By Putney Bridge


Down by Putney Bridge
slow day descending

into darkness –

river high

but not unduly
temperature falling

but not that cold –

late joggers

back and forth
ducks and geese

on the causeway –

first lights of evening

I watch the waters flow

I think of you
your one betrayal
after another

John Lyons
