TIME LAG

 

from Plasterer’s Mate 1992 by Toby Granville

 

You stare at me, impatient to be away

as the five o’clock light dapples your

marbled nakedness. Your eyes are already

elsewhere, every nerve striving escape.

 

The pan you fried eggs in lies empty,

the last of yesterday’s papers sculpted by

plaster wiping’s wait the black plastic bag.

 

Now our history-moled basement walls

are hung with new ochre skins

made from you unblemished plaster,

drying in the trapped heat.
