthusiasm,

dads and lads under a shed load of adrenalin,
high in imagination,

immediately the Germans had opened up the world cup campaign
with a 4 - 2 win.

Most in anticipation of our own victory against Paraguay

preyed we avoid the embarrassment we have experienced
in previous comps.

Me ahead of Rooney on the road to recovery,

loosed a fearsome drive at a makeshift (coats piled on the floor) goal
then, after handing the ball over to the nearest infant,

able to clear 200 yards to the next street before the glass had stopped
its cascade,

in the bath before the final whistle of the policeman, to whom the vehicle belonged, had blown.
