Winterlust

 

Pissing in the snow
     I managed
          I   LO\ 
                  You leant 
                           laughing
           out the window of the digs
      in Grosvenor Square:
“You’re mad,” you said 
                                “pure mad -
     What about Mrs Quinn,
What if she comes out?”
       She didn’t.
But I wish that I’d climbed in.
