the school gate mums are gluing themselves to the British museums

with Fortnum bags

in Middle Islamic

surviving the Mongul invasions

residing in the Castle of the Assassins

creating celestial globes —

the school gate mums are gluing themselves to the British museums

with Fortnum bags

29 protons to the nucleus

spinning off the sun

joining forces and forming

the dark ore:

copper, alloy, brass —

the school gate mums are gluing themselves to the British museums

with Fortnum bags

predicting harvests

defeating famines

viewing the constellations

from the earth

looking out at the heavens—

the school gate mums are gluing themselves to the British museums

with Fortnum bags

buying a little something

nothing special
