I. James: ‘My memories are very quiet these days’

My memories are very quiet
these days:
these days
are slow and sloth-like,
ignoring the news
in the garden sun.
                           Sober since the birth
of this pandemic. Epic weight
off to just sit and breathe
in freshly cut grass and lids closed
with an amber-curtain glow.


I. James
