A postcard of Battersea Power Station

A postcard of Battersea Power Station

You sent me a postcard
Of Battersea Power Station
One of those touristy ones
With the chimneys in focus

Your words were implying
That you were writing it naked
Tipsy on bubbly wine
On a Sunday evening

I called you to ask you
Were you really naked
That time you sent me a postcard
Of Battersea power station

You laughed at me on the phone
And said I was funny
And then said ‘I’ll call you back’
Because the news is on TV

    hey anton – great to see you at dVerse – how’s life? was quite busy the last week but so good to read a poem of you — read it three times and really like it..think i have to dive into your archives every once and a while…love the mood in this..the sadness of missing things that are there and then the moment passed and the words have no longer any meaning… love your writing..think i already told you a hundred times..and won’t stop…haha….heading for a holiday on friday…a much needed break..
